CLICK TO ANIMATE. 01W(DUJUAN). WARNING 7 ISSUED AT 18/21UTC. ANIMATED ENHANCED INFRARED SATELLITE  IMAGERY REVEALS A PARTIALLY-EXPOSED LOW-LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER  (LLCC) POSITIONED UNDER THE SOUTHEAST EDGE OF AN AREA OF EXPANSIVE  DEEP CONVECTION. UNFORTUNATELY, THERE ARE NO USEFUL MICROWAVE IMAGES  TO HELP LOCATE THE CENTER, THEREFORE, THERE IS FAIR CONFIDENCE IN  THE INITIAL POSITION, WHICH APPEARS TO BE QUASI-STATIONARY OR SLOW  MOVING. THE INITIAL INTENSITY REMAINS ASSESSED AT 35 KNOTS BASED ON  A DVORAK ESTIMATES OF T2.5 (35 KNOTS) FROM ALL AGENCIES. UPPER-LEVEL  ANALYSIS INDICATES A MARGINALLY-FAVORABLE ENVIRONMENT WITH MODERATE  (20 KNOTS) SOUTHEASTERLY VERTICAL WIND SHEAR (VWS) OFFSET BY  DIFFLUENT EASTERLY FLOW AND ROBUST POLEWARD OUTFLOW. SST VALUES  REMAIN CONDUCIVE AT 29-30C. TS 01W IS TRACKING ALONG THE SOUTHWEST  PERIPHERY OF A DEEP-LAYERED SUBTROPICAL RIDGE (STR) POSITIONED TO  THE NORTHEAST. 3. FORECAST REASONING.    A. THERE IS NO SIGNIFICANT CHANGE IN THE FORECAST PHILOSOPHY FROM  THE PREVIOUS PROGNOSTIC REASONING MESSAGE.    B. TS 01W IS LOCATED WITHIN A WEAK STEERING ENVIRONMENT SOUTH OF  A BREAK IN THE SUBTROPICAL RIDGE (STR) ASSOCIATED WITH A MAJOR  SHORTWAVE TROUGH CURRENTLY OVER AND SOUTH OF JAPAN. IN GENERAL, THE  SYSTEM WILL TRACK SLOWLY WESTWARD TO WEST-NORTHWESTWARD THROUGH 36H  UNTIL THE MAJOR TROUGH SHIFTS EASTWARD AND ZONAL FLOW  PREDOMINATES. THIS WILL ALLOW THE STR TO RE-BUILD NORTHEAST AND  NORTH OF THE SYSTEM, WHICH WILL ALLOW THE SYSTEM TO ACCELERATE WEST- NORTHWESTWARD WITH LANDFALL OCCURRING NEAR 48H. WITH THE  EXCEPTION OF THE UKMET DETERMINISTIC AND UKMET ENSEMBLE MEAN  SOLUTIONS, NUMERICAL MODEL GUIDANCE IS IN FAIR AGREEMENT WITH A  325KM SPREAD IN SOLUTIONS AT 72H. TS 01W WILL INTENSIFY STEADILY  TO A PEAK INTENSITY OF 50 KNOTS BY 36H UNDER GENERALLY FAVORABLE  CONDITIONS, ESPECIALLY STRONG POLEWARD OUTFLOW. HOWEVER, THERE IS  SOME UNCERTAINTY IN THE PEAK INTENSITY DUE TO THE PERSISTENT  MODERATE VWS.     AFTER 72H, TS 01W WILL CONTINUE TO TRACK ACROSS THE  PHILIPPINE ARCHIPELAGO, AND BY 96H, WILL REACH THE SOUTH CHINA  SEA OFF THE ISLAND OF MINDORO. INTERACTION WITH THE ISLANDS AND  INCREASED WIND SHEAR WILL WEAKEN THE SYSTEM DOWN TO 25 KNOTS BY 120H.  NUMERICAL MODEL GUIDANCE DIVERGES AND IS IN POOR AGREEMENT IN THE  EXTENDED PERIOD WITH A LARGE SPREAD OF 980KM AT 120H (MINUS UKMET  AND UKMET ENSEMBLE MEAN). THESE SOLUTIONS ARE RECURVING THE SYSTEM  NORTHEASTWARD, WHICH IS UNLIKELY DUE TO THE STRONG LIKELIHOOD OF A  RE-BUILDING STR AND ZONAL UPPER-LEVEL FLOW OVER THE EAST CHINA SEA.  DUE TO THE QUASI-STATIONARY MOTION AND THE LARGE SPREAD IN MODEL  SOLUTIONS, THERE IS LOW CONFIDENCE IN THE JTWC FORECAST TRACK, WHICH  IS POSITIONED NEAR THE MULTI-MODEL CONSENSUS.

CLICK TO ANIMATE. 21S(GUAMBE). WARNING 3 ISSUED AT 18/21UTC. ANIMATED ENHANCED INFRARED SATELLITE  IMAGERY DEPICTS A CONSOLIDATING SYSTEM WITH CONVECTIVE BANDING  WRAPPING INTO A DEVELOPING CENTRAL DENSE OVERCAST FEATURE OBSCURING  THE LOW-LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC). A 181620Z MHS 89GHZ  MICROWAVE IMAGE SHOWS A COMPACT CORE OF DEEP CONVECTION WITH  FRAGMENTED BANDING OVER THE EASTERN SEMICIRCLE. UPPER-LEVEL ANALYSIS  INDICATES A FAVORABLE ENVIRONMENT WITH LOW (5-10 KNOTS) VERTICAL  WIND SHEAR (VWS), EXCELLENT EQUATORWARD OUTFLOW, IMPROVING POLEWARD  OUTFLOW INTO THE WESTERLIES TO THE SOUTH AND WARM (28-29C) SST  VALUES. THE INITIAL INTENSITY IS ASSESSED AT 55 KNOTS BASED ON THE  HIGHER END OF DVORAK INTENSITY ESTIMATES RANGING FROM 3.0-3.5 (45-55  KNOTS) AND AN 181800Z ADT ESTIMATE OF 3.5 (55 KNOTS). AN 181842Z  ASCAT-A PARTIAL IMAGE SUPPORTS THE INITIAL POSITION WITH FAIR  CONFIDENCE. TC 21S IS FORECAST TO TRACK SOUTHWARD TO SOUTH- SOUTHWESTWARD THROUGH T48h ALONG THE WESTERN PERIPHERY OF A NORTH- SOUTH ORIENTED SUBTROPICAL RIDGE (STR) POSITIONED TO THE EAST. AFTER  48h, THE SYSTEM WILL RECURVE SOUTHEASTWARD TO EAST-SOUTHEASTWARD  AS IT ROUNDS THE STR AND BEGINS TO INTERACT WITH THE MIDLATITUDE  WESTERLIES. TC 21S IS FORECAST TO BEGIN EXTRA-TROPICAL TRANSITION  (ETT) NEAR 72H AND WILL COMPLETE ETT BY 96H AS IT ACCELERATES  WITHIN THE STRONG WESTERLY FLOW AND GAINS FRONTAL CHARACTERISTICS.  NUMERICAL MODEL GUIDANCE IS IN GOOD AGREEMENT AND SUPPORTS THE JTWC  FORECAST TRACK WITH HIGH CONFIDENCE. TC 21S IS EXPECTED TO GRADUALLY  INTENSIFY THROUGH 36H WITH A PEAK INTENSITY OF 85 KNOTS/CATEGORY 2 AT 36H  AND 48H. STEADY WEAKENING WILL OCCUR AFTER 48H AS WIND SHEAR INCREASES AND SST VALUES COOL TO 25-24C.
