01W(DUJUAN). WARNING 5 ISSUED AT 18/09UTC.UPPER-LEVEL ANALYSIS INDICATES A MARGINAL  ENVIRONMENT WITH MODERATE (15-20 KNOTS) EASTERLY VERTICAL WIND SHEAR  (VWS) OFFSET BY ROBUST DIFFLUENT POLEWARD OUTFLOW. SST VALUES REMAIN  CONDUCIVE AT 29-30C. TS 01W IS LOCATED WITHIN A WEAK STEERING ENVIRONMENT SOUTH OF  A BREAK IN THE SUBTROPICAL RIDGE (STR) RESULTING FROM THE PRESENCE  OF A MAJOR SHORTWAVE TROUGH EXTENDING FROM JAPAN TO EAST OF TAIWAN. OVER THE  NEXT 36 HOURS, THE SHORTWAVE TROUGH WILL MOVE TO THE NORTHEAST AND  FILL, ALLOWING FOR THE STR TO THE EAST TO BUILD IN TO THE NORTHEAST  OF TS 01W, ALLOWING THE SYSTEM TO MOVE SLOWLY WESTWARD THROUGH  36H. AFTER 48H, THE STR AXIS REORIENTS SLIGHTLY TO A MORE  NORTHWEST-SOUTHEAST ORIENTATION, AND IN RESPONSE TS 01W WILL TURN TO  A MORE WEST-NORTHWEST TRACK THROUGH 72H. LANDFALL IS EXPECTED  NEAR 60H ALONG THE FAR NORTHEAST COAST OF MINDANAO. WIND SHEAR IS  CURRENTLY DOMINATING THE SYSTEM. HOWEVER, WIND SHEAR IS EXPECTED TO WEAKEN  SLIGHTLY OVER THE NEXT DAY OR SO, WHICH WILL ALLOW THE SYSTEM TO  REESTABLISH CORE CONVECTION, ENABLING A SLOW BUT STEADY  INTENSIFICATION TO A PEAK OF 50 KNOTS BY 48H. THERE IS  CONSIDERABLE UNCERTAINTY HOWEVER IN THE INTENSIFICATION FORECAST DUE  TO THE STEADY EASTERLY WIND SHEAR AND HOW MUCH THE STRONG POLEWARD OUTFLOW  WILL OFFSET THIS SHEAR. THE SYSTEM IS FORECAST TO CONTINUE TRACKING ALONG THE WESTERN  BOUNDARY OF THE DEEP-LAYER STR LOCATED TO THE EAST THROUGH THE  EXTENDED FORECAST PERIOD. BY 72H THE SYSTEM IS EXPECTED TO BE IN  THE BOHOL SEA, AND WILL TRACK NORTHWESTWARD OVER THE MAJOR ISLANDS  OF THE SOUTHWEST PHILIPPINES, REEMERGING INTO THE NORTHERN  SULU SEA BY 96H, AND INTO THE SOUTH CHINA SEA BEFORE 120H.INCREASING WIND SHEAR, DECREASED  UPPER-LEVEL OUTFLOW AND THE ENTRAINMENT OF DRIER AIR WILL WEAKEN THE  SYSTEM TO 25 KNOTS BY 120H.

01W(DUJUAN).NUMERICAL MODEL GUIDANCE IS IN FAIR AGREEMENT THROUGH 48H, WITH INCREASING  UNCERTAINTY BY 72H. THE UKMET DETERMINISTIC AND ENSEMBLE  SOLUTIONS CONTINUE TO SHOW AN UNLIKELY POLEWARD TRACK TO THE EAST OF  THE PHILIPPINES, WHILE THE GFS SOLUTION SHOWS AN EQUALLY UNLIKELY  DUE TO WEST TRACK. DISCOUNTING THE OUTLIERS, THE REMAINDER OF THE  CONSENSUS MEMBERS LIE CLOSE TO THE CONSENSUS MEAN, WITH A 280KM  SPREAD IN SOLUTIONS AT 72H.EVEN WHEN DISCOUNTING THE UKMET,  UKMET ENSEMBLE SHOWING THE UNLIKELY POLEWARD TRACK, AND THE GFS  DEPICTING A STRAIGHT WESTERLY TRACK, NUMERICAL MODEL GUIDANCE IS IN  POOR AGREEMENT AFTER 72H, WITH A 830KM SPREAD IN MODEL SOLUTIONS  BY 120H. THE JTWC FORECAST TRACK REMAINS CONSISTENT WITH THE  PREVIOUS FORECAST AND LIES NEAR THE ECMWF SOLUTION. OVERALL, THERE  IS POOR CONFIDENCE IN THE JTWC FORECAST TRACK, WHICH LIES SOUTH OF  THE MULTI-MODEL CONSENSUS, NEAR THE ECMWF SOLUTION.
