“达曼”好像明显减弱了,现在只有100KT,948mb。

Daman seems to have significantly weakened, now it has only 100KT wind and a pressure of 948mb.

现在会不会重新加强一些呢?因为白天气温高。

Will it intensify a little now? As the temperature is higher during daytime.

There is no discernible change in the ocean temperature between the day and the night. If Daman weakens it's most likely because the environment it's becoming unfavorable.

http://www.nrlmry.navy.mil/tc_pages/tc_home.html这里说的,
当时是格林尼治时间0点的数据,现在是3点的,加到了110KT,但是中心气压也只有941mb。

http://www.nrlmry.navy.mil/tc_pages/tc_home.html says so, what you have quoted was the data of 00:00 GMT, now we have that of 03:00, the intensity increased to 110KT, but the central pressure was only 941mb.

That's the JTWC's estimate using the Atkinson-Holliday wind-pressure relationship. Also, the 110/941 is the 00z ATCF entry. It won't change until 06z, even while the image changes. 925 is Fiji's.

现在我明白了,谢谢。不过很多中国风迷认为,“达曼”已经开始减弱,登陆时的强度不会超过三级旋风。

Now I understand. Thank you. But many Chinese typhoon trackers believe that Daman has already begun to weaken, and when making landfall, its intensity will be no more than category 3.

All pressure estimates are just that, estimates, with no Hurricane Hunters out there. I do think the 925mb is a bit generous...my guess is around 934mb right now (winds 115 kt).
