plenty of time left for Bopha to really wrap up...

ECMWF still developing this into a small but powerful typhoon, two words not normally used for WPAC systems, before slamming the Philippines...

any chance that this will still go further north rather than a more westward track?

Not likely with the ridge strengthening on top of it

look at this guys...

I think Bopha is just getting ready for something, that west- southwestward track also happened to STY mike in 1990 - when Mike returned to its WNW track, it intensified rapidly and attained its peak intensity. lets see if it will do the same thing... I hate to bench mark , but I cant help myself. hehe

Maybe ADT was onto something after all! It's looks pretty healthy to me. Latest ECM run misses Palau but is again bad news for eastern Viasayas, as if GFS 00z!

Edit: Impressive!

Now all of a sudden the models are in tight agreement in a track headed towards Eastern Visayas.

Down to 50kts by the JTWC

MSGID/GENADMIN/JOINT TYPHOON WRNCEN PEARL HARBOR HI//
SUBJ/PROGNOSTIC REASONING FOR TROPICAL STORM 26W (BOPHA) WARNING NR
15//
RMKS//
1. FOR METEOROLOGISTS.
2. 6 HOUR SUMMARY AND ANALYSIS.
TROPICAL STORM (TS) 26W (BOPHA), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 865 NM
EAST OF PALAU, HAS TRACKED WESTWARD AT 8 KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX
HOURS. ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE IMAGERY (MSI) INDICATES THAT
THE SYSTEM UNDERWENT A PERIOD OF SLIGHT WEAKENING OVER THE PAST SIX
HOURS, HOWEVER CONVECTION IS BEGINNING TO REBUILD OVER THE LOW LEVEL
CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC). THE INITIAL POSITION IS BASED ON THE
MSI AND THE PGTW FIX, AND IS SUPPORTED BY A 0744Z SSMIS 91GHZ IMAGE
WHICH REVEALS A FORMATIVE MICROWAVE EYE. THE INITIAL INTENSITY IS
ASSESSED AT 50 KNOTS TAKING INTO ACCOUNT THE WEAKENING TREND, WITH
DVORAK ESTIMATES RANGING FROM 35 TO 55 KNOTS. UPPER-LEVEL ANALYSIS
INDICATES THAT THE OVERALL OUTFLOW REMAINS GOOD, ALTHOUGH THE
EQUATORWARD CHANNEL NOW APPEARS TO BE MORE ROBUST THAN THE POLEWARD
CHANNEL. THE SYSTEM IS ABOUT 8 DEGREES SOUTH OF THE RIDGE AXIS, WITH
LIGHT (05-10 KNOT) VERTICAL WIND SHEAR (VWS). TS 26W HAS TRACKED
WESTWARD UNDER THE STEERING INFLUENCE OF THE DEEP SUBTROPICAL RIDGE
(STR) POSITIONED TO THE NORTH.
3. FORECAST REASONING.
A. NO CHANGE TO THE FORECAST PHILOSOPHY SINCE THE PREVIOUS
PROGNOSTIC REASONING MESSAGE.
B. TS 26W IS FORECAST TO TRACK WESTWARD THROUGH TAU 24 THEN
SHOULD TURN WEST-NORTHWESTWARD AS IT TRACKS ALONG THE SOUTHWESTERN
PERIPHERY OF THE EASTERN STR. AS THE SYSTEM BEGINS TO MOVE MORE
POLEWARD, CONTINUED FAVORABLE ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS SHOULD ALLOW
FOR STEADY INTENSIFICATION. DYNAMIC MODEL GUIDANCE HAS CONSISTENTLY
BEEN IN TIGHT AGREEMENT, WITH THE LONE OUTLIER BEING WBAR, WHICH
TRACKS WELL SOUTH OF THE OTHER AIDS.
C. IN THE EXTENDED TAUS, TS 26W IS EXPECTED TO TRACK WEST-
NORTHWESTWARD TOWARD A BREAK IN THE STR. LIGHT VWS, INCREASED
POLEWARD OUTFLOW, AND FAVORABLE SST WILL ALLOW TS 26W TO CONTINUE
INTENSIFYING TO A PEAK INTENSITY NEAR 105 KNOTS. THE DYNAMIC MODELS
REMAIN IN GOOD AGREEMENT THROUGHOUT THE FORECAST PERIOD, THEREFORE,
THERE IS HIGH CONFIDENCE IN THE JTWC FORECAST TRACK.//

The ragged eyewall indicates that Bopha is developing a banding eye, which may lead to some strengthening or may not, still nothing too impressive

MSGID/GENADMIN/JOINT TYPHOON WRNCEN PEARL HARBOR HI//
SUBJ/PROGNOSTIC REASONING FOR TROPICAL STORM 26W (BOPHA) WARNING NR
16//
RMKS//
1. FOR METEOROLOGISTS.
2. 6 HOUR SUMMARY AND ANALYSIS.
TROPICAL STORM (TS) 26W (BOPHA), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 815 NM
EAST-SOUTHEAST OF PALAU, HAS TRACKED WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD AT 9 KNOTS
OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED ENHANCED INFRARED IMAGERY (EIR)
REVEALS THAT THE LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC) HAS BECOME
PARTIALLY EXPOSED OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS, WITH THE DEEPEST
CONVECTION FOUND IN THE SOUTHERN SEMI-CIRCLE. A 0956Z SSMIS 91GHZ
IMAGE SHOWS A FORMATIVE MICROWAVE EYE WITH A FAIRLY COMPACT AREA OF
DEEP CONVECTION AROUND THE LLCC. THE INITIAL POSITION IS BASED ON
EIR AND THE AFOREMENTIONED SSMIS IMAGE WITH GOOD CONFIDENCE. THE
INITIAL INTENSITY WAS HELD AT 50 KNOTS BASED ON 45 KNOT DVORAK
ESTIMATES FROM ALL AGENCIES AND SLIGHTLY HIGHER VALUES FROM
AUTOMATED TECHNIQUES. UPPER-LEVEL ANALYSIS INDICATES THAT THE
OUTFLOW IS BECOMING LESS ROBUST DESPITE A POINT SOURCE OVERHEAD.
THE SYSTEM IS ABOUT 8 DEGREES SOUTH OF THE RIDGE AXIS, WITH LIGHT
(05-10 KNOT) VERTICAL WIND SHEAR (VWS). THE SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURE
(SST)IS A VERY FAVORABLE 30 DEGREES CELSIUS. DESPITE THESE FAVORABLE
ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS, TS 26W IS STRUGGLING TO MAINTAIN ITS
ORGANIZATION AT THIS LOW LATITUDE. THE SYSTEM IS UNDER THE
STEERING INFLUENCE OF THE DEEP SUBTROPICAL RIDGE (STR) POSITIONED
TO THE NORTH.
3. FORECAST REASONING.
A. NO CHANGE TO THE FORECAST PHILOSOPHY SINCE THE PREVIOUS
PROGNOSTIC REASONING MESSAGE.
B. TS 26W IS FORECAST TO TRACK WESTWARD THROUGH TAU 12 THEN
SHOULD TURN WEST-NORTHWESTWARD AS IT TRACKS ALONG THE SOUTHWESTERN
PERIPHERY OF THE EASTERN STR. AS THE SYSTEM FINALLY BEGINS TO GAIN
LATITUDE, CONTINUED FAVORABLE ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS SHOULD
ALLOW FOR STEADY INTENSIFICATION. DYNAMIC MODEL GUIDANCE HAS
CONSISTENTLY BEEN IN TIGHT AGREEMENT, WITH THE LONE OUTLIER BEING
WBAR, WHICH TRACKS WELL SOUTH OF THE OTHER AIDS.
C. IN THE EXTENDED TAUS, TS 26W IS EXPECTED TO TRACK WEST-
NORTHWESTWARD TOWARD A WEAKNESS IN THE STR. LIGHT VWS, INCREASED
OUTFLOW, AND A FAVORABLE SST WILL ALLOW TS 26W TO CONTINUE
INTENSIFYING TO A PEAK OF 100 KNOTS AT TAUS 96 AND 120. UNCERTAINTY
IS BEGINNING TO INCREASE AT THE VERY LATE TAUS AND BEYOND DEPENDING
ON THE STRENGTH OF THE STR IN THE MODELS. NGPS AND GFDN ARE
MAINTAINING A STRONG STR, DRIVING THE SYSTEM INTO LUZON WHILE GFS,
AND ECMWF TRACK SLIGHTLY MORE NORTHWESTERLY DUE TO A WEAKER STR. THE
FORECAST TRACK IS VERY CLOSE TO CONSENSUS. DESPITE THE DIFFERENCES
NOTED, CONFIDENCE IN THE JTWC FORECAST TRACK REMAINS HIGH WITH
FAIRLY GOOD DYNAMICAL MODEL AGREEMENT OVERALL.//

.SITUATION OVERVIEW...
TROPICAL STORM BOPHA IS NOW MOVING WEST. THE CURRENT FORECAST TRACK
TAKES BOPHA SOUTH OF NGULU AND THROUGH THE REPUBLIC OF PALAU. THIS

TROPICAL STORM BOPHA IS EXPECTED TO PASS ABOUT 180 MILES SOUTH OF
WOLEAI FRIDAY NIGHT. KEEP INFORMED OF THE LATEST BULLETINS FROM THE
YAP EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT OFFICE OR THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE.
PRACTICE YOUR TROPICAL CYCLONE PLAN AND IDENTIFY A SHELTER WHICH
WILL BE ABLE TO WITHSTAND STRONG WINDS IN CASE A WARNING IS ISSUED.

...WIND INFORMATION...
NORTHEAST WINDS OF 15 TO 20 MPH OVERNIGHT WILL INCREASE TO 20 TO
30 MPH WITH GUSTS TO 40 MPH BY FRIDAY AFTERNOON. WINDS WILL SHIFT TO
EAST FRIDAY NIGHT...THEN DIMINISH TO 15 TO 25 MPH FROM THE SOUTHEAST
ON SATURDAY. WINDS COULD INCREASE TO TROPICAL STORM FORCE FRIDAY
NIGHT IF BOPHA TRACKS FURTHER NORTH THAN EXPECTED...BUT THE MORE
SOUTHERN TRACK OF THE STORM HAS LESSENED THE THREAT OF TYPHOON
CONDITIONS.

...STORM SURGE AND SURF INFORMATION...
HAZARDOUS SURF OF 10 TO 12 FEET WILL BE POSSIBLE ALONG SOUTHERN AND
EASTERN SHORES FRIDAY THROUGH SATURDAY. COASTAL INUNDATION OF 1 TO
2 FEET MAY ALSO OCCUR AROUND HIGH TIDE.

...OTHER STORM EFFECTS...
HEAVY RAINFALL OF 3 TO 5 INCHES IS POSSIBLE FRIDAY THROUGH SATURDAY.

...FARAULEP...

...PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...
KEEP INFORMED OF THE LATEST BULLETINS FROM THE YAP EMERGENCY
MANAGEMENT OFFICE OR THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE. PRACTICE YOUR
TROPICAL CYCLONE PLAN AND IDENTIFY A SHELTER WHICH WILL BE ABLE TO
WITHSTAND STRONG WINDS IN CASE A WARNING IS ISSUED.

...WIND INFORMATION...
NORTHEAST WINDS OF 10 TO 20 MPH OVERNIGHT WILL INCREASE TO 15 TO 25
MPH WITH GUSTS TO 30 MPH BY FRIDAY AFTERNOON. WINDS WILL SHIFT TO
EAST FRIDAY NIGHT...AND TO SOUTHEAST ON SATURDAY. WINDS COULD
INCREASE TO TROPICAL STORM FORCE ON FRIDAY NIGHT IF BOPHA TRACKS
FURTHER NORTH THAN EXPECTED.

...STORM SURGE AND SURF INFORMATION...
HAZARDOUS SURF OF 10 TO 12 FEET WILL BE POSSIBLE ALONG SOUTHERN AND
EASTERN SHORES FRIDAY THROUGH SATURDAY. COASTAL INUNDATION OF UP TO
1 FOOT MAY ALSO OCCUR AROUND HIGH TIDE.

Multi-agency forecast tracks

I think an East Visayas hit is becoming more likely now, though after Visayas it is a question where this will end up. If I get this right, the GFS is kind of hinting an extratropical transition east of Luzon as the storm turns to the NE and makes a loop.
