GFS continues with the fast development. Closer to Guam. The Marshalls better watchout.

GFS has a TS in 48-60 hours, which is more sensible. Remains in within that intensity before its closest approach to Guam. Enters the PAR as Amang (just like Mekkhala), intensifies quickly, bottoms out at 942 mb before slowing down, turning NW and weakening.

Even though the GFS frequently exaggerates things, I think we have a decent chance of seeing a January typhoon this year.

12z ECMWF is a bit stronger east of Guam's longitud.

1. FOR METEOROLOGISTS.
2. 6 HOUR SUMMARY AND ANALYSIS.
TROPICAL DEPRESSION (TD) 01W (ONE), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 217 NM
SOUTHEAST OF MAJURO, MARSHALL ISLANDS, HAS TRACKED NORTHWESTWARD AT
13 KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED ENHANCED INFRARED (EIR)
SATELLITE IMAGERY SHOWS PERSISTENT CONVECTION OVER AN OBSCURED LOW
LEVEL CIRCULATION. A WEAK AND FRAGMENTED FORMATIVE BAND IS ALSO
EVIDENT ALONG THE SOUTHERN FLANK. THE INITIAL POSITION IS PLACED WITH
FAIR CONFIDENCE BASED ON THE EIR LOOP AND LINED UP WITH A SEMI-CLOSED
CIRCULATION FEATURE IN THE 041503Z 36GHZ SSMIS MICROWAVE IMAGE. THE
INITIAL INTENSITY OF 25 KNOTS IS BASED ON THE DVORAK INTENSITY
ESTIMATES OF T1.0 AND T1.5 FROM KNES AND PGTW AND IS CONSISTENT WITH
THE EIR CONVECTIVE STRUCTURE. THE INITIAL POSITION AND INTENSITY ARE
ALSO CONSISTENT WITH NEARBY SURFACE OBSERVATIONS. ENVIRONMENTAL
ANALYSIS INDICATES A MARGINALLY FAVORABLE ENVIRONMENT WITH LOW TO
MODERATE (15 TO 20 KNOT) VERTICAL WIND SHEAR (VWS) OFFSET BY GOOD
RADIAL OUTFLOW WITH A STRONG POLEWARD BIAS. SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES
ARE VERY CONDUCIVE AT 28-30 CELSIUS. THE CYCLONE IS TRACKING ALONG
THE SOUTHWEST PERIPHERY OF THE SUBTROPICAL RIDGE (STR) TO THE
NORTH-NORTHEAST.
3. FORECAST REASONING.
A. THIS IS THE INITIAL PROGNOSTIC REASONING MESSAGE AND SETS THE
FORECAST PHILOSOPHY FOR THIS SYSTEM.
B. TD 01W WILL CONTINUE TRACKING NORTHWESTWARD TOWARD A BREAK IN
THE STR. AFTER TAU 48 AND TRACKING OVER MAJURO, A SECONDARY STR TO
THE NORTHWEST WILL ASSUME STEERING AND DRIVE THE SYSTEM ON A MORE
WEST-NORTHWESTWARD DIRECTION AND, BY TAU 72, WILL JUST HAVE TRACKED
OVER KWAJALEIN ATOLL. DECREASING VWS AND IMPROVING POLEWARD OUTFLOW
WILL FUEL A SLOW INTENSIFICATION TO 45 KNOTS BY TAU 72.
C. AFTER TAU 72, TD 01W WILL CONTINUE ON A WEST-NORTHWESTWARD
TRACK TOWARD GUAM UNDER THE SECONDARY STR. THE FAVORABLE
ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS WILL PERSIST AND PROMOTE FURTHER
INTENSIFICATION, REACHING 55 KNOTS (POSSIBLY HIGHER) BY TAU 120. THE
AVAILABLE NUMERICAL GUIDANCE IS IN OVERALL GOOD AGREEMENT WITH THE
TRACK WITH CTCX AS THE NOTABLE OUTLIER ON THE LEFT MARGIN OF THE
MODEL ENVELOPE. HOWEVER, DUE TO THE FORMATIVE NATURE OF THE SYSTEM,
THERE IS LOW CONFIDENCE IN ALL PORTIONS OF THE FIRST JTWC WARNING
TRACK THAT IS LAID JUST RIGHT OF CONSENSUS TO OFFSET THE UNLIKELY
CTCX SOLUTION.//

I'm not seeing anything that qualifies this as a depression. JMA hasn't mentioned it yet. It's a disturbance, of course. GFS is much more bullish on development than the EC, which develops a weak TC then dissipates it east of the Philippines by the 14th. I find it hard to believe the GFS solution of a strong typhoon striking the Philippines on the 15th.

Premature renumbering by JTWC.
How is this a depression?

GFS, ECMWF, and NAVGEM recognizes a newly developed Tropical
Depression 01W and are bringing this developing circulation to the
north of Pohnpei and Chuuk through the next several days. A
Tropical Storm Watch has been issued for Majuro, Mili, Ailinglaplap
and Kwajalein in the Republic of the Marshall Islands as TD01W
remains nearby most of these Marshall Islands this weekend. Now,
computer guidance intensifies TD01W in the coming days as it drives
NW and away from the Marshall Islands, yet winds, seas and rainfall
will elevate near and above respective FSM and Marshall States in
the path of TD01W. Hence, we will continue to provide updates as we
collaborate coordination efforts with JTWC about this developing
tropical system.

Really does not look like a TD, not even close. Development is likely, but it would take place in a matter of days rather than hours.

Anything could happen. However, this should remain a TD or less for the next 120 hours. After that, there's more room for intensification---unless shear impedes it like the previous west-oriented storms.

Wow, the latest GFS is even stronger through hour 156..... It keeps it as a minimal TD or less throughout the first 120 hours. Hour 132 is when things start ramping up.

We all know what happened to the other invests, lol

Weaker at peak and JTWC is honest on the latest Dvorak fix. Let's see what they will do.


WDPN31 PGTW 050900
MSGID/GENADMIN/JOINT TYPHOON WRNCEN PEARL HARBOR HI//
SUBJ/PROGNOSTIC REASONING FOR TROPICAL DEPRESSION 01W (ONE) WARNING
NR 003//
RMKS/
1. FOR METEOROLOGISTS.
2. 6 HOUR SUMMARY AND ANALYSIS.
TROPICAL DEPRESSION (TD) 01W (ONE), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 84 NM
EAST OF MILI, HAS TRACKED NORTHWESTWARD AT 08 KNOTS (KTS) OVER THE
PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE IMAGERY (MSI) SHOWS
FLARING CONVECTION AROUND AN ILL-DEFINED, OBSCURED LOW LEVEL
CIRCULATION (LLC). THE INITIAL POSITION IS PLACED WITH LOW
CONFIDENCE BY EXTRAPOLATING FROM A 050536Z SSMIS 37 GHZ MICROWAVE
IMAGE WHICH SHOWS A HINT OF FORMATIVE BANDING WRAPPING TOWARDS THE
LLC. THE INITIAL INTENSITY OF 25 KNOTS IS BASED ON 6-HOUR OLD PGTW
DVORAK CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF T1.5/25KTS. HOWEVER, THE MOST
RECENT PGTW DVORAK FIX WAS TOO WEAK FOR DVORAK.
THE ENVIRONMENT IS
MARGINALLY FAVORABLE WITH LOW (10-15 KT) VERTICAL WIND SHEAR, POOR
OUTFLOW, AND WARM (29-30 CELSIUS) SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURE. THE
CYCLONE IS TRACKING SLOWLY NORTHWESTWARD TOWARD A BREAK IN A
SUBTROPICAL RIDGE (STR) TO THE NORTH.
3. FORECAST REASONING.
A. THERE IS NO CHANGE TO THE FORECAST PHILOSOPHY SINCE THE
PREVIOUS PROGNOSTIC REASONING MESSAGE.
B. TD 01W WILL CONTINUE TRACKING SLOWLY NORTHWESTWARD TOWARD THE
BREAK IN THE STR UNTIL TAU 48 WHEN THE STR WILL BUILD TO THE NORTH
AND TURN TD 01W WEST-NORTHWESTWARD. SLIGHTLY IMPROVED OUTFLOW WILL
ENABLE SLOW INTENSIFICATION TO 35 KNOTS BY TAU 36 AND STEADY
INTENSITY THROUGH TAU 72. TD 01W WILL PASS NEAR KWAJALEIN PRIOR TO
TAU 72.
C. AFTER TAU 72, TD 01W WILL CONTINUE ON A WEST-NORTHWESTWARD
TRACK TOWARD GUAM. MARGINALLY FAVORABLE ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS
WILL PERSIST AND PROMOTE SOME ADDITIONAL INTENSIFICATION TO 40 KNOTS
(POSSIBLY HIGHER) BY TAU 120. NUMERICAL GUIDANCE IS IN POOR
AGREEMENT BUT ALL MEMBERS SHOW A GENERALLY WESTWARD TO WEST-
NORTHWESTWARD TRACK. THE MOST RECENT MODEL DATA SHOWED A SIGNIFICANT
SOUTHWARD SHIFT IN THE CONSENSUS TRACK. THIS SHIFT IS LARGELY DUE TO
THE ECMWF TRACKER, A NOTABLE SOUTHERN OUTLIER. THE JTWC FORECAST
TRACK CLOSELY FOLLOWS THE PREVIOUS TRACK. IF THE CONSENSUS TRACK
REMAINS FURTHER SOUTH, IT IS VERY LIKELY THE JTWC TRACK FORECAST
WILL SHIFT. BASED ON HIGH UNCERTAINTY IN THE INITIAL POSITION AND
MODEL GUIDANCE, THERE IS LOW CONFIDENCE IN THE JTWC TRACK FORECAST.//

Let's not rule out development and further intensification, but take the GFS runs with a grain of salt----for now. Personally, I expect this to remain at TD strength or below for the next five days or so. However, conditions are relatively favorable and would benefit the system if its structure catches up and improves.
