The last couple passes shows that Soudelor is decently shielded from the intruding dry air for now, but it's going to have some trouble intensifying if those outer bands congeal into one giant eyewall.

Eye looks like it's expanding, shown by the moat, another EWRC perhaps. I'll not be surprised to see this explode to possibly a STY by Saturday

given how wide that outer eyewall is, and this is the 3rd eyewall replacement, I am not sure this even gets above 110 kts again. Before one replacement cycle is complete, another one begins. May be looking at a large, broad typhoon for Taiwan instead of an intense one. may be worse, however, as the larger system could produce more rainfall

It's banding structure, while better than Chan-hom and Nagaka, doesn't promote too much intensification. Cat 3/4 landfall, however, is still possible IMO.

Large storms are very dangerous as they produce larger waves and storm surge.

Cat 4 into Taiwan...

WDPN31 PGTW 060900
MSGID/GENADMIN/JOINT TYPHOON WRNCEN PEARL HARBOR HI//
SUBJ/PROGNOSTIC REASONING FOR TYPHOON 13W (SOUDELOR) WARNING NR 29//
RMKS//
1. FOR METEOROLOGISTS.
2. 6 HOUR SUMMARY AND ANALYSIS.
TYPHOON (TY) 13W (SOUDELOR), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 345 NM SOUTH-
SOUTHEAST OF KADENA AB, HAS TRACKED WEST-NORTHWESTWARD AT 11 KNOTS
OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED ENHANCED INFRARED (EIR) SATELLITE
IMAGERY DEPICTS A 23NM EYE WITH TIGHTLY-CURVED DEEP CONVECTIVE
BANDING AND RADIAL OUTFLOW. THERE IS GOOD CONFIDENCE IN THE CURRENT
POSITION BASED ON THE EYE FEATURE. A 060546Z SSMI IMAGE REVEALS
CONCENTRIC EYEWALLS WITH A SMALL INNER EYEWALL OF ABOUT 50NM
DIAMETER AND A LARGER, 160NM DIAMETER EYEWALL, SEPARATED BY A WELL-
DEFINED MOAT FEATURE. THIS DOUBLE EYEWALL CONFIGURATION HAS
PERSISTED FOR ABOUT 12 HOURS WITH LITTLE CHANGE IN INTENSITY; THE
CURRENT INTENSITY IS ASSESSED AT 90 KNOTS BASED ON CURRENT INTENSITY
ESTIMATES OF T5.0 (90 KNOTS) FROM KNES AND PGTW. UPPER-LEVEL
ANALYSIS INDICATES A GENERALLY FAVORABLE ENVIRONMENT WITH LOW
VERTICAL WIND SHEAR AND RADIAL OUTFLOW. TY SOUDELOR IS TRACKING
ALONG THE SOUTHERN PERIPHERY OF A DEEP-LAYERED SUB-TROPICAL RIDGE
(STR) TO THE NORTH.
3. FORECAST REASONING.
A. THERE IS NO SIGNIFICANT CHANGE TO THE FORECAST PHILOSOPHY FROM
THE PREVIOUS PROGNOSTIC REASONING MESSAGE. BASED ON THE 060036Z
ASCAT BULLS-EYE IMAGE, WHICH DEPICTS EXPANSIVE 35-KNOT AND 50-KNOT
WIND FIELDS, THE CORRESPONDING WIND RADII HAVE BEEN INCREASED
SLIGHTLY.
B. TY 13W WILL CONTINUE ON A WEST-NORTHWESTWARD TRAJECTORY
THROUGH TAU 48 UNDER THE STEERING INFLUENCE OF THE DOMINANT STR. IN
THE SHORT TERM, TY 13W IS FORECAST TO RE-INTENSIFY AFTER THE SYSTEM
COMPLETES THE CURRENT EYEWALL REPLACEMENT CYCLE (ERC); HOWEVER,
THERE IS A GREAT DEAL OF UNCERTAINTY IN TIMING AN ERC AS THEY CAN
PERSIST FOR 2 TO 3 DAYS. THIS UNCERTAINTY IS REFLECTED IN THE
INTENSITY GUIDANCE, WHICH VARIES SIGNIFICANTLY IN THE DEGREE OF RE-
INTENSIFICATION THROUGH TAU 36. THE JTWC FORECAST CONTINUES TO
REFLECT A SHARP RE-INTENSIFICATION TO 115 KNOTS BY TAU 36 DUE TO
ENHANCED POLEWARD OUTFLOW, INCREASING SST AND INCREASING OCEAN HEAT
CONTENT. AFTER TAU 36, TY 13W IS FORECAST TO MAKE LANDFALL OVER
TAIWAN THEN WEAKEN RAPIDLY AS IT TRANSITS ACROSS THE MOUNTAINOUS
TERRAIN THEN RE-EMERGE OVER THE TAIWAN STRAIT AS A WEAK TYPHOON. TY
SOUDELOR WILL MAKE A SECOND LANDFALL OVER THE EASTERN COAST OF CHINA
NEAR QUANZHOU.
C. IN THE EXTENDED TAUS, TY SOUDELOR WILL APPROACH THE WESTERN
EXTENT OF THE STEERING STR AND TURN POLEWARD. THE CYCLONE WILL
CONTINUE TO DETERIORATE AS IT TRACKS INLAND, LEADING TO ITS
DISSIPATION OVER LAND BY THE END OF THE FORECAST PERIOD. DYNAMIC
MODEL GUIDANCE REMAINS IN TIGHT AGREEMENT THROUGHOUT THE FORECAST
PERIOD, LENDING HIGH CONFIDENCE IN THE JTWC TRACK FORECAST.//

Incredible...

This data indicates it peaked 5 knots higher, 160 knots, and a pressure below 880 mb...

When will recon return to this great basin?

A direct hit of the eyewall on the Taiwanese capital, Taipei is possible. According to NOAA's historical hurricane tracks database, only 10 Category 4 or stronger equivalent typhoons since 1958 have tracked within 65 nautical miles of Taipei. The most recent was Jangmi in late September 2008. Super Typhoon Opal/Opel in early August 1962 was the equivalent of a Category 5 storm as it roared across the island.

In all, Taiwan has seen 18 Category 4 or stronger equivalent typhoon landfalls since 1958
