THE AREA OF CONVECTION PREVIOUSLY LOCATED NEAR 13.9N
120.5E IS NOW LOCATED NEAR 17.1N 112.5E, APPROXIMATELY 320 NM SOUTH-
SOUTHWEST OF HONG KONG. ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE IMAGERY
(MSI) DEPICTS AN EXPOSED BUT DEFINED LOW-LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER
(LLCC) EMBEDDED WITHIN THE MONSOON TROUGH. MSI ALSO SHOWS A LARGE
AREA OF PERSISTENT DEEP CONVECTION DISPLACED WELL TO THE SOUTH,
HOWEVER, THIS AREA IS ASSOCIATED WITH THE CONVERGENT WESTERLY FLOW.
THIS IS CLEARLY EVIDENT IN AN 110228Z ASCAT IMAGE, WHICH SHOWS A
WEAK CIRCULATION WITH 10 TO 15 KNOT WINDS AND 20 TO 25 KNOT WINDS
ASSOCIATED WITH THE WESTERLY WIND BURST. UPPER-LEVEL ANALYSIS
INDICATES A MARGINAL ENVIRONMENT WITH MODERATE EASTERLY VERTICAL
WIND SHEAR. NUMERICAL GUIDANCE CALLS FOR THIS AREA TO GRADUALLY
CONSOLIDATE OVER THE NEXT 4 DAYS. MAXIMUM SUSTAINED SURFACE WINDS
ARE ESTIMATED AT 10 TO 15 KNOTS. MINIMUM SEA LEVEL PRESSURE IS
ESTIMATED TO BE NEAR 1008 MB. THE POTENTIAL FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF
A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE WITHIN THE NEXT 24 HOURS REMAINS LOW.

Guidance seems to be generally latching onto development, although the depictions in the model fields are of a pretty broad and sprawling area of low pressure. Combined with the limited time before it comes ashore Vietnam, the intensity ceiling might be fairly low.

JMA and NAVGEM at least brings onshore Vietnam a strong LPA/weak TS.

CMC is stronger, 990 mb, as it makes landfall.

EURO is now weaker, only a strong LPA or TD.

Just as the title now says, it looks like we have 19W.

Both JMA and JTWC have 19W briefly becoming a weak tropical storm before coming ashore in about 24 hours. This one won't take long to track.

1434Z ASCAT pass had some 35 kt barbs. I'd have a 35 kt tropical storm at 18Z.

19W NINETEEN 150913 1800 14.9N 111.2E WPAC 35 996

Best track is up to TS strength, so JTWC will have TS 19W shortly. Let's see if JMA also decides to upgrade and name it.

SUBJ/PROGNOSTIC REASONING FOR TROPICAL STORM 19W (VAMCO) WARNING NR
02//
RMKS//
1. FOR METEOROLOGISTS.
2. 6 HOUR SUMMARY AND ANALYSIS.
TROPICAL STORM (TS) 19W (VAMCO), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 180 NM
EAST-SOUTHEAST OF DA NANG, VIETNAM, HAS TRACKED WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD
AT 04 KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED ENHANCED INFRARED
SATELLITE IMAGERY DEPICTS DEEP CONVECTIVE CURVED BANDING WRAPPING
AROUND THE WESTERN PERIPHERY OF THE LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER
(LLCC). A 131839Z AMSU-B MICROWAVE IMAGE SHOWS A WELL DEFINED LLCC
WITH DEEP CURVED BANDING AND THE BULK OF THE CONVECTION ALONG THE
WESTERN PERIPHERY. A 131434Z ASCAT PARTIAL PASS SHOWS 35 KNOT WINDS
ALONG THE WESTERN PERIPHERY WHICH SUPPORTS THE INITIAL INTENSITY.
THE CURRENT POSITION IS BASED ON THE AFOREMENTIONED MICROWAVE IMAGE
AND A PGTW SATELLITE FIX WITH GOOD CONFIDENCE. ENVIRONMENTAL
ANALYSIS SHOWS THE SYSTEM HAS EXCELLENT EQUATORWARD OUTFLOW, LOW (10-
15 KNOT) VERTICAL WIND SHEAR, AND SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES ABOVE 30
CELSIUS. TS 19W IS CURRENTLY TRACKING ALONG THE SOUTHERN PERIPHERY
OF A DEEP-LAYERED SUB-TROPICAL RIDGE (STR) ANCHORED TO THE NORTH.
3. FORECAST REASONING.
A. THERE IS NO SIGNIFICANT CHANGE TO THE FORECAST PHILOSOPHY FROM
THE PREVIOUS PROGNOSTIC REASONING MESSAGE.
B. TS VAMCO WILL CONTINUE TO TRACK WESTWARD UNDER THE INFLUENCE
OF THE STEERING STR THROUGHOUT THE FORECAST PERIOD. THE SYSTEM WILL
INTENSIFY DUE TO FAVORABLE ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS PRIOR TO MAKING
LANDFALL OVER CENTRAL VIETNAM IN 18 HOURS. AFTERWARDS, TS 19W WILL
BEGIN TO RAPIDLY WEAKEN DUE TO LAND INTERACTION AS IT TRACKS INLAND.
THE SYSTEM IS FORECAST TO FULLY DISSIPATE BY TAU 48 OR POSSIBLY
SOONER. DYNAMIC MODEL GUIDANCE REMAINS IN GOOD OVERALL AGREEMENT
LENDING TO HIGH CONFIDENCE IN THE JTWC FORECAST.//

SUBJ/PROGNOSTIC REASONING FOR TROPICAL STORM 19W (VAMCO) WARNING NR
04//
RMKS/
1. FOR METEOROLOGISTS.
2. 6 HOUR SUMMARY AND ANALYSIS.
TROPICAL STORM (TS) 19W (VAMCO), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 86 NM EAST-
SOUTHEAST OF DA NANG, VIETNAM, HAS TRACKED WEST-NORTHWESTWARD AT
06 KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED MSI SHOWS A PARTIALLY
EXPOSED LLCC WITH THE DEEP CONVECTION OVER VIETNAM AND ON THE
NORTHERN SIDE OF THE LLCC. THE POSITION IS LAID WITH GOOD CONFIDENCE
BASED ON THE EXPOSED LLCC. THE INTENSITY HAS BEEN MAINTAINED AT 35
KNOTS BASED ON DVORAK INTENSITY ESTIMATES FROM RJTD. UPPER LEVEL
ANALYSIS CONTINUES TO INDICATE 20 TO 30 KNOTS OF NORTHEASTERLY VWS
PUSHING THE DEEP CONVECTION AHEAD OF THE LLCC AS WELL AS GOOD
EQUATORWARD OUTFLOW. TS 19W IS TRACKING ALONG THE SOUTHERN PERIPHERY
OF A DEEP-LAYERED STR TO THE NORTH.
3. FORECAST REASONING.
A. THERE IS NO SIGNIFICANT CHANGE TO THE FORECAST PHILOSOPHY FROM
THE PREVIOUS PROGNOSTIC REASONING MESSAGE.
B. TS VAMCO WILL CONTINUE TO TRACK GENERALLY WESTWARD UNDER THE
INFLUENCE OF THE STEERING STR THROUGH THE END OF THE FORECAST
PERIOD. WHILE SOME SLIGHT INTENSIFICATION IS POSSIBLE, IT IS
UNLIKELY TO OCCUR PRIOR TO LANDFALL IN CENTRAL VIETNAM. AS THE
SYSTEM CONTINUES TO INTERACT WITH THE TERRAIN OF SOUTHERN LAOS FROM
TAU 12 THROUGH TAU 36, EXPECT COMPLETE DISSIPATION OF THE SYSTEM.
MODEL GUIDANCE IS IN VERY TIGHT AGREEMENT LEADING TO HIGH CONFIDENCE
IN THE JTWC FORECAST TRACK, WHICH IS LAID SLIGHTLY NORTH OF THE
MULTI-MODEL CONSENSUS.//

It fired convection over the center just in time to move inland. Looks to be landfalling right now.

Is this strengthening inland? I think it looks better now than at landfall.

Vamco has apparently caused some flooding issues across portions of Southeast Asia. Not too surprising considering its slow motion and enhancement from the monsoon, but tragic nonetheless.
