JTWC seems so strange lately with this storm. But really, I didn't expect to look at a Cat3-looking typhoon after it made landfall yesterday. I agree with 1900hurricane, the fact that it is staying in the waters of Central Philippines supports the idea of maintaining its intensity, but one would think that the effects of land friction and cold surge from the monsoon will disrupt Melor somehow..

00Z trackfile update is up to 125 kt, wihc matches up with their DT of 6.5. This is the strongest yet from JTWC.

RAMMB usually updates with the data shortly after it is put out. You can also get them nearly instantaneously from the NRL. For example, here is Melor's.

Melor looks about ready to come ashore once again.

I can't help but think that if it managed to rein in its outflow band it would be annular(ish), Melor has been looking more symmetrical since landfall.

ADT showed the eye temp spike above 15*C just before landfall.

Melor also just got a microwave score of 97.0 from CIMSS, which is their second highest all year (Noul got a 99.1). Now, I'm not sure how they calculate their numbers or how well they actually correlate to a storm's intensity, but that is very impressive indeed.

The reintensification reminded me of TY Fengshen (Frank) when it traversed the Sibuyan Sea before zipping to the north.

Typhoon Utor '06 is another typhoon that intensified within the Philippine Archipelago, and in a similar location and at a similar time of year.

JTWC is forecasting a 130 kt super typhoon at 12Z, which in all likelihood won't verify considering Melor will have just crossed that island, but I guess we'll find out when we get there. I'll readily admit that I'm quite curious how their next discussion will read once it's released.

SUBJ/PROGNOSTIC REASONING FOR TYPHOON 28W (MELOR) WARNING NR 15//
RMKS//
1. FOR METEOROLOGISTS.
2. 6 HOUR SUMMARY AND ANALYSIS.
TYPHOON (TY) 28W (MELOR), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 107 NM SOUTH-
SOUTHEAST OF MANILA, PHILIPPINES, HAS TRACKED WESTWARD AT 7 KNOTS
OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE IMAGERY
(MSI) INDICATES THE TYPHOON IS UNDERGOING RAPID INTENSIFICATION
(RI), AS THE CENTRAL CORE HAS EXPANDED AND A 14 NM DIAMETER EYE HAS
APPEARED. A 142254Z SSMIS 91GHZ MICROWAVE IMAGE REVEALS AN
INPRESSIVE SOLID CONVECTIVE CORE EXTENDING 45-50 NM FROM THE
CENTER. THE INITIAL POSITION IS BASED ON THE MSI EYE WITH HIGH
CONFIDENCE. THE INITIAL INTENSITY AT THE 150000Z SYNOPTIC TIME IS
ASSESSED AT 125 KNOTS, BASED ON THE PGTW T6.5 DVORAK ESTIMATE.
SUBSEQUENT ANALYSIS INDICATES THE CYCLONE FURTHER INTENSIFIED,
HOWEVER, THE LATEST IMAGE SHOWS SIGNS THAT THIS PHASE MAY HAVE
STALLED OR ENDED.TY 28W IS UNDER THE STEERING INFLUENCE OF A DEEP
LAYERED SUBTROPICAL RIDGE (STR) TO THE NORTH.
3. FORECAST REASONING.
A. THE FORECAST INTENSITIES WERE INCREASED DUE TO THE CLEAR
INDICATION OF RI. THE FORECAST TRACK HAS ALSO BEEN MODIFIED AS A
RESULT OF THE INTENSIFICATION, WITH TY 28W NOW EXPECTED TO TRACK
FURTHER WESTWARD BEFORE TRANSITIONING TO LOW LEVEL STEERING FLOW.
THE FORECAST TRACK HAS ALSO BEEN EXTENDED TO 96 HOURS.
B. TY MELOR WILL CONTINUE TO TRACK GENERALLY WESTWARD TO WEST-
NORTHWESTWARD UNDER THE STEERING INFLUENCE OF THE STR OVER THE NEXT
36 HOURS. AFTERWARDS, THE CYCLONE WILL TURN SOUTHWESTWARD WITH THE
LOW LEVEL WIND FLOW IN THE SOUTH CHINA SEA. BASED ON SLIGHT
INTENSIFICATION, NOTED IN THE SATELLITE ANALYSIS, TY 28W IS FORECAST
TO REACH A PEAK OF 130 KNOTS WITHIN THE NEXT 12 HOURS BEFORE
BEGINNING A DISSIPATION TREND. COLD DRY AIR ASSOCIATED WITH A STRONG
CONTINENTAL COLD SURGE IN THE SOUTH CHINA SEA WILL ACCELERATE ITS
DECAY AFTER TAU 36.
C. TY MELOR IS FORECAST TO BECOME FULLY EMBEDDED IN THE COLD SURGE
FLOW AND DISSIPATE BY TAU 96. DUE THE UNCERTAINTY IN THE TIMING OF
STEERING FLOW MECHANISMS, THERE IS LOW CONFIDENCE IN THE JTWC
FORECAST.

RSMC TROPICAL CYCLONE PROGNOSTIC REASONING
REASONING NO. 9 FOR TY 1527 MELOR (1527)
1.GENERAL COMMENTS
REASONING OF PROGNOSIS THIS TIME IS SIMILAR TO PREVIOUS ONE.
POSITION FORECAST IS MAINLY BASED ON NWP AND PERSISTENCY.
2.SYNOPTIC SITUATION
NOTHING PARTICULAR TO EXPLAIN.
3.MOTION FORECAST
POSITION ACCURACY AT 150000 UTC IS GOOD.
TY WILL DECELERATE FOR THE NEXT 24 HOURS THEN ACCELERATE.
TY WILL MOVE WEST FOR THE NEXT 24 HOURS THEN MOVE TO WEST-SOUTHWEST.
4.INTENSITY FORECAST
TY WILL KEEP PRESENT INTENSITY FOR NEXT 24 HOURS.
FI-NUMBER WILL BE 4.5 AFTER 24 HOURS.=

ECMWF nailed this one both in track and intensity forecast. If we were to believe its entire solution, Melor won't be weakening drastically just yet until it starts shooting to the southwest tomorrow..

yeah, Melor doesn't want to make a full-on landfall. With that, the mountains of Mindoro will only have marginal effect...

But, have you seen the latest JTWC forecast track :cheesy: ... they're taking Melor right into the heart of Mindoro(into the mountains) and curiously intensify it to STY just after it cross the coast.
