This is the only difference this year has with 1997. Far western Pacific (including South China Sea) sure is boiling hot. It almost seems like the whole Pacific from west to east is on fire due to this El Nino.

Interestingly the JTWC lowered its intensity forecast, down to 100kts. Graphics not updated yet.

SUBJ/PROGNOSTIC REASONING FOR TROPICAL STORM 24W (KOPPU) WARNING
NR 05//
RMKS//
1. FOR METEOROLOGISTS.
2. 6 HOUR SUMMARY AND ANALYSIS.
TROPICAL STORM (TS) 24W (KOPPU), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 877 NM EAST
OF MANILA, PHILIPPINES, HAS TRACKED WESTWARD AT 16 KNOTS OVER THE
PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE IMAGERY (MSI) SHOWS
THE LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC) HAS BECOME PARTIALLY EXPOSED
FROM A DEEPENING CENTRAL DENSE OVERCAST FEATURE. THE INITIAL POSITION
LINES UP WELL WITH THE LLCC FEATURE IN THE 132212Z SSMI-S MICROWAVE
PASS. THE INITIAL INTENSITY OF 45 KNOTS IS HELD SLIGHTLY HIGHER THAN
AGENCY DVORAK ESTIMATES TO REFLECT THE DEEPENED STATE OF THE CYCLONE.
UPPER LEVEL ANALYSIS INDICATES A MARGINALLY-FAVORABLE ENVIRONMENT
WITH AN ANTICYCLONE JUST NORTH OF THE SYSTEM, PROVIDING STRONG
DIVERGENT OUTFLOW. HOWEVER, MODERATE (15-20 KNOT) NORTHEASTERLY
VERTICAL WIND SHEAR (VWS) IS PREVENTING FASTER INTENSIFICATION. SEA
SURFACE TEMPERATURES (SSTS) ARE NEAR 30 CELSIUS. TS 24W IS TRACKING
ALONG THE SOUTHERN PERIPHERY OF THE DEEP-LAYERED SUBTROPICAL RIDGE
(STR) TO THE NORTH.
3. FORECAST REASONING.
A. NO CHANGE TO FORECAST PHILOSOPHY SINCE THE PREVIOUS PROGNOSTIC
REASONING MESSAGE.
B. TS 24W WILL CONTINUE TO TRACK WESTWARD THROUGH THE REMAINDER
OF THE FORECAST PERIOD UNDER THE STEERING INFLUENCE OF THE STR.
EXPECT SLOW INTENSIFICATION OVER THE NEXT 48 HOURS AS VWS CONTINUES
TO HINDER DEVELOPMENT. BEYOND TAU 48, VWS WILL RELAX AS THE UPPER
LEVEL WIND FLOW BECOMES MORE IN-PHASE WITH THE STORM MOTION.
ADDITIONALLY, SSTS WILL INCREASE ABOVE 30 CELSIUS. THESE WILL SUPPORT
AN INCREASED RATE OF INTENSIFICATION AS THE SYSTEM APPROACHES LUZON.
C. IN THE EXTENDED FORECAST, TS KOPPU WILL CONTINUE ON A WESTWARD
TRACK AS THE STR REMAINS THE DOMINANT STEERING MECHANISM. THE STORM
WILL SLOW AS IT REACHES THE WESTERN EXTENT OF THE STR AND UNDERGO A
RAPID INTENSIFICATION (RI) DUE TO THE FAVORABLE ENVIRONMENTAL
CONDITIONS, IN ADDITION TO INCREASED POLEWARD OUTFLOW AT THE EDGE OF
THE STR. THE RI WILL PEAK THE SYSTEM TO 120 KNOTS - POSSIBLY STRONGER
- RIGHT BEFORE LANDFALL INTO LUZON AT TAU 90. DYNAMIC MODEL GUIDANCE
IS IN GOOD AGREEMENT ON THE OVERALL TRACK; HOWEVER, A BIFURCATION
REMAINS AT THE END OF THE FORECAST PERIOD WHEN THE CYCLONE NEARS
LUZON. DUE TO THIS, THERE IS HIGH CONFIDENCE IN THE JTWC TRACK
FORECAST ONLY UP TO TAU 72.//

During the next 24 hours, it's going to pass over a hotspot and OHC above 75 until Luzon. Wonder if this will help in intensifying faster if shear lessens.

If you note the prognostic reasoning they predict peak of 120kts if not higher between the 100kts position and landfall.

JMA also forecast a 25kts increase from 65kts to 90kts between 48-72 hours. Such a rapid intensification forecast is pretty rare from them.

Keep in mind if the shear backs away like forecast, the storm will develop excellent outflow.

The center is still exposed, but not as badly as it was earlier. Looks like it might have sunk back to the SW a little bit towards the convection. The convection is also scooting a little bit back up to the north.

ECMWF continues to trend westward at 12Z, indicating a landfall near the southern coast of China. Meanwhile GFS is still indicating a sharp recurve scenario.

Track more south. JTWC 21:00 UTC warning at 45kts.Landfall at Luzon probability is increasing but the question is how strong and how fast it moves as that factor will determine how much of the effects will Luzon have.The main thing for those living in NorthCentral Luzon at this point is to be preparing for a hit of a fairly strong Typhoon.
