Tropical Storm 27W remains active, moving by not far south and southwest of Guam…and then on generally towards Japan

The Joint Typhoon Warning Center reports that satellite images show a broad area of deep disorganized convection struggling to wrap into the low level circulation center.

Upper level analysis shows improvement over the past 6-hours, due to a decrease in easterly flow. Meanwhile, wind shear is diminishing into the marginal to favorable category. Sea surface temperatures in the region are also very warm.

This storm will continue to strengthen over the next 24-36 hours, which will accelerate 27W towards the northwest…reaching a peak intensity of 90 knots by 72 hours. Beyond 72 hours wind shear will increase, leading to a weakening trend…with the (then typhoon) staying south of Japan.

Maximum sustained winds as of JTWC Warning #16 sustained winds were 40 knots with gusts of 50 knots.

The Atlantic Ocean is quiet in terms of possible tropical cyclone development, although an area of warm water (1-3 degrees above normal for this time of year) in the western Caribbean…may become active in terms of tropical cyclone development later this week.

The area is in an oceanic region where tropical cyclones have been known to develop during the late October and November time frame.

Areas from Central America and Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula to Cuba, the Florida Peninsula, the Bahamas, Hispaniola and Puerto Rico should monitor tropical weather conditions this week.

Caribbean Sea

1.) A broad area of low pressure is expected to form over the western Caribbean Sea during the next few days.

Slow development of this system is possible thereafter while it moves northwestward to northward.

* Formation chance through 48 hours…low…near 0 percent
* Formation chance through 5 days…medium…40 percent
