Track of TD 15W

Tropical Depression Talas (15W), located approximately 200 nm northeast of Iwakuni, Japan, has tracked just east of northward at 13 knots over the past six hours. Maximum significant wave height is 12 feet.

Animated infrated satellite imagery indicates central convection has significantly eroded and displaced northeast-ward as the system became exposed to very strong (40-60 kt) vertical wind shear associated with a mid-latitude trough digging in from the northwest. The low level circulation center has become distorted and difficult to pinpoint.

Talas is now embedded in the baroclinic zone in the colder waters of the sea of Japan. It is expected to become extra-tropical by TAU 12. The system is also expected to weaken significantly in view of the harsh environmental conditions, however it will be closely monitored for signs of regeneration.

Track of TS 15W

Typhoon Talas (15W), located approximately 510 nautical miles south-southeast of Tokyo, Japan, has tracked west-northwestward at 07
knots over the past six hours. Maximum significant wave height is 38 feet.

The animated imagery shows the recent track of the system, while the main and enhanced images show it a few days ago, as it was increasing in strength from a tropical storm to a typhoon. By August 25, the system had grown strong enough that the JMA upgraded it to a tropical storm, naming it Talas.  Later that day, the JTWC followed suit and initiated advisories on Talas.  Talas continued to strengthen and by midnight that day, it became a severe tropical storm. Over the next few days, Talas continued to drift north very slowly until late on August 29, when the JMA upgraded Talas to a typhoon.
