Track of TD 22W

Tropical Depression Nalgae (22W), located approximately 180 nautical miles southeast of Hanoi, Vietnam, has tracked southwest at 6
knots over the past six hours.

Maximum significant wave height is 14 feet. Since passing the Philippines, the system has posed a threat to Vietnam and southeastern China.

On October 3, the National Marine Environmental Forecasting Center of China upgraded the rainstorm alert for Typhoon Nalgae to the orange level, the second-highest alert level in the country’s four-level rainstorm alert system, reporting that a number of tidal stations off the provinces of Hainan, Guangdong and Fujian would experience tides beyond the ordinary safety levels.

According to the agency, Nalgae, the third tropical cyclone to have affected the region in a short span of just 10 days, can bring about many problems, as strong winds and heavy rain had caused severe damage to some water projects in those regions and consumed large quantities of flood control materials.

Typhoon Nalgae (22W),
(PAGASA name: Quiel) is an active tropical cyclone that affected the Philippines and poses a threat to Hainan, China and later Vietnam. Nalgae was the ninth typhoon and the fourth super typhoon in 2011.

The system has since weakened to a tropical storm, and is currently located approximately 495 nm east-southeast of Hanoi, Vietnam, has tracked west-northwestward at 07 knots over the past six hours. Maximum significant wave height is 25 feet.

Track of TS 20W

Tropical Storm Nesat (20W), located approximately 25 nm north-northeast of Hanoi, Vietnam, has tracked west-northwestward at 07 knots over the past six hours.

Animated infrared satellite imagery depicts rapidly decaying deep convection due to land interaction.
However, an SSMIS image continues to depict a well-defined, but shallow low-level circulation center (LLCC).

The current intensity is assessed at 45 knots. Sustained surface winds reported at Hanoi are only 10-15 knots with SLP near 1004 mb.

TS 20W is forecast to continue tracking west-northwestward and should dissipate between TAU 12 and TAU 24. This track is supported by the dynamic model guidance. The system will be closely monitored for signs of regeneration.
