Track of TS 23W

Tropical Storm Maria (23W), located approximately 820 nm north-northwest of Wake Island, has tracked eastward at 10 knots over the past six hours.

Animated infrared satellite imagery depicts an elongated, defined low-level circulation center (LLCC) with no associated deep convection. Recent visible imagery showed that the LLCC was predominantly characterized by stratocumulus. Recent microwave imagery indicated dry air enveloping the entire system as well poorly-defined low-level banding.

The initial intensity is based on objective intensity estimates of 26 knots and recent SSMIS wind estimates of 20 to 25 knots. Based on the slowly weakening LLCC and marginal upper-level environment as well as cool sst (24-25c), td 23w is forecast to dissipate within the next 12 hours while tracking eastward. Maximum significant wave height is 12 feet.

Track of Typhoon 23W

Tropical Storm Maria (23W), located approximately 575 nm east-southeast of Tokyo, Japan, has tracked east-northeastward at 20 knots over the past six hours. Maximum significant wave height is 15 feet. Here, the system can be seen southeast of Japan (visible at the top edge) and northeast of Typhoon Prapiroon (22W) (visible in the lower left corner).

Typhoon Prapiroon (22W) – October 14th, 2012

This image shows a double treat: the pair of tropical cyclones Typhoon Prapiroon (left) and Tropical Storm Maria (right).

Typhoon Prapiroon (22W), located approximately 185 nm south-southeast of Kadena Air Base, Okinawa, Japan, has tracked north-northwestward at 06 knots over the past six hours. Maximum significant wave height is 30 feet.

Tropical Storm Maria (23W), located approximately 275 nm north-northeast of Iwo To, Japan, has tracked east-northeastward at 11 knots over the past six hours. Maximum significant wave height is 22 feet.
