Tropical cyclone Sinlaku is now a typhoon, with sustained winds of 65kts. Further intensification, perhaps rapid, is expected to due low shear, hot sea temps and enhanced outflow for the next few days.
Sinlaku has been moving slowly northwards since yesterday and this motion is expected to continue for the next 48-72hrs, before a turn to the northeast is forcast. When this occurs, shear will increase and sea temps fall, which will induce extra-tropical transition according to the JTWC (Joint Typhoon Warning Center).
JTWC currently predicting a peak of 110kts, though Sinlaku may well go higher than that.
