Bolaven (16W) Transitions to Extratropical Storm39.7N 126.7E
Although the still images show the system at greater strength, Tropical Storm Bolaven (16W), has now fully transitioned to an extratropical storm, as is evident in the animated imagery.
It is located approximately 350 nm north of Seoul, South Korea, and has tracked north-northeastward at 29 knots. Over the past six hours. the storm has become fully embedded within the baroclinic zone as it has tracked over land.
There is a noticeable dry slot in animated water vapor satellite imagery, with convection moving to the periphery of the storm, and increasing translation speeds, all indicative of a storm that has become an extratropical system.
