Track of TY 26W

Tropical Depression Bopha (TD 26W) located approximately 240 nm north-northwest of Manila, Philippines, has tracked northeastward at 03 knots over the past six hours. Maximum significant wave height is 20 feet.

The system has rapidly dissipated due to strong (40-50 knots) westerly vertical wind shear. It has winds of approximately 35 knots associated with a northeasterly monsoon surge, and winds of 25 knots or less directly
associated with the low level circulation. The system will dissipate within 24 hours.
