Tropical Storm Haikui

Tropical Storm Haikui (12W), located approximately 95 nm south of
Shanghai, China, has tracked northwestward at 09 knots over the past six hours. Animated multispectral satellite imagery and radar imagery indicate that TS 12W made landfall around 07/20z and has continued to track slowly inland while weakening slightly.

Prior to making landfall, surface observations showed maximum sustained winds of 64 to 70 knots with minimum slp near 970 mb. The initial intensity is based on Dvorak estimates ranging from 55 to 65 knots.

TS 12W is forecast to continue tracking west-northwestward to northwestward through the period and will dissipate over land by TAU 36. After tau 48, there is a low probability of the remnants tracking back over the east china sea; however, regeneration as a tropical cyclone is unlikely due to midlatitude westerlies strengthening over the East China Sea.
