Tropical Storm Trami Update #11 (FINAL)

Issued (12 UTC) 8pm PhT 082213

Tropical Storm Trami continues to significantly weaken as it moves into the province of Jiangxi in Southern China. Trami was last located approximately 260km south of Nanchang. Maximum sustained winds are at 75kph with gusts of up to 95kph. Trami is currently moving west northwestward at 20kph.

Latest satellite image shows Trami's circulation remains pretty intact with good convection still forming near the center. However, the core is definitely taking a beating and we expect continued weakening over the next few hours.

Radar from CMA

Latest radar from Jiangxi shows the extent of widespread light to moderate rains affecting the region. Many areas across Fujian and Jiangxi Province have reported 100 to 200mm of rain causing some in some areas. We expect another 100mm to fall tonight along the path of Trami.

Dissipation of Trami should occur by tomorrow as it moves into Jiangxi and Hunan Provinces. However, rains could linger over the region for a few more days.

This will be our final update on Tropical Storm Trami. The other tropical cyclone in the region--Tropical Storm Pewa--remains weak as it moves near Wake Island. Closer to Asia, a weak low pressure area has been spotted in the Philippine Sea and could slowly develop over the next three days.
