Tropical Storm Man-Yi Update #6 (FINAL)

Issued (1130 UTC) 730pm PhT 091613

Tropical Storm Man-Yi continues to rapidly weaken as it moves into the North Pacific. The storm was last located approximately 900km northeast of Tokyo, Japan. Maximum sustained winds are now down to 95kph with gusts of up to 120kph. TS Man-Yi is moving northeastward at 60kph.

Latest satellite image shows Man-Yi continuing to weaken with little convection remaining near the center as dry air gets more entrained into the circulation. Winds and rains are still impacting Hokkaido, however, and will probably continue through the next few hours.

Man-Yi is also undergoing extra-tropical transition and should complete the process by tomorrow. Rains and strong winds should also end across Hokkaido by tomorrow morning. This will be our final update for Man-Yi. A Tropical Disturbance is being tracked just east of the Philippines. This LPA is forecast to become a cyclone in the next 24 hours. We'll have an update on this developing system tomorrow morning.
