Dolphin is becoming harder to discern on satellite. Latest image above shows the system becoming more elongated and with convection diminishing in coverage and intensity. The circulation center is starting to unravel and the system as a whole is losing tropical characteristics.
Tropical Storm Dolphin will continue moving northeastward across the Northern Pacific and should eventually become an extra-tropical cyclone. This will be our final update on Dolphin. The rest of the Western Pacific is free from tropical cyclones and we are not seeing any potential development in the next few days.
