Tropical Cyclone 06P (Ula) remains active in the southwestern Pacific…now on a weakening trend

Here’s a satellite image of this tropical cyclone…along with what the computer models are showing

This TC was located about 256 NM south of Suva, Fiji…and has been moving southwestward at 04 knots.

According to the Joint Typhoon Warning Center (JTWC), satellite imagery shows deep convection within the northern half of the system has diminished, under the influence of moderate 20-25 knots of wind shear.

In addition to this wind shear, TC Ula is also passing over marginal sea surface temperatures in the vicinity of the center.

TC 06P is expected to track westward, with those unfavorable environmental conditions described above, plus dry air entrainment into the system.

The cyclone is forecast to meet dissipation within 96 hours, and remain over the ocean away from islands in the process.

Maximum surface winds at the JTWC advisory #11 were 70 knots…with gusts to 85 knots
