REMARKS:
110300Z POSITION NEAR 24.8N 117.6E.
11AUG20. TYPHOON 07W (MEKKHALA), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 216 NM
WEST-SOUTHWEST OF TAIPEI, TAIWAN, HAS TRACKED NORTH-NORTHWESTWARD
AT 13 KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE 
IMAGERY SHOWS THAT TYPHOON MEKKHALA IS QUICKLY BECOMING SHEARED, WITH 
THE OUTER LOW LEVEL BANDS ON THE NORTH SIDE OF THE SYSTEM NOW 
EXPOSED, BUT WITH DEEP CONVECTION REMAINING IN PLACE OVER AND SOUTH 
OF THE ASSESSED CENTER. THE INITIAL POSITION IS PLACED WITH HIGH 
CONFIDENCE BASED ON COMPOSITE CHINESE RADAR DATA. A REASSESSMENT OF 
EARLIER INTENSITY ESTIMATES HAS LED TO AN INCREASE IN THE INITIAL 
INTENSITY AT THE 101800Z POSITION TO 65 KNOTS BASED ON AMSR2 
WINDSPEED ESTIMATE OF 64 KNOTS AT 1743Z. A SUBSEQUENT 102100Z 
INTERMEDIATE POSITION INTENSITY HAS ALSO BEEN INCREASED TO 70 KNOTS 
BASED ON BUOY DATA REPORTING A 10-MIN AVERAGE WIND OF 63 KNOTS, WHICH 
EQUATES TO A 69 KNOTS 1-MIN AVERAGE. TYPHOON 07W MADE LANDFALL ALONG 
THE CHINESE COAST AROUND 2200Z AND IS NOW MOVING FURTHER INLAND. THE 
SYSTEM IS FORECAST TO CONTINUE TRACKING NORTHWARD WHILE WEAKENING, 
FULLY DISSIPATING OVERLAND BY TAU 36. DYNAMIC MODEL GUIDANCE IS IN 
TIGHT AGREEMENT, LENDING HIGH CONFIDENCE TO THE JTWC TRACK. THIS IS 
THE FINAL WARNING ON THIS SYSTEM BY THE JOINT TYPHOON WRNCEN PEARL 
HARBOR HI. THE SYSTEM WILL BE CLOSELY MONITORED FOR SIGNS OF 
REGENERATION. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 110000Z IS 15 FEET. 
REFER TO TROPICAL CYCLONE 05W (JANGMI) WARNINGS (WTPN31 PGTW) FOR 
SIX-HOURLY UPDATES. REFER TO TROPICAL DEPRESSION 06W (SIX) WARNINGS 
(WTPN32 PGTW) FOR SIX-HOURLY UPDATES.//
