FORECAST DISCUSSION 

 

Mitag has really been struggling recently under a high shear environment. There is an exposed center, and all satellite estimates point toward a probably generous 60 knots for this advisory. Mitag is forecast to strike South Korea in around 24-36 hours as a weak to minimal tropical storm. Heavy rainfall should be the main threat there. Along the coast of China, high winds associated with the outer bands and near the center along the extreme edges of the coastline should be the main threats.
