DISCUSSION AND 48-HOUR OUTLOOK

At 1100 pm HST, 0900 UTC, the center of tropical storm Unala was located near latitude 17.5 north, longitude 179.6 west. Unala is moving toward the west near 20 mph, 32 km/h, and this general motion is expected to continue for the next 12 to 24 hours.

Maximum sustained winds are near 40 mph, 65 km/h, with higher gusts. Unala is a relatively small and weak tropical storm, which is moving closer to much more intense typhoon Pewa over the northwest Pacific ocean. The interaction between these two tropical cyclones is expected to cause Unala to weaken to a tropical depression within the next 12 hours. Unala is forecast to dissipate within 24 hours.

Tropical storm force winds extend outward up to 60 miles, 95 km from the center.

The estimated minimum central pressure is 1008 mb, 29.77 inches.

None.
