All forecast tracks run almost parallel. The different latitudes are due to the parameter weights of the low and high pressure areas over continental China.

At this very moment it is still difficult to determine a general behavior because weak low pressure areas can change their direction very quickly. This is well visible in the beginning of the track below.
