Recommended Posts

Only the western Pacific is active

John Desjardins, Senior Meteorologist, The Weather Channel



As the 2004 hurricane season begins to wind down, there is no significant activity in either the Atlantic or eastern Pacific tropical basins. However, the western Pacific remains quite active. Typhoon Tokage has sustained winds of 130 mph. The typhoon is forecast to weaken over the next several days. However, the forecast track curves the typhoon to the north and northeast and it may impact Japan midweek. Japan has already been hit by a record nine tropical systems this season and does not need another. Farther east, Tropical Storm Nock-Ten is strengthening. Nock-Ten could become a typhoon later today and may impact Guam later this week.
