Recommended Posts

Only active in the western Pacific

John Desjardins, Senior Meteorologist, The Weather Channel



The Atlantic and eastern Pacific are devoid of any significant tropical activity this evening and look to remain quiet over the next several days. Meanwhile, two typhoons are spinning in the western Pacific. The more imminent threat is Typhoon Tokage with sustained winds over 100 mph. This typhoon could be the tenth tropical cyclone to impact Japan as it approaches the island chain over the next 24-36 hours. The good news is that Tokage is a weakening typhoon and would likely not do much damage. Meanwhile, Typhoon Nock-Ten is a strengthening typhoon with winds approaching 100 mph. The typhoon will pass just south of Guam within the next couple of days. The forecast calls for gradual strengthening over the next couple of days followed by a weakening trend as the typhoon continues on a northwesterly track.
