Typhoon Nock-Ten

What was once Typhoon Tokage is now extratropical and well away from Japan. Unfortunately Tokage claimed the lives of over 60 people in Japan as torrential rains over saturated ground resulted in mudslides. Tokyo reported wind gusts to 55 mph as Tokage passed by. Meanwhile, Typhoon Nock-Ten, with maximum sustained winds of 105 mph, is now west of Guam and moving northwestward and will be closely monitored as it approaches islands in the northwest Pacific Ocean.


Closer to home, there are no imminent tropical threats in either the Atlantic or eastern Pacific Basins. However, an upper-level disturbance is producing areas of heavy showers and thunderstorms across Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands and the Lesser Antilles. Also areas of showers extend eastward across the tropical Atlantic. In the eastern Pacific, a tropical low lurks well southwest of the southern tip of Baja but southwest shear from the Southwest U.S. storm will prevent any development.
