Typhoon NOCK-TEN approaching Taiwan


Recommended Posts

Pacific Typhoon Nock-Ten

6:55 p.m. ET ET Fri.,Oct.22,2004


Tom Moore, Sr. Meteorologist, The Weather Channel



Typhoon Nock-Ten with maximum sustained winds of 115 mph is now well west of Guam and moving northwestward. This typhoon will be closely monitored as it approaches Taiwan and then the southern most islands of Japan 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 the Virgin Islands and the Lesser Antilles. Also areas of showers extend eastward across the tropical Atlantic. In the eastern Pacific, two tropical lows, one south-southwest of the southern tip of Baja and a second well south-southeast of southernmost Baja, show increased thunderstorm activity. The low south-southwest of Cabo San Lucas appears to be fairly well organized for the moment at least but is being ventilated by shearing winds aloft which are also bringing the moisture in over western Mexico. Moisture from this system could enhance showers and thunderstorms in Arizona and New Mexico by Sunday night and Monday.
