3 ugly guys around here – Tropical Storms everywhere
3 less or more strong storms are currently whirling over the North-West Pacific. Nearest one is Tropical Storm LINFA/Egay, moving late tomorrow or early Monday morning over most northern Luzon and the Batanes Group of Islands.
Tropical Storm LINFA/Egay is hovering around over the Western-Central Philippine Sea and is moving northwest at 11 km/h. IMA predicts an increased strength, so the storm may become a Severe Tropical Storm before reaching the Philippines coast.
More to the east Tropical Storm CHAN-HOM is strengtening in should become a typhoon cat.1 tonight. This cyclone should not become a threat for the Philipines. Currently it is still unstable, but once it will be organized it will quickly move on a north-western track and move towards Okinawa.
The 3rd cyclone is still far away. Tropical Storm NANGKA is around 170° East and 10° North. Its current position does not fit in the standard map. It also has the potential to become a typhoon but it isn’t to expect that it will reach the Philippines.
