Typhoon NORU Threatens Japan

AUGUST 1, 2017, TUESDAY 

Typhoon NORU lay about 1100 kilometres SSE of the southern coast of Japan in north west Pacific Ocean.

It is a category 3 hurricane presently. It intensified to a super typhoon yesterday but weakened a little as it has a patch of drier air. But as it nears the moist air near the Japanese coast an intensification is imminent again.

Most forecast models predict a hit on southern Japan on August 6-7.

The GFS model envisages a storm with a central minimum pressure of below 900 hPa before impact. With wind speed in excess of 220 km/h, gusts upto 260 km/h.
