Super Typhoon Surigae


Super Typhoon Surigae, in the far west Pacific, is forecast to turn to the north, just brushing the Philippines. Above is IR image of the storm from 12 UTC and below is visible image from 1730 UTC. At bottom is 15 UTC forecast for the storm from the Joint Typhoon Warning Center in Hawaii. At 15 UTC the storm was indicated to have winds of 155 kt (178 mph) with gusts to 190 kt (219 mph) - a very powerful storm that would rate as a strong Cat 5 hurricane in our part of the globe.
