CURRENT TROPICAL CYCLONES

Tropical Cyclone 22W (Soulik) is located about 190 NM southwest of Sasebo, Japan

Tropical Cyclone 23W (Cimaron) is located about 142 NM west-southwest of Iwo To, Japan

Tropical Cyclone 14E (Lane) is located about 350 miles south-southeast of Kailua-kona, Hawaii

 

 

http://www.ssd.noaa.gov/PS/TROP/floaters/22W/imagery/vis0-lalo.gif

Tropical Cyclone 22W (Soulik) will maintain its strength for the time being as a Typhoon…and then gradually diminish 

Here’s what the computer models are showing for this system

According to the JTWC, the center of TC 22W will be moving by to the south and west of the southern Japanese Islands, and then on towards an impact over the west side of South Korea near Seoul…and northward into North Korea

Tropical Cyclone 23W (Cimaron) will continue strengthening a bit more…and has become a Typhoon 

Here’s what the computer models are showing for this system

According to the JTWC, TC 23W will move by close to or over Iwo To…and eventually on into the Japanese Islands near Kyoto

Tropical Cyclone 14E (Lane) is now a Category 5 hurricane and continues moving towards the west-northwest…although is expected to make a turn towards the Hawaiian Islands

Here’s what the computer models are showing for this Hurricane

Hurricane Lane will likely bring dangerously high surf conditions in the Hawaiian Islands, and there could be other impacts to the state, such as heavy rain and wind…depending on its exact future path this week.

According to the CPHC…Lane is moving toward the west-northwest near 9 mph and this motion is expected to continue tonight. A turn toward the northwest is expected on Wednesday, followed by a turn to the north-northwest on Thursday. On the forecast track, the center of Lane will move very close to or over the main Hawaiian Islands Thursday through Saturday.

Maximum sustained winds are near 160 mph with higher gusts. Slow weakening is forecast during the next 48 hours, but Lane is forecast to remain a dangerous hurricane as it draws closer to the Hawaiian Islands.

Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 40 miles from the center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 140 miles.

HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND –

WIND: Tropical storm conditions are expected within the Hurricane Warning area beginning late Wednesday night into early Thursday morning, with hurricane conditions expected somewhere within the warning area on Thursday. Tropical storm conditions are possible within the Hurricane Watch area beginning Thursday into Thursday night, with hurricane conditions possible late Thursday night into Friday.

RAINFALL: Excessive rainfall associated with Lane is expected to affect portions of the Hawaiian Islands from late Wednesday into the weekend, leading to flash flooding and landslides. Lane is expected to produce total rain accumulations of 10 to 15 inches with isolated amounts greater than 20 inches over the Hawaiian Islands.

SURF: Large swells generated by Lane will impact the Hawaiian Islands, beginning tonight on the Big Island, spreading across the remainder of the island chain on Wednesday. These swells will produce large and potentially damaging surf along exposed west, south and east facing shorelines.
