Tropical Depression 03W formed east of the Philippines on June 6. It intensified into Tropical Storm Yagi on June 8.

The system is currently located approximately 850 km east northeast of Casiguran, Philippines or about 548 nmi (1,015 km; 631 mi) SSE of Kadena, Japan. The center of the storm has become more defined and tightly wrapped. Conditions are favorable for further development as vertical wind shear remains low.

Late on May 23, the JTWC upgraded Sanvu to a category 1 typhoon, for the system became compact and more organized as an eye was forming. After being upgraded to a severe tropical storm by the JMA late on May 24, Sanvu’s eye directly passed over Iō-tō late on May 25.

On May 25, 2012 at 1500 UTC (11 a.m. EDT/U.S.), Typhoon Sanvu had maximum sustained winds near 60 knots (69 mph/111 kph), slightly weaker than it was on May 24. Typhoon-force winds cover a compact area, extending 25 miles (40 km) from the center, while tropical storm-force winds extend as far as 150 miles (241.4 km) from the center, making the storm over 300 miles (~483 km) in diameter.

Sanvu’s center was located near 23.9 North and 140.3 East, only 100 nautical miles (115 miles/185 km) southwest of Iwo To, Japan and moving to the north-northeast at 7 knots (8 mph/13 kph). Sanvu continues to churn up rough seas, and the Joint Typhoon Warning Center reported that wave heights in the region are as high as 31 feet (9.4 meters).
