Tropical Storms 22W and 23W (Danas) – October 6th, 2013

Typhoon Danas is forecast to strike Japan at about 18:00 GMT on 8 October. Data supplied by the US Navy and Air Force Joint Typhoon Warning Center suggest that the point of landfall will be near 35.2 N, 132.3 E. Danas is expected to bring 1-minute maximum sustained winds to the region of around 120 km/h (74 mph). Wind gusts in the area may be considerably higher.

Track of TC 03W

Tropical Storm Yagi (03W) is quickly dissipating while under an unfavorable upper level environment as well as tracking over cool sea surface temperatures (22 degrees Celsius).

An upper level low to the north of the system has moved south amplifying a region of subsidence over the low level circulation center (LLCC). A scatterometry pass indicates 20 knot winds surrounding the fully exposed LLCC.
