Track of TS 17W

Tropical Storm Kulap (17W), located approximately 500 nautical miles east-southeast of Kadena Air Base, Okinawa, has tracked north-northeastward at 07 knots over the past six hours.

Maximum sustained winds are between 50 and 55 mph. Maximum significant wave height is 12 feet.

Strengthening is likely during the two days with movement becoming northwesterly or even westerly. The system could threaten Okinawa and the neighboring Ryukyu Islands late in the week, as a tropical storm or even a typhoon by Saturday.
