Mawar, a Strong Typhoon moving away from Luzon
Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 3 June, 2012 : - - As of Sunday morning, EDT, the center of Tropical Storm Mawar (04W) was located near 19.7N, 125.6E, or slightly to the northeast of Luzon Island in the Philippines. The storm is packing 110-mph sustained winds with gusts to 115 mph. Mawar is pulling away from Luzon and will continue on a north-northeastward path over the next 24-36 hours before beginning to accelerate to the northeast as the system is picked up by a midlatitude trough.
Mawar is expected to brush the Ryukyu Islands south of Japan as it passes by just to the east. This will bring strong winds and heavy rainfall to the islands early in the coming week; however, the worst of the storm should pass just to the east of the islands. A trough across eastern China is expected to continue steering Mawar in a northeastward direction which should cause the storm to pass just east of Japan, but it will be a near miss and the effects from the storm are possible across Japan during the middle of the week with the outer rain bands affecting the nation from Tuesday into Wednesday, EDT.
