TS Haikui Update August 4, 2012

Here is our latest update on Tropical Storm Haikui which is now nearing the Japanese Islands. The system was last located 460km east southeast of Okinawa and could begin affecting the region as early as tonight with squalls of rain showers moving from the east. Conditions in Okinawa, Amami, and the surrounding islands could deteriorate tonight with stormy weather lasting throughout the weekend. As always, please begin making preparations now (if you haven’t done so already) and continue monitoring the developments of the system on the news or on the net.

Kadena is already at TCCOR 3 and JMA has issued High Waves and Heavy Rain Warnings for Okianawa, Amami, Daito, and the rest of the islands in Southern Japan.

Rest of the video looks at the huge mass of cloud formation in the Western Pacific and how it could spawn more cyclones next week. We also briefly take a look at the remnants of Saola (Formerly Bagyong Gener) moving across Southern China; and also the continuous effects of the Southwest Monsoon (Habagat) in the Philippines. Finally, we give a shout out at the Atlantic Basin where two cyclones have formed–check out our affiliate for updates on those.
