PhysOrg, Sept. 28: NASA sees super Typhoon Jelawat Affecting Japan [...] Super Typhoon Jelawat is a large and powerful storm that has been bringing very rough seas to areas in the western North Pacific. NASA’s Terra satellite passed over the monster storm and captured a visible image as it nears the big island of Japan [See Bottom].
Dr. Jeff Masters’ WunderBlog, Sept. 28: The models are in close agreement that Jelawat will pass over or very close to Okinawa, Japan, as a Category 2 or 3 typhoon on Saturday, between 03 – 06 UTC. Jelawat could hit the main island of Honshu in Japan as a tropical storm or Category 1 typhoon on Sunday.
