Published: June 3, 2012
7 p.m. Sunday, June 3, Japan time: Typhoon Mawar has edged a bit further east than previous forecasts projected. While that means the winds won’t be quite as fierce for Okinawa, it’ll still be a very windy, gusty Monday evening and early Tuesday morning.
Joint Typhoon Warning Center now forecasts Mawar to rumble 140 miles south-southeast of Okinawa at 6 a.m. Tuesday. Kadena Air Base 18th Wing Weather Flight officials project sustained 46-mph winds and 58-mph gusts between 11 p.m. Monday and 2 a.m. Tuesday at Mawar churns past.
Winds of 34 mph and greater are forecast to begin at 9 a.m. Monday and continue until 6 p.m. Tuesday.
No official word yet of upgrading out of Tropical Cyclone Condition of Readiness 3. A weather flight official said they may wait until morning to make that call.
