Tropical Storm 14W (Nanmadol), # 1

PST is keeping an eyeball on a tropical storm south of Okinawa, and a developing disturbance off of Guam that could combine to make Okinawa’s weather at the start of the week wet and windy.

At this point, the Joint Typhoon Warning Center has Tropical Storm Nanmadol passing some 325 miles southeast of Kadena Air Base at 9 a.m. Monday, packing 98-mph sustained winds and 121-mph gusts at its center.

But the disturbance spawning some 230 miles northwest of Andersen Air Force Base, though not forecast to track over the Marianas, could have some effect on Nanmadol’s movement, possibly causing it to nudge closer to Okinawa, officials at Kadena’s 18th Wing Weather Flight said.

Heavy rain, winds gusting up to 30 mph and high surf are forecast for Guam through Thursday.

PST will keep an eye on things.
