Maysak Becomes Season’s First Super Typhoon

Maysak Becomes Season’s First Super Typhoon

A few days ago a post was made on Tropical Storm Maysak and the potential it posed to make it to Super Typhoon status. Yesterday that milestone was reached when Maysak was assigned Super Typhoon status and at the time of publication was moving WNW with 160mph / 260km/h (1-minute average) winds.  Maysak is forecast by some agencies to continue to strengthen over the next 24 hours, before encountering less favourable conditions and begin its weakening trend.

Since the initial post, the forecast path of the storm has moved a bit further west and looks like landfall may be possible around the end of the forecast period. However, given the conditions to the west, even if landfall is made – it shouldn’t be that damaging. With that said however, the storm has already caused devestation in the Micronesian island of Chuuk, causing at least 5 fatalities.

Super Typhoon Maysak is truly a beautiful storm and has many trackers watching its every move and collecting satellite images of what can only be described as a picture perfect storm. It has a solid core, as can be expected with any storm that makes it to super typhoon status, as well as a mostly clear and well defined eye with stadium effect clearly visible.
