The first typhoon event for Asia is already here - just a bit earlier than I expected.
iOS8 is no longer compatible with Weatherzone
I cannot paste any links

TY1501 (MEKKHALA) was 965HPa at the last JMA update
landfall at the Central Philippines is imminent

Certainly an active start to the season for the north west Pacific. Hopefully the Phillipines doesn't cop too much this season.

Now a Cat 5 supertyphoon. This marks the earliest start to the season for the basin on record (there's already been two other typhoons in the region so far this year). Impressive even by NW Pacific standards.

The JTWC is currently forecasting max wind gusts near Maysak's centre may peak over 350km/hr later tomorrow.

Here's today's MODIS imagery clearly showing the pinhole eye:

What a beast. Thankfully it is forecast to run into shear before hitting the Philippines. Earlier model runs had it missing completely.

Very worrying to see this intensity so early in the year - it could indicate that we are heading into a very active typhoon season. Haven't decided if I am looking forward to summer yet...

Poor Philippines. Hopefully it weakens before impact. Stunning looking system though.

Really spectacular photos of Maysak's eye taken by astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti from the International Space Station on her twitter feed:

The eye looks enormous. I can imagine it did some pretty serious damage to those micronesian islands it hit.

Very unusual to see anything like this in the Philippines at this time of year. It is usually bone dry apart from the occasional thunderstorm. My wife and I will be over there in Northern Luzon in a months time so hopefully it won't do too much damage.

Tropical Storm Noul looks like it could get close to, or reach supertyphoon status by this weekend as it heads towards the northern Philippines. Latest track spread from the EC ensemble out to 10 days:

JMA link for 3-day forecast:
http://www.jma.go.jp/en/typh/1506c.html

Unlikely to make it to Category 5 and should rapidly weaken after closest approach to the Philippines (theoretically there could be no landfall)
