Two typhoons, one tropical storm, one formation alert and one large area of increased convection is making for a busy day in the northern Pacific Ocean. From left to right: Tropical Storm Linfa is in the South China Sea meandering slowly northward with winds holding steady near 55 knots. A turn to the west toward land is expected during July 8. Typhoon Chan-Hom has winds near 100 knots and strengthening, heading west-northwest toward the East China Sea, passing south of Okinawa around July 9. Typhoon Nangka is east of Guam heading west-northwest with winds intensifying near 140 knots in a couple of days. The large area of convection southwest of Hawaii is not expected at this time to develop into a tropical system, despite its satellite presentation. To the far east of this image can be seen the Hawaiian Islands; to the southeast of the Islands an area of convection is consolidating, and the Joint Typhoon Warning Center states, "Formation of a significant tropical cyclone is possible...within the next 12 to 24 hours." This image was taken by the JMA MTSAT-2 satellite at 0230Z on July 7, 2015.
