Tropical Storm 22W (Fitow), # 5: Okinawa bound - Pacific Storm Tracker - Stripes

Looks like it’s going to happen. Tropical Storm Fitow’s forecast track takes it 33 miles east of Kadena Air Base and through the heart of Okinawa early Saturday as a Category 3-equivalent typhoon, making for a wild, windy weekend.

U.S. bases on Okinawa remain in Tropical Cyclone Condition of Readiness 4 for now; that will probably change early Thursday morning.

Much-needed rain will accompany Fitow, 7 to 10 inches projected by Kadena’s 18th Wing Weather Flight.

Comment: Baton down the hatches!?

As of a few minutes ago 07:30 JST, Local weather has it tracking well to the south of us between Okinawa Honto and the Miyako island group. Of course that's a big change from just 12 hours ago and that could change again in a big way over the next 12 hours so stay tuned! AlGore's not through punishing us for not electing him a demigod in 2000 yet.
