Storms and Floods

Tropical Storms

In the Western Pacific:

Typhoon Krosa is approaching the northern Philippines with its heavy rain and flood/mudslide threat and strong, gusty winds. Still looks like a track thereafter toward a position over or near Hainan Island of extreme southern China.

In the Eastern Pacific:

Raymond is finally done but mid-upper level moisture from what’s left of it continues flowing into the system affecting the central U.S.

A new system is organising southeast of Raymond’s remnants and could become a tropical depression or storm during the next few days and eventually head toward Mexico rather than out to sea … or at least be another system to send some moisture northeastward, a little of which is already happening.
