New tropical storm 26W now named Francisco heading for Japan

    Tropical Depression 26W



    2 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 16, Guam time: A new tropical
    depression has formed just southeast of Guam and is forecast to
    strengthen into a tropical storm sometime Thursday or Friday, hanging
    around Guam long enough to bring yet more heavy rain and high wind, as
    if it hasn't had enough of it in the last month. Several advisories and
    warnings are posted on Guam's National Weather Service Web page.



    26W would be called Francisco if it becomes a named storm, which it
    likely will as it heads northwest toward Japan, as forecast by the Joint
    Typhoon Warning Center. Too early to tell yet exactly where it will
    head, but long-range models are projecting it may follow the same path
    as Wipha did, just off Japan's east coast. PST as always will keep a
    sharp eyeball on it.

  • Guam not out of the woods



    12:30 a.m. Thursday, Oct. 17, Guam time: 26W has
    morphed rapidly into Tropical Storm Francisco, and will hang around Guam
    long enough to cause some heavy rain and wind, but far enough away that
    it doesn’t become a major concern. Still, Guam has had enough rain in
    the last few weeks than it’s had in a similar period in a very long
    time.

     

    Once Francisco picks up forward speed, it’s forecast to travel
    northwest and split the difference between Okinawa and Iwo Jima, likely
    following the same track as Wipha did earlier this week. Too early to
    say definitively, but PST will surely keep a sharp eyeball on things.

     

    Meantime, Guam remains in a tropical storm watch and in Tropical
    Cyclone Condition of Readiness 3, at least through the next day or so.
    Expect heavy rain squalls and wind gusts from the eastern quadrants of
    the still-developing storm. Get supplied up and get your safe on, Guam!
