Meari now heading for China

Meari continues to move off to the north, but has not strengthened the way forecast models initial expected. Currently the storm is a Severe Tropical Storm, with winds just over 50 mph (80 km/h). The significant part of this storm will be the rain. Meari may make landfall twice in China, the first time would be located east of Qingdao, and affecting cities such as Yantai and Wehai. Landfall would happen during the afternoon or evening of the 26th June.  The second landfall would occur somewhere between Dalian and the North Korean border around midday on the 27th. Rainfall is likely across the whole region including both North and South Korea. Severe damage is not likely anywhere, except North Korea, where poorly constructed buildings and other infrastructure may be damaged by heavy rain.
