Nock-Ten ran up the east side of the Philippines, before running over Luzon, clipping China, and finally hitting Vietnam and Laos, before dissipating. Meanwhile, another storm, Muifa, is heading northward in the Pacific and may pose a threat to China, the Koreas and Japan later this week. Season-long rainfall remains near normal across most of India. In the Middle East, seasonal dryness continues.
Another system, Muifa, is very strong, and currently is heading due northward. The storm is currently in a position to slam into China, South Korea or Japan, with the Shanghai area having the highest likelihood of landfall. However this is still days away and the long-term forecast could change. Current short-term forecasts send the storm directly past Okinawa during the next two days.
