I think a lot of people here are getting impatient and bored. It's definitely windy out there but nothing crazy yet. My husband and I are taking bets on a satellite that's rocking and some safety cones the bus driver left out.

i think the system being so big, and the presence of multiple eyewalls is expanding that windfield a bit... i'm guessing the winds are not that tightly wound up on that core anymore... either way, typhoon force winds could begin in an hour or so, although the strongest will be felt on the northern side of the island; Naha might only get Cat 1 winds imho

It's definitely picking up out there. There's a bus repair shop in front of my apartment and their roll down garage doors are broken and flapping around like curtains. Very loud curtains.

The JMA may realise that Bolaven’s pressure is not that low. The eye is now on Okinawa Island.

1. FOR METEOROLOGISTS.
2. 6 HOUR SUMMARY AND ANALYSIS.
TYPHOON 16W (BOLAVEN), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 17 NM NORTH-
NORTHEAST OF KADENA AB, JAPAN, HAS TRACKED WEST-NORTHWESTWARD AT 10
KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY
DEPICTS A WELL-ORGANIZED SYSTEM WITH A SMALL 9-NM EYE AND SHOWS
THAT THE SYSTEM IS GOING THROUGH AN EYEWALL REPLACEMENT CYCLE. A
261047Z SSMIS IMAGE DEPICTS A 20 NM DIAMETER EYEWALL SURROUNDED BY
MULTIPLE DEEP CONVECTIVE BANDS WRAPPING INTO THE SYSTEM. THERE IS
HIGH CONFIDENCE IN THE INITIAL POSITION BASED ON THE SMALL EYE
FEATURE AND RADAR FIXES FROM JAPAN. THE INITIAL INTENSITY IS
ASSESSED AT 105 KNOTS BASED ON A DVORAK DATA-T ESTIMATE OF 102 KNOTS
FROM PGTW. THUS FAR, SURFACE OBSERVATIONS ACROSS OKINAWA SHOW 40 TO
50-KNOT SUSTAINED WINDS WITH GUSTS AS HIGH AS 76 KNOTS AND A MINIMUM
SLP OF 952 MB. RADAR IMAGERY SHOWS A 20 NM INNER EYEWALL POSITIONED
OVER CENTRAL OKINAWA BUT NOW BEGINNING TO TRACK NORTHWESTWARD.
ANIMATED WATER VAPOR IMAGERY INDICATES RADIAL OUTFLOW. THE 26/00Z
500MB ANALYSIS INDICATES THAT THE SUBTROPICAL RIDGE (STR) EXTENDS
WESTWARD ACROSS WESTERN JAPAN INTO THE CHEJU-DO REGION WITH A DEEP
MIDLATITUDE SHORTWAVE TROUGH NOW POSITIONED ALONG 120E OVER THE
YELLOW SEA.
3. FORECAST REASONING.
A. NO CHANGE TO THE FORECAST PHILOSOPHY SINCE THE PREVIOUS
PROGNOSTIC REASONING MESSAGE.
B. TY 16W IS TRACKING GENERALLY NORTHWESTWARD ALONG THE SOUTHWEST
PERIPHERY OF THE STR WITH A MINOR TROCHOIDAL MOTION (WOBBLE)
EVIDENT. TY 16W IS EXPECTED TO CONTINUE TRACKING GENERALLY
NORTHWESTWARD THROUGH TAU 12 BUT SHOULD THEN TURN NORTHWARD ALONG
THE WESTERN PERIPHERY OF THE STR AND TRACK INTO THE YELLOW SEA.
DYNAMIC MODEL GUIDANCE IS IN TIGHT AGREEMENT WITH A 100 NM SPREAD
WEST OF SEOUL (NEAR TAU 48). THE JTWC FORECAST IS CONSISTENT WITH
THE PREVIOUS WARNINGS AND IS HEDGED EAST OF THE MODEL CONSENSUS. TY
16W IS EXPECTED TO WEAKEN GRADUALLY THROUGH TAU 36. AFTER 36, THE
SYSTEM WILL WEAKEN SIGNIFICANTLY DUE TO COOLER SST AND INCREASING,
STRONG VERTICAL WIND SHEAR. TY 16W IS EXPECTED TO MAKE LANDFALL NEAR
TAU 48 AND WILL ALSO BEGIN EXTRA-TROPICAL TRANSITION (ETT). TY 16W
IS FORECAST TO COMPLETE ETT NEAR TAU 72 AND SHOULD REMAIN A GALE-
FORCE LOW AS IT TRACKS OVER MANCHURIA. BASED ON THE TIGHT DYNAMIC
MODEL GROUPING, THERE IS HIGH CONFIDENCE IN THE FORECAST TRACK.//

Most of my Oki friends were saying earlier that it wasn't so bad and that they were only getting sustained winds of about 60 mph around the time the eye was passing through. Now, a lot of them are saying they are a little freaked out so the winds must have picked up on the back side of the storm as it passed them. Having a hard time accessing the METARS on Weather Underground to see what the highest recorded wind gusts have been. It will be interesting to see the disparity between northern Okinawa, Kadena, and Naha - all on different parts of the island.

This came out from the Armed Forces Network about a half hour ago:

THIS IS THE LATEST UPDATE FOR TYPHOON BOLAVEN (16W). AS OF 27/0100L, OKINAWA IS IN TCCOR 1-E. AT 26/2300L, TYPHOON BOLAVEN WAS LOCATED 28 NAUTICAL MILES NORTH OF KADENA. IT HAD WINDS GUSTING TO 130 KNOTS NEAR ITS CENTER AND WAS MOVING TO THE WEST AT 8 KNOTS. THE CLOSEST POINT OF APPROACH WAS 14NM N AT 26/2140L. IF TYPHOON BOLAVEN CONTINUES TO MOVE AS FORECAST, DAMAGING WINDS OF 50 KNOTS OR GREATER (SUSTAINED) ARE ANTICIPATED TO OCCUR FROM NOW TO 27/0400L. THE STRONGEST WINDS ON OKINAWA WERE SUSTAINED AT 90 KNOTS WITH 120 KNOT GUSTS AT 26/2140L.

Bolaven had a very small wind field with the sustained typhoon force winds only found in the small donut of convection surrounding the inner eye.

I initially chose Higashi on NE coast to ride out the storm but after seeing a sustained 2hr NNW jog i decided to relocated to Oku about 25km north. Of course just as I arrived in Oku I realised Bolaven had made a sharp left turn and was making landfall right over town I'd left 1 hour previously! Grrr.

Anyway, decided to have a go at "punching" into the eye from the west coast, which after a hair raising drive through the eyewall I managed to do in Nago city. Eye was completely calm, with very warm air temp. JMA measured pressure of 935hPa. Back end of eyewall was pretty wild but nothing too crazy since winds weren't coming off the ocean.

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jdRsQ1F8yiM[/youtube]

All in all Bolaven was a weird storm keeping such a tight and compact core yet being so massive at same time. But it was a lot of fun getting blasted by outer eyewall in Oku, then again by northern eyewall on west coast and then back end of eyewall in Nago!

Time to sleep!!!

TYPHOON 16W (BOLAVEN), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 130 NM NORTH-
NORTHWEST OF KADENA AB, JAPAN, HAS TRACKED NORTH-NORTHWESTWARD AT
12 KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT
270000Z IS 46 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 270900Z, 271500Z, 272100Z AND

SUBJ/PROGNOSTIC REASONING FOR TYPHOON 16W (BOLAVEN) WARNING NR 29//
RMKS//
1. FOR METEOROLOGISTS.
2. 6 HOUR SUMMARY AND ANALYSIS.
TYPHOON 16W (BOLAVEN), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 130 NM NORTH-
NORTHWEST OF KADENA AB, JAPAN, HAS TRACKED NORTH-NORTHWESTWARD AT
12 KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED MULTI-SPECTRAL SATELLITE
IMAGERY (MSI) DEPICTS A LARGE, WELL-ORGANIZED SYSTEM; HOWEVER THERE
IS NO LONGER A VISIBLE EYE. A SERIES OF RECENT MICROWAVE IMAGERY
REVEALS A WEAKENING OF CONVECTION IN THE WESTERN SEMI-CIRCLE, WITH
THE DEEPEST CONVECTION TO THE EAST. THIS IMAGERY ALSO SUGGESTS THAT
THE INNER EYEWALL HAS NOW BEEN COMPLETELY REPLACED BY THE LARGER,
SECONDARY EYEWALL. THIS EYEWALL REPLACEMENT CYCLE (ERC) HAS
CONTRIBUTED TO A DROP IN THE SYSTEM'S INTENSITY. THE INITIAL
POSITION IS BASED ON ANIMATED MSI AND A 262209Z CORIOLIS 37GHZ
MICROWAVE IMAGE WITH GOOD CONFIDENCE. THE INITIAL INTENSITY IS
ASSESSED AT 95 KNOTS BASED ON AN AVERAGE OF DVORAK DATA-T ESTIMATES
RANGING FROM 77 TO 102 KNOTS FROM PGTW, RJTD, AND KNES. ANIMATED
WATER VAPOR IMAGERY INDICATES RADIAL OUTFLOW WITH GOOD OUTFLOW INTO
A LARGE TROPICAL UPPER TROPOSPHERIC TROUGH CELL TO THE SOUTHEAST.
FURTHERMORE, IT APPEARS THAT OUTFLOW ALONG THE NORTHERN PERIPHERY IS
BEING ENHANCED BY AN APPROACHING MID-LATITUDE TROUGH. UPPER AIR
ANALYSIS INDICATES THAT THE SUBTROPICAL RIDGE (STR) EXTENDS WESTWARD
ACROSS WESTERN JAPAN INTO THE CHEJU-DO REGION WITH A DEEP
MIDLATITUDE SHORTWAVE TROUGH NOW POSITIONED ALONG EASTERN CHINA AND
THE YELLOW SEA.
3. FORECAST REASONING.
A. NO CHANGE TO THE FORECAST PHILOSOPHY SINCE THE PREVIOUS
PROGNOSTIC REASONING MESSAGE.
B. TY 16W IS TRACKING GENERALLY NORTH-NORTHWESTWARD ALONG THE
SOUTHWESTERN PERIPHERY OF THE STR. THE SYSTEM IS EXPECTED TO
CONTINUE TRACKING AROUND THE WESTERN PERIPHERY OF THE STR AND INTO
THE YELLOW SEA. DYNAMIC MODEL GUIDANCE REMAINS IN EXTREMELY TIGHT
AGREEMENT WITH LESS THAN A 100 NM SPREAD WEST OF SEOUL (AFTER TAU
24). THE JTWC FORECAST IS CONSISTENT WITH THE PREVIOUS WARNINGS AND
IS HEDGED EAST OF THE MODEL CONSENSUS. TY 16W IS EXPECTED TO WEAKEN
GRADUALLY OVER THE NEXT 12 HOURS, PARTIALLY AS A RESULT OF THE ERC
AS WELL AS INCREASING VERTICAL WIND SHEAR (VWS). AFTER TAU 12, THE
SYSTEM WILL WEAKEN SIGNIFICANTLY DUE TO COOLER SST AND INCREASINGLY
STRONG VWS ASSOCIATED WITH THE TROUGH. TY 16W IS EXPECTED TO MAKE
LANDFALL PRIOR TO TAU 36 AND WILL BEGIN EXTRA-TROPICAL TRANSITION
(ETT) AT ABOUT THAT SAME TIME. TY 16W IS FORECAST TO COMPLETE ETT
NEAR TAU 72 AND SHOULD REMAIN A GALE- FORCE LOW AS IT TRACKS OVER
MANCHURIA. BASED ON THE TIGHT DYNAMIC MODEL GROUPING, THERE IS HIGH
CONFIDENCE IN THE FORECAST TRACK.//

Just saw James on CNN again, im sure he is getting a full work week in right now. Still storms blowing across Okinawa even, some 10 meters high waves and additional 250mm is to be expected still according to JMA.

1. FOR METEOROLOGISTS.
2. 6 HOUR SUMMARY AND ANALYSIS.
TYPHOON 16W (BOLAVEN), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 380 NM SOUTH-
SOUTHWEST OF SEOUL, SOUTH KOREA, HAS TRACKED NORTH-NORTHWESTWARD AT
16 KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED INFRARED SATELLITE
IMAGERY INDICATES THAT TY 16W HAS WEAKENED SLIGHTLY OVER THE PAST
SIX HOURS; HOWEVER, THE SYSTEM HAS MAINTAINED TIGHTLY-CURVED
CONVECTIVE BANDING WRAPPING INTO A WELL-DEFINED AND LARGE LOW-LEVEL
CIRCULATION CENTER (ABOUT 480-550 NM DIAMETER). A 270926Z CORIOLIS
IMAGE DEPICTS A WELL-DEFINED MICROWAVE EYE FEATURE. ANIMATED WATER
VAPOR IMAGERY INDICATES RADIAL OUTFLOW AND IMPROVED POLEWARD OUTFLOW
ALTHOUGH THERE IS SOME PRESSURE ON THE WESTERN PERIPHERY OF THE
SYSTEM CAUSED BY AN APPROACHING SHORTWAVE TROUGH. THERE IS GOOD
CONFIDENCE IN THE INITIAL POSITION. THE INITIAL INTENSITY IS
ASSESSED AT 70 KNOTS BASED ON AN AVERAGE OF DVORAK CURRENT INTENSITY
ESTIMATES RANGING FROM 65 TO 77 KNOTS PGTW. TY 16W IS TRACKING ALONG
THE WESTERN PERIPHERY OF THE DEEP SUBTROPICAL RIDGE (STR) CENTERED
OVER CENTRAL JAPAN. THE 27/00Z 500 MB ANALYSIS DEPICTS A DEEP TROUGH
AXIS ALONG 115E WITH SOUTHERLY FLOW INDICATED OVER THE KOREAN
PENINSULA, MARKING THE WESTERN EXTENT OF THE STR.
3. FORECAST REASONING.
A. NO CHANGE TO THE FORECAST PHILOSOPHY SINCE THE PREVIOUS
PROGNOSTIC REASONING MESSAGE.
B. TY 16W IS FORECAST TO CONTINUE TRACKING NORTH-NORTHWESTWARD TO
NORTHWARD ALONG THE WESTERN EDGE OF THE STR THROUGH TAU 12 AND
SHOULD ACCELERATE AHEAD OF THE DEEP UPPER-LEVEL TROUGH. AFTER TAU
12, SST WILL COOL SIGNIFICANTLY AND VERTICAL WIND SHEAR WILL BECOME
INCREASINGLY HOSTILE; THEREFORE, THE SYSTEM IS EXPECTED TO WEAKEN
RAPIDLY AS IT TRACKS WEST OF SEOUL; HOWEVER, TY 16W IS EXPECTED TO
REMAIN A STRONG 50-60 KNOT SYSTEM. THERE IS UNCERTAINTY IN THE
INTENSITY FORECAST DURING THIS STAGE OF THE TRACK BUT TY 16W HAS
MAINTAINED AN EXTENSIVE AREA OF GALE-FORCE WINDS AS EVIDENCED IN THE
RECENT 270054Z ASCAT BULLS-EYE AND THE NEAR-GALE FORCE WINDS
CURRENTLY BEING OBSERVED ON CHEJU-DO (RKPC). THERE IS HIGH
CONFIDENCE IN THE TRACK FORECAST BASED ON THE TIGHT, 65 NM SPREAD IN
MODEL SOLUTIONS WEST OF SEOUL AND TIGHT ENSEMBLE GUIDANCE. TY 16W IS
EXPECTED TO TURN NORTH-NORTHEASTWARD OVER NORTH KOREA AND MANCHURIA
AND IS FORECAST TO TRANSITION INTO A GALE-FORCE MIDLATITUDE LOW NEAR
TAU 48.//
