    Upper-level winds are favorable for development, featuring prominent outflow channels both to the northeast and southwest. Typically ample ocean-heat content is also in play.

    Therefore, Lan is expected to rapidly intensify into a super typhoon – with maximum sustained winds of at least 150 mph – in the next few days, according to the U.S. Joint Typhoon Warning Center forecast.

    Lan will track generally toward the north, before beginning a northeast turn due to the steering effects of high pressure to its east and the increasing influence of the jet stream as it gains latitude this weekend.

    Lan is not expected to pose a threat to the Philippines, Taiwan or eastern China, but by this weekend, it may pass close to Okinawa, then mainland Japan.
