Typhoon Megi Update #6

Megi has been upgraded into a typhoon. Typhoon Megi has strengthened considerably over the past 6 hours. Maximum winds are now at 150kph with gusts reaching up to 185kph. Megi is moving to the northwest at 15kph. Vigorous intensification is going to continue as Megi becomes better organized. A favorable upper-level environment, as well as the warm seas east of the Philippines, will aid Typhoon Megi in reaching major typhoon status (Cat 3) within the next 24-48 hours.

No significant changes with the forecast track, however, so Megi is still forecast to impact Luzon early next week.
Issued (22 UTC) 6am PST 101510
