Tropical Storm Fengshen is starting to undergo extra-tropical transition as it moves away from Japan. The system was last located approximately 480km southeast of Tokyo. Maximum sustained winds are at 110kph with gusts of up to 140kph. TS Fengshen is moving northeastward at 30kph.

Latest satellite image shows ample convective activity in and around the circulation. Wind analysis also reveal winds remain just below typhoon-strength near the low-level center. However, Fengshen is starting to show signs of extra-tropical transition. The system is now interacting with the baroclinic zone in the North Pacific and could completely become an extra-tropical cyclone by tomorrow.

Tropical Storm Fengshen will continue pulling away from Japan and move towards the North Pacific in the next few days as an extra-tropical low.

This is the final update for Fengshen, no other Tropical Cyclones are expected to form in the Western Pacific in the next 2 to 3 days.
