The Northwest Pacific is finally starting to come to life after an extremely inactive season so far. Three hurricanes formed in the past week as a strong MJO pulse moved into the Maritime Continent. The Indian Ocean had two systems back in late May/early June as the Indian Ocean Dipole was in a positive phase, but nothing since. The southern hemisphere has had no activity yet this season (2020-21 season started in July).
Typhoon Maysak hit South Korea yesterday, though it had weakened substantially from its earlier peak of 125 knots (around 85 knots at landfall). Another one is brewing to the southeast Okinawa and should hit the islands early Sunday at an intensity of around 120 knots before taking roughly the same path as Maysak for another landfall in the South Korea on Monday. Two very similar systems taking very similar paths within a week of eachother.
