Day 73 in the Atlantic, Day 91 in the Eastern Pacific
Typhoon Utor (Philippine name Labuyo) made landfall in eastern Luzon at around 9:00pm UTC (5:00am PHT) as a Category 4 storm with winds of 140mph, gusting to 165mph, in northern Aurora province, not far from the border with Isabela province. The storm is now moving through Luzon and is likely to emerge over the South China Sea as a Category 2 typhoon in the next twelve hours.

Utor peaked as a 150mph super typhoon, but weakened slightly before making landfall. However, the storm is and remains very dangerous, and could cause major structural damage and locally extreme flooding, especially in mountaneous areas of eastern Luzon.

The storm is expected to continue west-northwest in the South China Sea, before curving poleward and making landfall on the coast of China, between Macau and Hainan, as at least a Category 2 typhoon.

Tropical Depression Henriette has finally succumbed to poor environmental conditions, and is now a remnant low far to the south of the Hawaiian islands.
Invest 92E is currently located in the Eastern Pacific, and has a low chance of development.
Invest 97W is currently located in the South China Sea, south of Hainan, but is not likely to develop and anything left of the storm is likely to be absorbed by Utor
Invest 90S is the first system of the southern hemisphere seasons, and is located to the southwest of Indonesia. This system is not likely to develop.
