North Pacific Hurricane Force Storm to cause Shipping Delays

Adeepening storm low over the Central North Pacific during the next 48 hourswill produce winds forces 10-12 (55-70 knots) and seas to 43 feet (13 meters)within 240 NM south and southwest of the center. This system is developing under a strongupper-level jet that has been displaced southward between 30N and 40Nlatitudes. This situation often causesweather delays for westbound shipping from the PCZ to Far East Ports.
