Tropical Storm PEWA Gaining Strength in the Pacific

Developing further at the moment is another tropical storm that strengthened rather quickly, now called Tropical Storm PEWA. Presently located in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, this storm is moving north west with winds speeds steady at 50 MPH, but gusting at 65 mph. The air pressure is setting at around 1000 mb. The storm is expected to gain strength to a Category 1 Typhoon within the next 48 hours. The general direction of the storm if it continues on its present path will be towards mainland Japan.
