THE CYCLONE WILL TRACK OVER OKINAWA WITHIN THE NEXT FEW HOURS AND
CONTINUE ON A NORTHWESTWARD TRACK FOR THE NEXT 12 TO 24 HOURS.
THE CYCLONE WILL TURN NORTH AND THEN NORTHEAST AFTER 010600Z AND
BEGIN TO RECURVE OVER THE KOREAN PENINSULA AND INTO THE SEA OF
JAPAN. THE CYCLONE WILL BEGIN AND COMPLETE EXTRATROPICAL TRANSITION
IN THE SEA OF JAPAN. IT APPEARS UNLIKELY KOMPASU WILL INTENSITY MUCH
