Stormy West Pacific November28

This interesting surface chart was sent by KVM 70, Hawaii, this morning on 16135.0 kHz USB (dial frequency 16133.1), at 1815 UTC:

Note the path of Super Typhoon Nida, which has taken the predicted curve to the northeast away from Japan. Everything's going up and around those two huge highs to the east.

UPDATE 29 NOV: Nida has stalled out, now moving very slowly northwestward, expected to curve westward and dissipate.
