TCOTD – Typhoon Wynne – Oct. 8

October 8
1980 WYNNE 126 knots in the Western North Pacific

HURSAT imagery has less availability the further back one goes. So the best image I have is this curved band images while Typhoon Wynne was still a pretty weak system. It was, however, one of the most intense systems of the year!
