Typhoon LEKIMA's cloud pattern was not well balanced at the time of its birth, but it is gradually getting organized with large clouds at the center, and seems to start an intensification period. The forecast track of the typhoon has been changing to the west because the typhoon did not turn north as expected, so the most affected area is going to be Vietnam, which is a little different from the initial forecast of Japan Meteorological Agency.

Typhoon LEKIMA was formed in South China Sea. This typhoon has the 30kt wind area with the radius of 850km, which is classified as a very large typhoon. This classification is relatively unusual for a typhoon just formed, and different from a typical typhoon which has strong winds just around the center. This typhoon is forecast to turn northwards to China, so attention should be paid on the evolution of this typhoon.
