And some cloud structure
In the US they say "close only counts in horse shoes and hand grenades" but it also counts with hurricanes/typhoons. While it might hit a bit East of us, the projected wind speeds will still be quite high over much of the island.
Here is a nice visual from a Philippines tracking site.

Here are some web cam snapshots around HK from HKO:
I see Waglan Island started to rain at 8:30AM.
According to radar, first wave of down pour will arrive in 1 hour.
Latest tick has it veering north. Would be excellent if the worst missed us... but that would displease the various Boys crying wolf on here no doubt!
1.) USAGI took did a little jog poleward in the early hours and is now forecast to make landfall somewhere between Hong Kong proper and Shanwei so a 'direct hit' is sill likely. Landfall to the East is favourable to Hong Kong because of the reduced risk of storm surge.
2.) USAGI has become better organised in the last few hours which tends to result in strengthening, however, she is now over cooler waters.
3.) If you're going out remember your umbrellas.
Signing off now to spend time with the family.
Be safe everyone. Batten down the hatches, and stay home.
