Typhoon Lan is rapidly intensifying just east of the Philippines.

The storm is expected to spare the Philippines, but could pose a threat to Okinawa this weekend, then parts of mainland Japan Monday.

Lan may intensify into a super typhoon.

Upper-level winds are favorable for development.

The storm has had winds up to 250 km/h and 7 metre high waves.
