Plain Language Summary: The Advanced Weather Research and Forecasting (WRF- ARW) model is used to investigate possible influences of a predominantly upper-level easterly wave (EW) on Typhoon Megi’s (2010) sharp northward turn on 20 October, 2010 after passing over the Philippines. In the presence of the upper-level eastly wave (EW), the simulation reasonably well produced the sudden track change of Megi.
