Conson briefly strengthened to typhoon status before returning to tropical-storm strength on July 13, 2010. At 15:00 UTC (11:00 p.m. Manila time) on July 13, the U.S. Navyís Joint Typhoon Warning Center (JTWC) reported that Conson had maximum sustained winds of 60 knots (110 kilometers per hour) and gusts up to 75 knots (140 kilometers per hour). The storm was located roughly 70 nautical miles (130 kilometers) east of Manila, and was traveling westward. Passing over land had decreased the stormís strength.

The MODIS on NASAís Aqua satellite captured this natural-color image at 12:55 p.m. Manila time (4:55 UTC) on July 13, 2010. Storm clouds extend across the Philippines with the apparent center of the storm east-southeast of Manila.
