Dangerous Typhoon Wipha Drenching Japan

Large and powerful Category 1 Typhoon Wipha is bearing down on Japan as the storm races northeast at 28 mph. Wipha is likely to be the strongest typhoon to hit Japan since Typhoon Tokage of October 2004, according to the Japan Meteorological Agency. Wipha is merging with a cold front and undergoing the transition to an extratropical storm--the same process Hurricane Sandy underwent as it approached landfall in October 2012. While Typhoon Wipha is not as powerful as Sandy, it does have a huge area of winds in excess of 50 knots (57.5 mph), which extend out 130 miles to the left of the center. Since the center of Wipha is expected to graze the southern coast of Japan today, and the storm will only weaken slightly, a 100-mile-wide swath of Japan will see damaging winds of 50 knots, according to the Japan Meteorological Agency. About a 30 mile-wide swath of Japan will experience winds of 75 mph (hurricane force.) Tokyo will be right at the edge of the hurricane-force wind swath. With many trees still in leaf, these winds will cause widespread tree damage and downed power lines. The counter-clockwise flow of moist, tropical air around the center of Wipha is meeting up with the cold front currently over Japan. This is generating torrential rains over large portions of the country, as the moist air is forced upwards over the cold front, making the air expand and cool, condensing its copious moisture. Radar precipitation estimates show that rainfall rates of 1 - 2" per hour were occurring near Tokyo today. Heavy rains of 4 - 8" capable of causing damaging flooding will be widespread over Japan, including over the Fukushima nuclear site, where rainfall from Typhoon Man-Yi on September 16 complicated clean-up efforts of the reactors damaged by the March 2011 earthquake and tsunami.

Japan may not be all done with typhoons this month, as both the GFS and European models are predicting that an area of disturbed weather (Invest 93W) east of the Philippines will develop into a tropical storm late this week, which will then head northwest and threaten Japan by next Wednesday, October 23.

Typhoon Nari hits Vietnam
Torrential rains are falling in Southeast Asia due to Typhoon Nari, which made landfall near Da Nang around 03 UTC on Wednesday as a Category 1 typhoon with 80 mph winds. The eye passed 10 miles south of Da Nang, putting the city in the stronger northern semicircle of the storm. Da Nang recorded top sustained winds of 55 mph, gusting to 81 mph, and picked up 4.06" of rain. Damage is heavy in Da Nang, and at least five deaths are being blamed on the storm. Nari battered the Philippines on Friday, killing thirteen people and leaving 2.1 million people without power on the main Philippine island of Luzon.

The Atlantic is quiet
The tropical wave (Invest 98L) a few hundred miles east of the Lesser Antilles Islands that we've been tracking this week has been torn apart by high winds, and is no longer a threat to develop. There are no threat areas in the Atlantic to discuss today, and none of the reliable computer models for forecasting tropical cyclone genesis is predicting development over the next five days.

Tropical Depression Octave in the Eastern Pacific bringing needed rain to Texas
In the Eastern Pacific, we have two tropical cyclones: Tropical Storm Priscilla, a minimal-strength tropical storm that is weakening and heading northwest out to sea, and Tropical Depression Octave, which hit Mexico's Baja Peninsula early Wednesday morning. Octave and Priscilla are embedded in a large plume of tropical moisture that is riding up to the northeast over Mexico and Texas. Flood watches and warnings are posted over much of the southern half of Texas, where widespread rains of 2 - 6" have fallen over the past two days. While the heavy rains have caused some minor to moderate flooding, the precipitation is mostly welcome, as it will make a substantial dent in the multi-year drought that has gripped much of Texas.

Children learn at an early age that "No!" is a powerful word. Their parents tell them that, and they feel deflated. When they figure out that they too can say "No!", they reach an important milestone in their emotional development. Unfortunately, some people never outgrow this fundamental denialism. They continue to say "No!" in order to feel powerful the rest of their lives.

Same thing with ENSO. Which is the stronger of the "oscillations" that make up climate variability. They are noise on top of the trend. In a warming trend, when the "noise" favors warmer temperatures, it loads the dice such that a record warm temperature is more likely. As such, it is not unusual in any way that the warmest years on record would correspond as your link suggested. There also are climatic changes occurring with ocean temperatures which can show up in these indeces if they do not have trends removed.

Again, AMO didn't cause the temperature trends. AMO cannot explain the modern warming. AMO cannot create or destroy heat energy. This is not controversial.


Oh, it will remain controversial as long as there are people who think our government is actually capable of leading/partaking in global conspiracies.

Anyway, he raises a salient point. If you ignore thermodynamics and conservation of energy, then his reasoning is sound. Now all he needs to do is show that the laws of thermodynamics/matter-energy conservation are incorrect and he'll have a rock solid theory, multiple Nobel prizes, and more money and fame than any person in the history of the world.

There have been quite a few weather-related deaths lately...here's how it breaks down according to the latest media reports:

- 36 dead as a result of Cyclone Phailin, all of which in the storm's landfall state on the eastern coast of India

- Death toll as a result of Typhoon Nari at 38: 33 in the Philippines, 5 in Vietnam

- New information is that Typhoon Wipha has killed 13 in Japan

- The death toll as reported by the Associated Press is up to 110 in relation to the Philippine earthquake

Back in the old days we did not worry about drought in the east. Until the mid 80's we still had a few trees. Asphalt pavement took off, and I invested heavily in it.


Hardly. A devastating drought occured in the northeast from 1961 to 1966. Between January 1963 and August 1966 Philadelphia's rainfall was 40" below normal.

The normal rainfall at Central Park is 49.94"

Rainfall totals for Central Park

1961 39.32" 10.62" below normal
1962 37.15" 12.79" below normal
1963 34.28" 15.66" below normal
1964 32.99" 16.95" below normal
1965 26.09" 23.85" below normal
1966 39.90" 10.04" below normal

total of 89.91" below normal those 6 years.

How to read a MJO graph

Member Since: Posts: Comments:
Quoting 475. MiamiHeat305:

MJO is the Madden% Julian oscillation

Rather than being a standing pattern (like ENSO) it is a traveling pattern, propagating eastwards at approximately 4 to 8 m/s (9 to 18 mph), through the atmosphere above the warm parts of the Indian and Pacific oceans. This overall circulation pattern manifests itself in various ways, most clearly as anomalous rainfall. This was discovered by Roland Madden and Paul Julian (again the comparison with ENSO is instructive, since their local effects on Peruvian fisheries were discovered long before the global structure of the pattern was recognized).

How to read the graph, I have the basics but there are people here that can explain that better than me....

Remember that I think in Spanish.... I translate while I write....

Antarctic Researchers To Congress: Don't Stop The Science!
Posted: 10/15/2013 6:57 pm EDT | Updated: 10/15/2013 7:13 pm EDT


WASHINGTON -- A contractor working at the United States Antarctic Program has started an online petition asking Congress to shield the program's McMurdo Station from the effects of the government shutdown.

Richard Jeong, a senior systems administrator at United States Antarctic Program, started the Change.org petition last week, and more than 3,000 people—including a number of scientists -- have since signed it.

Jeong wants the government to continue funding the station's work, which is part of a National Science Foundation program. The shutdown came just as scientists there were preparing for the summer research season, and the closure has forced the station to go into a holding pattern while it awaits a new appropriation.

"Unlike shutting down a court or a government office in a city, removing Antarctic participants from the ice means losing a long-term investment in infrastructure and a higher cost to re-start the projects," wrote Jeong. "I’m seeing the devastating consequences of this decision firsthand as I’ve been working as a contractor at McMurdo Station in Antarctica all winter. Congress must pass a shutdown exemption, similar to US Military Pay and US Defense Contractors, for the USAP program or end the shutdown."
