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.

Neutral ENSO years are traditionally hard to predict because the season could go either way. 2005 was a Neutral ENSO and we saw what happened. 2013 is a Neutral ENSO and we see what is happening. A traditional El-Nino and La-Nina are more easier to predict. In general pre-season predictions are going to be subject to high errors. 2006 was predicted to be active as a continuation of 2005, however, an El-Nino formed and the prediction busted.
Do you know how to access the Topex/Posiedon images? If I did this I would fail at sending the images to the group. This could solve the ninyoniya problem these South Americans are always complaining about. If it is partly owned by the French, then I suspect it is not shut down. I parley a petit francois,mais I suck at it. I understand Cajon people just fine though. I suspect it is because they are speaking American French.Aussi vite que possible!

Fair enough , but what if someone preforms personal attacks on you ... and then pulls it a couple of minutes later would that not be sneaky ? I know one day last year One person started an attack ,took down their comment and another ran with it and absolutely shredded me and then completely changed it a few minutes later . And neither are trolls ....


Well that definitely constitutes sneaky as well, in fact that's just dirty and cowardly...

Even if some people may do that though, that doesn't mean if I or you do it that it has to be the same motive. Even if people were to assume so, you can't change how people perceive things, so I don't worry about that. I only worry about what I intend.

If I say something that is out of line, I won't delete it and replace it with a (.) instead I will simply apologize.

I generally resolve the dot for failed media posts or if I just feel a comment wasn't necessary, more minor things. But I agree, personal attacks should be followed by an apology, not an attempt to sneak out of the problem which is childish and cowardly.

When in doubt, apology is always the best option, since respect of others I think should be more important than personal reputation.

Oops! I found an offshore island (does that makes sense with Japan all islands?) Miyakejima. I think the center passed directly over the station. The pressure was 953.5 mb at 5 a.m. Japan time. The center was about to pass over. The pressure fell 12.1 mb in the hour before and rose 9.4 mb the hour afterwards.

Good night and all the best for Japan and the WPAC!

A lot of luck over the last week with the tracks of this Japan storm and the one on the east coast of India.
A few degrees west for the Japan storm and a few degrees north or the India one and the damage may have been double catastrophes.
Not that things are not bad enough as it is of course.

A clickable map of Fukushima prefecture. The Fukushima nuclear plant is on the coast between Namie (to the north) and Tomioka (to the south).

Namie and Tomioka are only about 10 miles apart so both represent local conditions at Fukushima pretty well. Namie is a little inland so the winds at Fukushima are likely a little stronger.

THIS EVENING...PINCHED GRADIENT NORTH OF THE LOW JUST EAST OF
DAYTONA BEACH WILL KEEP WINDY CONDITIONS ALONG THE COAST INTO THIS
EVENING AND HAVE KEPT LAKE WIND ADVISORY IN PLACE THROUGH 9 PM FOR
AREAS FROM JACKSONVILLE TO ST AUGUSTINE. ON/OFF RAIN AND DRIZZLE IN
THE ONSHORE FLOW WILL CONTINUE FROM THE COAST WELL INLAND TO THE ST
JOHNS RIVER BASIN...ALTHOUGH NOT MUCH IN THE WAY OF HEAVY RAINFALL
HAS BEEN NOTED.

TONIGHT...WITH LOW HANGING IN TOUGH JUST EAST OF DAYTONA BEACH
EXPECT ONSHORE FLOW AND ON-OFF RAIN...DRIZZLE AND FOG TO BE THE
RULE OVERNIGHT. SOME SLIGHT CHANCE OF HEAVIER SHOWERS SETTING UP
ALONG THE NE FL COASTLINE BUT AS THE PRESSURE GRADIENT WEAKENS
SLOWLY OVERNIGHT THE THREAT OF ANY HEAVY RAINFALL LESSENS WITH
TIME. LOWS WILL GENERALLY BE IN THE 60S WITH GENERALLY CLOUDY
SKIES AND PATCHY FOG POSSIBLE DURING THE OVERNIGHT HOURS OVER
INLAND AREAS.

WEDNESDAY...LINGERING LOW LEVEL MOISTURE WILL MAINTAIN CLOUDY
CONDITIONS ACROSS PORTIONS OF SOUTHEAST GEORGIA THROUGH A GOOD
CHUNK OF THE DAY...WITH SOME SUNSHINE EXPECTED TO BREAK OUT OVER
NORTHEAST FLORIDA. WILL SHOW A SLIGHT CHANCE OF A FEW RAIN SHOWERS
ALONG THE COAST IN THE MORNING AS A WEAK SURFACE TROUGH LINGERS
OVER THE AREA. SLIGHT CHANCE OF SHOWERS WILL SHIFT TO INLAND
NORTHEAST FLORIDA WEST OF I-95 DURING THE AFTERNOON HOURS. WINDS
WILL BE MUCH LIGHTER AS HIGH PRESSURE GRADUALLY TAKES OVER.

WEDNESDAY NIGHT WILL BE MOSTLY DRY WITH CLEARING SKIES AND CALMS
WINDS SETTING THE STAGE FOR AT LEAST SOME PATCHY FOG...POSSIBLY
LOCALLY DENSE FOG.

HIGH PRESSURE WILL SHIFT EAST OF THE AREA ON THURSDAY. WARM
SOUTHWESTERLY RETURN FLOW AHEAD OF AN APPROACHING COLD FRONT WILL
DRIVE TEMPS WELL INTO THE 80S. THE FRONT WILL SLOW DOWN AND STALL
ACROSS SOUTHEAST GEORGIA LATE IN THE DAY...WITH PERHAPS A FEW
SHOWERS ABLE TO SURVIVE INTO THE FAR NORTHWEST PORTIONS OF OUR
AREA LATE THURSDAY AFTERNOON INTO THURSDAY EVENING. LACK OF UPPER
FORCING ALONG WITH WEAKENING LOW LEVEL FRONTAL CONVERGENCE DOES
NOT ALLOW US TO GO WITH ANYTHING MORE THAN 20% CHANCE OF LIGHT
RAIN SHOWERS.

STALLED FRONTAL BOUNDARY WILL REMAIN OVER SOUTHEAST GEORGIA ON
FRIDAY AND WE WILL GO WITH ONLY LOW RAIN CHANCES AREA WIDE SINCE
FORCING REMAINS LIMITED. TEMPS ACROSS NE FLORIDA SHOULD AGAIN
EASILY CLIMB WELL INTO THE 80S...WELL ABOVE NORMAL FOR THIS TIME
OF YEAR.

.LONG TERM...SATURDAY THROUGH TUESDAY...
SOUTHWEST FLOW ALOFT WILL INCREASE OVER THE LOCAL AREA AS A POTENT
SHORTWAVE TROUGH DIGS INTO TEXAS...RESULTING IN AN INCREASE OF
MOISTURE OFF OF THE GULF OF MEXICO. IN ADDITION...THE STALLED
FRONTAL BOUNDARY WILL BEGIN TO SLOWLY DRIFT SOUTH OVER THE
FORECAST AREA. THE INCREASED MOISTURE AND LARGE SCALE ASCENT ARE
STARTING TO POINT TO THE POTENTIAL FOR A WETTER WEEKEND THAN
PREVIOUSLY EXPECTED ACROSS THE LOCAL FORECAST AREA. THE LATEST GFS
AND ECMWF ARE BOTH SHOWING THIS POTENTIAL BUT DIFFER ON WHETHER
THE BEST CHANCES OF RAIN WILL BE ON SATURDAY OR SUNDAY. WE WILL
HOLD OFF AND WAIT FOR A LITTLE MORE MODEL CONSISTENCY BEFORE
INCREASING THE POPS TO ACCOUNT FOR A POTENTIAL WETTER SCENARIO.

What model suggests that?

The coldest the GFS suggests is upper 30s in far northern Minnesota for Sunday afternoon. Highs in the 20s to low 30s is very unusual for the Midwest in mid to late October. It would definitely break records for coldest maximum temp, using Minneapolis as an example. If models depict this kind of scenario and are not consistent, you should be very skeptical.


High temps in SE IA where my folks live are forecast to be in the upper 50's/low 60's for the next 7 days with lows generally around 40, give or take a few degrees.
