Something from my website today, figured I would share it here too.

Tropical Storm Trami was upgraded to its TS status by JMA today. At the same time its sister storm to the north saw its demise as JTWC issued its final warning securing the results of our Fujiwara death match between the two storms. Tropical Storm Trami will continue to wrap around behind the remnants of the TD to the north and then push back west through the rest of the week. The main threat from this storm will be the rain as the title would suggest. From north west Luzon through the southern Japanese islands there is a risk of flooding. The heaviest stuff at this time is across the west coast of Luzon as monsoonal inflow combined with the rain bands from Trami create heavy showers. Flooding and landslides can be expected here including in to the Manila Metro area. Low lying areas could see pooling up of waters through mid-week as thunderstorms continue to flare up.

As far as the Southern Japanese islands the Gale warnings around the islands have been dropped to near gale at this time yet are expected to be picked back up as Trami loops back towards the north. Thunderstorm advisories remain in effect today. Click here for full details. The main threat from this storm will be high seas by Tuesday in to Wednesday along the west coast and passing showers and thunderstorms. Okinawa remains in the dry sector of Trami though so the heavy showers will actually be farther south in to Northern Luzon.

Military in Okinawa are under a “Storm Watch”. In short this indicates rough weather is in the area but not quite destructive winds. Key thing to remember if the rest of the island is carrying on with there daily lives, you should too if your Military. Do not separate yourself from the general population and JMA has issued no Typhoon warnings for the southern Japanese islands at this time.

With that said the storms intensity forecast still remains rather uncertain and a Typhoon could develop and impact Taiwan by mid-week. A more like scenario would be a severe tropical storm though.

We will continue to monitor this storm and update again as the forecast becomes clearer through the coming days.

Yes. true...

It wasn't your journalism I was complaining about. More of what mother nature had in store for us.

Quoting 1. Dakster:
Interesting read. I would have like to see the fujiwara dance though - rather than a 'take over'.


Well I did write

"securing the results of our Fujiwara death match between the two storms." hehe
