A Wet End to the Week. Flooding for Some?

71 posts in this topic

We had some flooding here in Davao already this week and I have been paying attention to the forecast models more than usual over the past few days. There has been an area of low pressure southeast of Mindanao that finally moved away yesterday, but another area of low pressure looks like it will take its place by the end of the week. This one looks stronger and looks like it will produce even more rain than the last one. Some earlier model runs had shown this reaching tropical storm strength, but the latest run backed off on that.

 

The latest model run shows much of eastern and northern Mindanao getting well over 10 inches of rain between now and Sunday with most of that falling on Friday or Saturday. Cebu also looks pretty wet with as much as 5 inches falling in the same period. Just something to keep an eye on especially in Mindanao. The Compostela Valley usually gets hit hard with flooding and mudslides in situations like this, so even though this will not be a very strong storm, it can still cause a lot of problems.

The models this afternoon have really increased the amounts of rainfall expected over much of Mindanao. It still looks like Cebu will see some significant rain, but nothing too severe. 12 to 18 inches of rain over much of Mindanao could lead to some serious flooding though. Most of the rain still looks like it will fall on Friday and Saturday. 

 

Raifall totals predicted by the European Model

The GFS is also in agreement that there will be a lot of rain in the coming days.

It has rained here every day for the last 45 days, some days more than others. Thankfully most of it happens at night.

I call it the "Camelot effect."

Send some my way to central Florida. We've pretty much had drought like conditions for the 2 years I've been here. We're lucky if it rains once a week. I think it's rained twice in the past 6 weeks...

The latest GFS brings this system back up to tropical storm strength just before making landfall in eastern Mindanao like it was showing a few days ago. Whether it becomes a tropical storm or not, there will be a lot of rain for much of Mindanao and the Visayas between now and Sunday. Flooding will no doubt be an issue in the coming days for many areas with the amounts of rainfall the models are projecting.

 

The European model shifted the heaviest rain a little further north and shows Cebu getting more than it did before. Still nothing like parts of northern Mindanao are expected to see though.

The GFS still shows eastern Mindanao getting the heaviest rainfall and that is probably the most likely scenario.

Have the goats been doing this as the sun starts to set?

      Don't know how long this has been an issue, but over the last few months Netflix and Amazon movies have been buffering, lately it has become annoying so I started looking into it.   I am in the US by the way, but think this could be an international problem. I am with Comcast Infinity and should have 20mb service with a Motorola SB6121 modem 6 to 7 years old.   This is not a rented modem from Xfinity, I own it. I have avg of 3.2 download and around 1 upload.   I contacted tech support and they were pretty good on the phone, but emphasized that this is not their modem so speeds are not guaranteed. After 20 minutes of on the phone resetting things, removing router from system they declared my modem is the problem and they want to send me one of theirs. At $10 month rental. I don't trust them but cannot seem to find a way to tell if it is the modem and cannot seem to find a way to test it.   Any thoughts on this or websites would be appreciated.

      I'm driving to SFO later today (Sat) and will land in Cebu Monday morning... pretty damn excited, not looking forward to that long ass flight. I will take a small hit at currency exchange at the airport for some quick cash, then go to a Bank by the mall later on. I am bringing some cash and trying to avoid the fees for using my CC in Cebu. Lots of tee shirts, shorts have been packed, flip flops, sandals, and a pair of comfortable slip on's and short socks for the slip on's (not for the sandals  ) some American snacks, protein bars, and I plan on buying a ton of bottled water... no tap. I had a few trips scheduled but the weather looks like it will cancel a couple of them... just going to play it by the seat of my arse.  This will be my first visit in what I hope will be many. This is a precursor to possibly living there in the coming years once my mom (who I take care of) passes... I am so out of this chit state of Cali!!!. On paper I am planning on 3 visits this year, next in July, then at the end of the year, probably Christmas time (only if I am good with the first visit) I will be meeting the woman I have been talking with for half a year, and I will be meeting a member from LINC who befriended me after I got blasted by a few on here when I mentioned meeting a woman, and how I was supposedly doing it all wrong. (Thanks to Shadow for giving me some pointers) If I don't like the Phils then my next targets are Belize and Chiang Mai (possible business op with a friend) Nothing carved in stone, but I hope the Phils works for me. I'll probably be silent for about the next 2 weeks... but no promises if I feel I need to share some pics or something. In regard to pics... I noticed on here there are very few photos of of the members or things they are doing etc... shy? Scared? Protective? Too ugly?    Peace
