Typhoon Season?

13 posts in this topic

Being a native of Florida I am accustomed to tropical storms/cyclones, though the Pacific is a much larger breading ground for these. Back home hurricane season runs from June 1st - November 30th. But every time I turn around in the Phils there seems to be one more coming !!!

 

What is the official Typhoon Season and what is the realistic Typhoon Season?

 

Also, are there defined seasons other than the rainy season and the dry season?

Still...the season is less definitive than in the other hemisphere. My guess is the pacific is warmer than the atlantic.

 

thanks


Typhoon season is generally June through November, but storms can come through anytime.

 

exept February...apparently

There's the basic reason why mostly in the summer time

There's an interesting study about the effects of La Nina and El Nino to typhoons:

I remember couple years back when La Nina had a severe effect on the PI there was a very strong (almost super) typhoon that hit Northern Luzon during mid May. I happened to be up north that time and the locals said that it's not that common...

Just remembered, it was El Nino back then and not La Nina... Maybe the frequent rains in november and december 2011 in northern Luzon were La Nina? Don't know...

Summer time in the Philippines is April and May, unlike for example the USA where it's June through August.

 

Typhoon season in the Philippines coincides with the rainy season (June-December), not summer (April-May).

You are correct. I refered to the "American summer" as does the question on that website: "Why do tropical cyclones occur primarily in the summer and autumn?"

 

As it is explained on that site...

 

 

While one would intuitively expect tropical cyclones to peak right at the time of maximum solar radiation (late June for the tropical Northern Hemisphere and late December for the tropical Southern Hemisphere), it takes several more weeks for the oceans to reach their warmest temperatures. The atmospheric circulation in the tropics also reaches its most pronounced (and favorable for tropical cyclones) at the same time. This time lag of the tropical ocean and atmospheric circulation is analogous to the daily cycle of surface air temperatures - they are warmest in mid-afternoon, yet the sun's incident radiation peaks at noon.

During the aftermath of super typhoon Yolanda there was a significant amount of discussion going around about weather being modified. This was allegedly for political reasons. A sort of Jim Carey moment.

 

A patent has been issued, I believe in the mid 1980s for such a technology.

 

The technology is covered under US Patent 4,686,605 on the “Method and Apparatus for Altering a Region in the Earth’s Atmosphere, Ionosphere, and/or Magnetosphere.”

 

This link is just one of many describing the concept.

No, I don't have foil hats when traveling outside my faraday cafe home.

 

I just like the comment attributed to Mark Twain about how so many complain but few do anything about the weather.

Not trying to be pedantic here, just helpful...

 

There have been 36 February typhoons in the Northwest Pacific since 1900.

 

Notable are:

 

Typhoon Nancy which battered Samar and Catanduanes in February,1970 .

 

Super typhoon Mitag which formed in February 2002 (but actually peaked in March) petered out before reaching d'Phils.

 

And most recently February 2015's typhoon Higos which turned poleward east of the Marianas.

 

Last year, 2016, the typhoon season got off to a slow start and the first named storm (Nepartak) didn't form until early July and then affected mostly Taiwan and mainland China.

 

Executive summary: "Ya never know!".

      Citizens of 40 countries traveling to Vietnam now have a simplified process for obtaining travel visas directly from the Vietnam government. Vietnam recently introduced an e-Visa (electronic visa) application system for citizens of 40 countries. Vietnam e-Visas will allow citizens of these 40 countries to visit Vietnam for up to 30 days. The 40 countries included in the Vietnam e-Visa program are Armenia, Argentina, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Brunei, Bulgaria, Chile, China, Columbia, Czech Republic, Cuba, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Kazakhstan, Luxembourg, Mongolia, Myanmar, Norway, Panama, Peru, Philippines, Poland, Romania, Russia, Slovakia, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Timor Leste, United Kingdom, United States, Uruguay and Venezuela. This new two-year, e-Visa pilot program will be in addition to the current Vietnam travel visa processes in place. Holders of the new Vietnam e-Visas will be allowed to arrive into Vietnam through any of the eight international airports including Noi Bai - Hanoi City, Tan Son Nhat - Ho Chi Minh City, Da Nang - Da Nang City, Cam Ranh - Nha Trang City, Cat Bi - Hai Phong City, Can Tho - Can Tho City, Lien Khuong – Da Lat City and Phu Quoc - Phu Quoc Island or through any of the 13 international land border crossings. Vietnam e-Visas will cost you a flat fee of $25 USD for a 30-day, SINGLE-ENTRY visa. Your 30 days will start when you arrive into Vietnam, not when your e-Visa is approved. This visa will only be valid for a single entry into Vietnam for up to 30 days, meaning you can’t fly into Vietnam, stay for a few days, travel to Cambodia and then return to Vietnam for your flight back to your country. You can only enter Vietnam once. If you need a multiple-entry visa or want to stay in Vietnam for longer than 30 days, you can apply at www.visavietnam.ph . It is fast, cheap, easy and reliable. Vietnam e-Visa application process You will need a scanned copy of your valid passport details page and a scanned passport photo. According to the website instructions, the passport photo must be “straight looking and without glasses.” I’m assuming this means looking forward at the camera and without a smile (and nothing to do with your sexual orientation). You can apply online for a Vietnam e-Visa through this website: https://evisa.xuatnhapcanh.gov.vn/web/guest/trang-chu-ttdt. Please follow the steps below: 1.    Click on “For Foreigners.” 2.    Upload your passport photo and a copy of your passport details page. These are two separate uploads. You can’t upload your passport details page twice. 3.    Enter in all the required information. 4.    Pay your $25 USD fee and submit your application. Your fee is non-refundable even if your application is later denied. 5.    Once you have submitted your application, you will receive a “registration code.” Keep this code. 6.    At the time of this posting, the e-Visa turnaround time is approximately 3 business days. After the processing time, return back to the website and click on “Search” in the top menu bar. 7.    Enter in your registration code to search for your application to see if it was approved. 8.    If approved, you can print out your Vietnam e-Visa as proof for travel. I know this sounds a little complicated but trust me, this Vietnam e-Visa process is much simpler than the uncertainty and hoops we used to jump through. We no longer have to deal with third-party companies for visa approval letters or mail in our passports to the Vietnam consulate offices. Overall, this is a win-win for citizens of 40 countries. Travelers and it’s a step in the right direction. I’m hoping that multiple-entry visas and longer term visas will be added to this system if it proves to be successful. Disclaimer: Please understand this is a pilot program so there might be some glitches along the way. I have not personally applied for a Vietnam e-Visa through this process so I can’t test out how reliable it is. If any of our readers has any feedback or real life experiences with obtaining a Vietnam e-Visa, please share them with us in the comments section below. Thanks for reading! PhilipJ

      Took a trip down to Ho Tong Hardware to search for the NPT tap and dies that I needed. Turned out that they didn't have any in stock, but I'm not sure that the surly lady that helped me actually understood what I was looking for. A very different experience from Belmont Industrial!
