(No longer SUPER) Typhoon Haima

What about the one that follows ?

 

 

That would be 94W and it has all the potential to be a real whopper.

 

Currently located around 7N 145E:

The GFS model has it at 884 mb (!) off the coast of Luzon by the middle of next week:

I know Sarika hasn't even made landfall yet but this next one in the pipeline could be a biggie and deserves some early attention.

 

Here's a satellite image from this morning showing both storms:

This is now Tropical Storm Haima (Chinese for seahorse!)

JTWC has it peaking @ 140 knots east of Luzon on Wednesday the 19th and a Cat 5 typhoon at landfall.:

It was nice to have a few rainy days as it gave me a good excuse to just be lazy. The rain filled all the rain barrels so we can get back on the concrete work again. I know other areas it caused hardships but there it was a much needed and welcome relief.

Thanks to BossHog’s posts, I can do one-stop checking of weather here, very handy… :) These weather charts and wind maps are very useful when you are on the ground, driving or boating… I decided to stay home today as a few occasional thundershowers associated with Saika were forecasted…

 

Anyway, for those white-knuckle flyers, here’s real-time SIGMET (Significant Meteorological information for all aircraft) https://skyvector.com/. You can google/bing for the decoding information (if you click the blue shaded area, you can read the SIGMET but in a coded format).

 

Suggest you use with the “World High” radio button on the upper right corner, this will overlay the most jet routes… You can tell, for instance, if you are going to Hong Kong, your seat belt sign would be ON probably for the first 30 min to 1 hour… likewise, if you are flying to Singapore, you should go to CR about 1 hour before landing… ;)

 

When Saika was over Luzon early this morning, airlines were still flying as they can avoid larger raindrops, turbulence visually (even at night if not in clouds), infrared (if installed) and by radar… For example since yesterday all flights (UA) to and from Guam were flying over Tacloban to avoid Saika (usually fly straight line over Jomalig Island), then using their onboard radar to safely land at/take off from NAIA… Fun to watch these things when I’m weathered in and sipping a glass of red wine… :D

Forecast hitting with 132 km/h

 

It's not uncommon to have 200+ knots head/tail wind but must be devastating for those on ground and at sea... ;)

"HAIMA is now a full-blown Typhoon as it continues to grow in size and strength…passing well to the north of  Yap in a slow northwesterly track.

 

This typhoon is forecast to enter the eastern border of the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) on Monday afternoon or evening (Oct 17) and will be named locally as “LAWIN.”

I think we'll just probably sleep through it like the last one recently.  :idontknow:

So, they are forecasting that this one will hit near Hong Kong? That could be awkward.
