  5. Live storm tracking with Google Earth in future videos featured on this Blog. The application will be used to show the exact center of the storm in real time.

    here is the explanation so you may try.

    Now, Typhoon Storm Watch 2012 will use Google Earth, the pinpoint the exact, 100% accurate, live location of the storm.

    TSW2012's NEW method:

    I move my mouse over the center of the storm on Google Earth, with "weather on"
    Google Earth than shows the coordinates of where my mouse it, in which the center of the storm.

    Compared, with JTWC, or JMA's live coordinates of the storm, it shows the storms's center of circulation very differently.

    Please share you views about this new thing!

    1. Thank You. I'm sorry if the information isn't updated frequent enough, but i'll guarantee you that information in this blog is reliable.
      For example: I predicted 3 tropical systems to form in the western northpacifc the result: Almost accurate, however the new storm: Tropical Storm Rumbia just formed a few days ago, just a few days away from July, so my forecast wasn't so bad at all.

    1. A Tropical Disturbance is expected to develop in the Philippine sea by August 24, and has a 70% chance of becoming a Tropical Depression, and is currently expected to move slowly northwards, only brushing the eastern part of the Philippines with winds of 30km/h. For the whole of Philippines, no significant change in weather is expected, however the disturbance could intensify into a TD or TS, and even if it doesn't impact the Philippines, it's clouds will, and it could enhance rain-bringing thunderstorms across central Philippines.

    2. Thank you so much for your immediate response i really appreciate it. I will be monitoring your site from time to time this is really awesome!! :)

    3. At the start of September, A Tropical Storm should form in the Philippine sea, and may directly impact northern Philippines. Even if not, it will bring slightly windier weather and rain to the Philippines.

      Delete
    4. Hi TSW, will there be a south westmonsoon seen as well? because last week (august 18-20) we had a TS but not that strong, the problem is the TS is impacting the south west monsoon, that gave a big impact to us like floodings everywhere and gave 3 days of heavy rains. Thanks for the update.

      Delete
    5. Yes, TS Kong-rey 14w, is already pulling rain, and thunder-bringing convection across the Philippines from the South China sea. This is a enhanced southwest monsoon.

  14. Very good site,what are your pedictions on the potential storm next week(16th sep),I noticed your report has downgraded the system becoming a major typhoon(no more mention of a it becoming a cat 5) Do u think it will vear up towards japan or head west towards the Philippines or will it dissapate,thanks

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. It should not affect the Philippines, and should intensify into a category 1 or two typhoon before hitting Japan. The computer model also shows that a new system could form afterwards, and it should head towards Taiwan, brushing the Philippines with a bit more than usual rain.
      But I cannot always be 100% sure.

      Delete
  15. Thanks for the update,Any speed or direction on that new storm would be much appreciated in the coming days,By the look of the cloud formation,it looks like it could be a fairly large system,hope it stays in the ocean

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Yep, it would be available when the Japan Meteorological Agency certifies the system as a Tropical Depression.
      And it is completely wrong to judge the size of a storm by looking at it when it is still developing.
      An example was Typhoon Jelawat of 2013. Jelawat was originally a small tropical depression about the size of two Taiwans.
      But in the end, it became a roaring, powerful super typhoon which brushed the Philippines.
      But the latest GFS computer model run has shown that it will become a fairly large and strong typhoon, possibly reaching category 4 status. But it always changes. Maybe it may be stronger or weaker, maybe it will hit Japan, or China.

  16. Such a useful site and so simply illustrated. Leaving London for Hanoi tomorrow (rain to heavy rain?) and then to Taiwan. Thanks for your hard work.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. It's sunny in Hanoi, with a few scattered showers. But for Taiwan, while it is currently sunny, the GFS computer model is now forecasting the weak system, named Invest 93w will become a category 2 typhoon that will hit Taiwan, before hitting southern China by September 18~19, bringing heavy rain and strong winds.
      And by that time, all air flights will be cancelled.
      But it is hard to say whether or not if it is really gonna happen.
      Your replies and comments are very much appreciated.

  17. Hi there.So do you think this next storm will not vear north to japan but head west towards taiwan at only cat 2? Any idea wether it will move fast or is it a slow storm? The forecast has certainly changed on this storm cell over the past few days. Any speed and direction would be apprecited

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. It will be a slightly fast storm, and should have an average speed of 25km/h in it's lifetime, and may reach 30km/h. You see, typhoons move, because they are being pushed by trade winds. And if the trade winds is strong, the typhoon moves faster. So if the eye of a Typhoon is moving at 25km/h, that means that the trade winds is blowing at 25km/h too.

      But in some cases where typhoons don't move much at all, or even become stationary, due to a lack of steering flow, which often causes their field of circulation to become much larger, making it further stationary. A good example was Tropical Storm Talas of 2011 which at one time, managed to be completely stationary for 24hours!

  18. Hi there.whats your prediction on this next storm forming up regarding speed,direction and intensity,do u think its going to form quickly and shoot north like the last one?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. It should intensify into a category 3 or 4 typhoon before hitting Taiwan. The system is already starting to develop in the Philippine sea within that trough of low pressure we have been looking at for the past 2 days.

    1. Expect winds of 50km/h by September 23, and winds of 80km/h or more by late September 23.
      The weather will gradually deteriorate, and you should expect strong winds, and heavy showers.

      Stay safe dear!

  24. Just wondering.. could pabuk now that it has become an annular typhoon, maintain a more northern course and actually make a landing in japan or are the course predictions on him still good?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. No no no, it is moving northeast, and a Anticyclone northeast of the system should steer Pabuk northeast, before becoming a extratropical cyclone.
      And remember a annular typhoon means that the system has become more rounder in shape, and is almost devoid of outer cloud bands. Annular typhoons typically also have a large eye.

  26. I would like to know whether the ageing monsoon would bring more strong wind and rain to my area in these next few days? I have a deep sea fishing trip that I will go to.

    1. Although the monsoon is ageing, it is being enhanced by Tyohoon Wutip, far north of Borneo, meaning you can expect wind speeds of 5-20km/h and heavy rain with some thunderstorms.
      If there is really a thunderstorm, it will bring gust up to 60km/h or more.

    1. The final decision is yours to make. What I do know is that if you do get to Tokyo, light to heavy rain will affect Tokyo by October 25, and all the rainy and windy weather will stop by late October 26, and October 27 should be sunny as a High pressure area quickly moves into Japan.
      So, I would say it is okay to go to Japan, but stay safe from the rain, cold, radiation, and wind.
      Why would the typhoon affect Tokyo for such a short period of time? Because of it's speed.
      By the time it nears Japan, it should be moving at 30+km/h.

I plot the course as possibly hitting north of Panay, even swiping Boracay, Saturday 9th evening time on current velocity, but winds for iloilo city could be severe if catogory 3, let alone 4.

    1. Boracay island, will see winds of 200km/h with heavy squally showers and there will be swells and large waves in the sea on late November 8.

  34. This is bad, very bad Typhoon Haiyan is nothing to joke about. I believe that if you can you should get out of the impact area ASAP! The winds will extend much further out then what you are thinking. With the course it is going northern Surigao the south side of the storm will get hit just as hard as Samar and Leyte. And for sure this is not good for the people in Bohal.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. No, there was literally no typhoon in your area. And Typhoon Haiyan did not affected your area, and your region will never be affected by any typhoon because it is close to the equator.
      Satellite imagery on that day showed that it was partly cloudy in the morning and thunderstorms rapidly formed by late afternoon, and strong thunderstorms can cause strong wind and downpours.
      All that weather was nothing to do with Haiyan.

  39. Hi. Thank you for this site. Glad I found this site. I am from Tagbilaran City, Bohol, Philippines. My family still have trauma & phobia of the 7.2 magnitude earthquake that hits Bohol. Few days ago, the typhoonYolanda attached central visayas. Is there anyincoming typhoons that would hit central visayas after Yolanda? We are already scared & we wanted to be ready. Do u have the exact location on which area the storm fall? I have read some post from fb that there's still 6-7 strong typhoon coming. Is that true? Highly appreciated if u can give me the details. Thank u so much for ur help.

    1. Yep there's another cyclonic system heading towards southern philippines, but this one is much weaker---a Tropical Depression with winds of only 30-55km/h. It will affect your area by tonight and will end by November 13. Expect heavy rain, showers thunderstorms, and moderate to strong winds.

    3. No , In fact Zoraida has already passed over the Philippines and has entered the South China Sea. And I overall do not expect strong typhoons to hit the philippines for the rest of this month, though I am not 100% certain.

    1. No Zoraida's circulation center will not directly hit Tagbilaran City, but will bring cloudy weather with squally rain and possibly some thunderstorms. Expect winds of 20km/h to 40kmh/ in Tagbilaran City, so overall there isn't much to worry about as Zoraida is a weak storm.

  47. Hi. Good day! I am so worried with the typhoon Kajiki. My home town Bohol-Philippines is signal #2 now. My family is living at Tagbilaran City. Due to previous typhoon especially like typoon Haiyan, people nowadays paranoid & scared of hearing typhoon. PAGASA says areas under signal #s 1 & 2 should prepare for possible flash floods & landslides. Those living in coastal areas under signal # 2 warned of possible storm surges. I am so worried. How is Tagbilaran City, Bohol- Philippines status for this floods & storm surges?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Don't expect a storm surge from Tropical Depression Kajiki, but with expected winds in Tagbilaran City to be at 30-45km/h, there will be swells in the sea. Expect moderate to heavy rain. This storm will not pose any threat either than the risk of slight flooding in southern Philippines. As 02w, Kajiki is moving fast, the cloudy and rainy weather will last for around 1-3 days. Don't be worried, as this storm is weak.
