The Taiwan Weather Thread 2017


#623

This is one long-arsed meiyu front

Could be a last flick back in the tail for northern Taiwan


#624

Buy gopherwood futures.


#625

Eeeeew, the rain out there is the kind that generates those big round bubbles when it hits standing water.
Someone told me once that it’s a sign of really low pH in the rain, anyone heard that before?


#626

Thunders! I hope it will not be raining after 6pm, I need to do some shopping 8(


#627

Worse. Tomorrow there is 40% chance of rain and it is Canada Day. :rant:


#628

tumbleweed


#629

Fuck Canada. But I had a ride scheduled for tomorrow morning :frowning:


#630

I don’t understand…which part is the bad one? 40% of rain? Or Canada day? Or the combination?


#631

The combination as it is an outdoor event. Most of the fun is sitting picnic style on the grass… which turns into a marsh when hit by rain. So they close it down.

Last year someone wrote something like “Saskatchewan exhibit” on the line closing the area off. Had me beaten for a while.


#632

Come to Daddy!

Hasn’t rained for weeks and my new pond is still empty - this might change that


#633

Forecast was just changed to 80% rain. Weather warning up, extremely heavy rain expected in central Taiwan, mountain areas, north, south, east, west… :noway:

Happy Canada Day, anyways.


#634

You… you… you…


#635

Weird looking radar image - like a snake

Pelting down here and big falls in Taijhong - over 50 mil per hour - which is damn good going considering CWB has them at 10% POP - south-west Taipei looks to be in the firing line as well

Sky looked very typhoony in Taidong today - clear as a bell and ominous clouds mustering


#636

Sooooo can I ride tomorrow number 7 direction WuLing farm? I was even thinking of keeping going to Taitung…


#637

Ran this morning with the sun beating down on me. It’s now a bit after 2 pm in the afternoon and it looks like night. The sun disappeared and Armageddon comes to mind.


#638

Guys Taipei looks outside just like tornado weather. Very weird rain, like hail.

Black, gloomy.

Any reports elsewhere?


#639

Holy shit!
Gale force out here, horizontal blowing sheets, construction and big trees blowing down all over the place


#640

That’s a nice lightning storm!


#641

My Taiwanese coworker said it looked like out of an horror movie, like The Omen. “Seems like Satan is coming out”, she said.

I was thinking about another movie, like Twister.
