Well, the typhoon has moved on supposedly, but it's like it's just started in Taidong. Huge rain since early this morning. 250 mil in Taimali in a few hours and still pouring.
Seems there is a system over the northern PPE and maybe the tail of Megi is sucking that into Taidong.
It's interesting that this season, apart from Nepartak, there weren't a lot of typhoons forming early on, and most of the activity seemed to be forming much further north than where it usually happens. A couple of TD's even formed north of Taipei, which i've never seen before.
I wonder if that was a result of the sea-surface temps being so warm this year that the Inter Tropical Convergence Zone moved to an extreme northern position.
As the season has gone on, the ITCZ has oscillated back to a more traditional level and that's resulted in a burst of late-season typhoons. It may well be that this season could drag on right through October.
