Discussing the intricacies of the weather is something that is best confined to consenting adults - i get that - but as i can’t find enough of those in real life, i thought i would try here.
Obviously, typhoons are the headline grabbers, but for those into the nitty gritty of all the other weather that Taiwan throws up, then it would be great if you could contribute.
Anyway, Taidong, and other parts of Taiwan, are currently going through an extreme dry spell. I’d love to know what the record is (can’t find the stats), but we are now over 7 weeks without rain. The longest i’ve seen it go without rain before is 3 weeks. And despite two typhoons making landfall in Taidong, we are down 500mm on the yearly rainfall ave.
