Typhoons 2018


#821

“”“Experts”"" ?


#822

The official phrase is so-called @#“experts”#$%


#823

“Anonymous experts familiar with the matter”, I see.

Ampil may grow to be a typhoon, but it’s more likely to stay within tropical storm limits.

There’s one invest near Guam, but it’s basically an embryo.


#824

Whatever happened to that Wrncen thing? Would have loved to hear the news weather(wo)men struggle with the pronunciation.


#825

No relevant news: Ampil upgraded to severe tropical storm but seems to be set to ignore us, some invests forming in the middle of nowhere and that’s it.


#826

Might get a bit of rain over the weekend. Might.


#827

I don’t want.


#828

But Sunday is not looking so bad now. I hope the rain on Saturday drives the crowds away at the outdoor pool where I’ll be (and I hope the lightning stays away!).


#829

meh, no happening gifs this time


#830


#831

Hello tropical depression 98W, nice to meet you!


#832

not expected to be very strong, but possibly some good amounts of rain


#833

Already got all-day mahjong plans for tomorrow. Ain’t gonna rain on my parade!


#834

Very windy today, the tropical depression brought some fresh air here.

Ampil is going to rek Shanghai a bit today and tomorrow.

Nothing relevant building up in the ocean, just some stuff that may go to Japan.


#835

Wait until my depression is fully developed, never seen anything like it!


#836

As a non-native english speaker, i’m always thinking of something like this:


#837

Spare a thought for everyone going to Fuji Rock Festival this weekend. Typhoon set to hit bang on Saturday night.


#838

Based on the wunderground forecast, it seems that Jongdari—referenced above by the_bear—wants to attend the Festival too:

Guy


#839

Japan getting the double-trouble treatment in the coming days.

Jondari has very good chances of growing into a typhoon. Wukong…ehhh…not so much.


#840

These (possible) typhoons sound like they could be monsters in the Godzilla universe alongside Mothra and Gamera.
