This blog has more readership than our typhoon blog, so I am posting a notice here to make sure the maximun number of readers see it:
+ FORECAST OUTLOOK: KROSA is expected to continue moving NW’ly towards Northern Taiwan throughout the weekend. The 3 to 5-day forecast shows KROSA becoming an extremely catastrophic Category 5 Super Typhoon with winds reaching 260 km/hr tomorrow morning, Oct 05. The eye shall reach the northeastern coast of Taiwan Sunday morning with a sudden slow in its NW track. It shall pass very close to Taipei, Taiwan Sunday after- noon, Oct 7 (approx 3 PM HK Time), with a close distance of 55 km to the east. Upon its closest approach to Taiwan, KROSA shall be downgra- ded to a Category 4 (220 kph) Typhoon and shall continue losing strength as it bears down the coast of SE China on Monday & Tuesday (Oct 8-9) due to land interaction, increasing wind shear and dry air over mainland China.
Please note the use of the words “extremely catastrophic” in this forecast!
