Typhoon Hagupit

A new tropical storm has formed, far out to the east of the Philippines. The centre is pretty well defined but convection is currently being sheared to the southwest of the LLC. However, shear is expected to ease, sea temps will remain warm and outflow will improve as an anticyclone settles to the north of the system. Because of this, 18W is expected to become a typhoon prior to landfall in Luzon, in around three days time. Tracking may obviously change but this is the current scenario forecast be both the JTWC and the JMA.

18W has been upgraded to Tropical Storm Hagupit, with an intensity of 40kts. Convection has become more concentrated over the centre as shear eases. Luzon could well have a pretty strong typhoon next week to deal with, as conditions are expected to be favourable. JTWC are forecasting Hagupit to be a 105kt, cat 3 typhoon by 120hrs in the vicinity of Luzon and Taiwan. One to watch.

Hagupit is spinning up very nicely, now at 50kts. Banding features are very good and further quick strengthening is antipated as Hagupit is move over some really hot waters now (in excess of 30C) and shear is expected to remain low. Could be a typhoon as early as tomorrow morning if organisational trends continue.

Hagupit has only gained 5kts in intensity today, and has been affected by moderate northerly shear. The LLC has been partially exposed at times, however, banding features have remained good and now convection is firing up over the centre again. Intensity forecasts are now not as agressive as earlier due to the moderate shear, but this shouldn't stop Hagupit slowly intensifying. Hagupit may pass northeast of Luzon, but it's likely to bring some severe weather nonetheless. Next stop China? Still uncertain at the moment so needs watching.

Cheers Cookie.

Interesting to note the higher landfall probabilties in Taiwan than China. This corresponds with a possible recurve scenario (Hagupit moving northeastwards) but at the moment I think a continued northwestwards heading towards China is more likely as the subtropical steering ridge to the north remains strong and should block a poleward turn IMO. Who knows though? We all know how unpredictable tropical cyclones are! :doh:

Intensity has been increased to 60kts and looking at satellite imagery I think Hagupit will be upgraded to a typhoon this afternoon has an eye is now emerging. Further strengthening is likely with ocean heat content and sea surface temps being high, shear decreasing and outflow remaining good. Track has bent slightly to the left (or south) again with landfall near Hong Kong. However, as JTWC notes, any further southwards shift in response to the stronger ridge to the north will keep Hagupit over water longer and will cause landfall in Hainan Island or the east coast of Vietnam instead.

wp200818_5day.gif

As I mentioned earlier, an eye is also appearing. This is indicative of Hagupit being very near typhoon status if it's not already. Certainly looks a lot better than yesterday with a lot more convection tightly wound around the centre and a more symmetrical look to the storm too with convection fairly evenly distributed. This could be a sign that the northerly shear affecting Hagupit yesterday is easing, therefore intensification may be a little faster over the next 48 hours than the previous 24. Beyond 72 hours, land interaction will significantly weaken Hagupit causing dissipation in 120 hours. As I noted earlier though, this is largely dependent on eventual track and any southwards jog will mean Hagupit will be over water longer, and consquently will delay final dissipation of the system.

Hagupit is now a 65kt, cat 1 typhoon. The forecast hasn't changed and landfall is still progged to be around Hong Kong as a cat 1. Hagupit is forecast to peak at cat 3 but should weaken prior to landfall primarily due to decreased ocean heat content near the coast of China.

could this system cause a lot of damage and death?

The potential is always there with any tropical cyclone, obviously the stonger generally means more danger but as we all know even weak systems can kill particularly if they hit a vunerable area. The area has already been hit by Neoguri, Nuri, Kammuri and Fengshen so Hong Kong really could be doing without this one but the area is used to landfalling tropical cyclones. That's not to say death and damage can be avoided though.

As I mentioned earlier, shear has eased over Hagupit and it now seems like the typhoon is intensifying more rapidly. The eye is becoming better defined and intensity has been increased to 75kts. JTWC expect a peak of 100kts but this may be conservative. I wouldn't like to say just how high Hagupit will go but ingredients are there for something a little stornger possibily. Track forecast hasn't changed with landfall near Hong Kong the most likely option.

this system is over the philippines

It's actually just north of the Philippines but yes, hurricane force winds are being experienced there currently. Hagupit has continued to strengthen today and is now a cat 3 with an intensity of 100kts. As to whether it will become a super typhoon? Unlikely I reckon, as outflow is becoming restricted, shear is increasing and ocean heat content is lessening. Hong Kong still in the firing line for a cat 1 hit.

Hagupit has continued to move west-northwestwards towards Hong Kong. Intensity has increased to 105kts and it looks like Hagupit may be stronger at landfall now as the predicted weakening has not yet materialised. Hagupit is a large system with a lot of rain attached to it, the situation does not look good for Southern China. Hagupit is forcast to drag it's heels across the coastline which could cause some very large rainfall totals, not to mention wind damage at first. Hainan Island is also likely to experience some severe weather in the next few days. Hagupit may weaken to a remnant low by the time it reaches Northern Vietnam but it may still cause heavy rainfall here.

Indeed, Hagupit looks like it has begun weakening now as predicted. Will probably be a cat 2 at landfall I reckon which will occur late tonight or early tomorrow our time.

Thanks for that image Opplevelse, certainly shows the deterioration well.

Hagupit has battled the dry air and has strengthened against all odds. Hagupit's impressive outflow has enabled him to mix out the dry air the typhoon was ingesting from China. The eye looks much more defined and intensity has been increased to 120kts, making Hagupit an extremley dangerous category 4 typhoon. The southern coast of China, Hainan Island and even Northern Vietnam should be bracing themselves for Hagupit's arrival. As you can see in the sat pic below, the eye is not far off the coast and powerful winds and torrential rains are already being felt inland.
