Tropical Weather

Hurricane Hunter aircraft about to reach the eye of Hurricane Eta to provide an accurate picture of the storm's intensity, which has been thus far mainly estimated. I have been interested in tropical cyclones for a long time, and this is top 5, maybe even top 3 in terms of how horrifying it looks. All I can do is pray with and for the Nicaraguan people at this point.

So typhoon Rai is now Super Typhoon Rai again. After weakening to a category 2 after 9 (yes 9!) landfalls in the Philippines it has now undergone another rapid intensification in the South China sea and is currently Category 5. It's now the strongest typhoon ever for the month of December in the South China sea. However it will weaken rapidly as it curves northward and meets the Amihan (dry NE monsoon coming off the Asian content). Warmer than normal sst east of the Philippines and also in the south China sea had alot to do with the double rapid intensification as did lower pressure over the region, less vertical wind shear resulting in more convection, all associated with La Nina.
