HAGUPIT/Ruby – 900 hPa – EXTREME !!!
Super Typhoon HAGUPIT/Ruby’s central is going down to incredible 900 hPa !!! Only 5 hPa from HAIYAN/Yolanda. The forward speed is slowing down from 31 to 20 km/h. Beware of this extremely catastrophic cyclone!
The Multi Agency Forecast
The US Navy went a bit south-west, the Asian agencies moved a bit north and PAGASA stays somewhere in the middle. Choose your favorite track! Nobody knows at this moment. This is really the silliest situation I’ve experienced in the last 7 years.
The JMA track forecast
JMA moves north a notch. Bohol isn’t menaced directly anymore. Negros could also escape of the worst impact. But southern Samar, Leyte, Cebu and probably Panay will get hit violently. The size of the bold red 50 kt = 90 km/h wind area is very large.
