Typhoon MAYSAK/Chedeng – the last hours?

Typhoon MAYSAK/Chedeng

Typhoon MAYSAK/Chedeng showed a really strange behavior today. It changed its cloud shape from the usual typhoon doughnut to a pear and then an inverse comma.  Being still a Typhoon Cat.2 it is continuing to loose its energy.

The colder waters over the northern Philippine Sea and the dryer air out-flowing from continental China deprived  Typhoon MAYSAK/Chedeng of its primary energy resources.  The cyclone is progressively decaying and will reach the northern Philippines on Sunday as a Tropical Storm.

The Forecast Tracks

Typhoon MAYSAK/Chedeng

Funny: The PAGASA forecast track (blue) seems to have a data glitch – or maybe MAYSAK wants to meet P-Noy himself 😉

The northern end of Luzon will have a wet to flooded Easter Sunday. Please get prepared, observe rivers and be aware of possible landslides.
