On June 2017, Another Typhoon Might Directly Hit Philippines
Another typhoon might directly hit the Philippines by June 2017, according to the report of an American media weather forecaster.
On Wednesday (May 17, 2017), Dan Kottlowski, an AccuWeather tropical weather expert reported that the high-pressure system’s circulation is expected to bring heat waves across Japan and northeastern China that could cause the formation of cyclone near the country.
“Should El Niño develop quickly and become stronger than anticipated, the number of tropical storms and typhoons could be significantly higher as ocean waters in the prime development areas are much warmer than average,” said by Kottlowski quoted by MSN.
The warm phase of sea surface temperature that changed over the tropical Pacific is called El Niño. When the ocean water gets warmer rather than its average temperature it can trigger the buildup and intensifies the tropical cyclones, according to Kottlowski.
AccuWeather meteorologist Adam Douty explained that the overall numbers of significant weather systems might hit southeastern China, Vietnam, Taiwan, and east of the Philippines.
The possibility of overall numbers of storms, typhoons, and super typhoons to hit the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) was slightly higher than last year. There are 27 tropical storms, 16 typhoons, and 7 supertyphoons from June to September 2017 will enter the Philippines, according to AccuWeather forecast.
An average of 22 tropical cyclones every year visits the Philippines and 9 of these make landfall. 6 out of 22 significant impacts requires relief efforts.
