La Nina's last hurrah pushes our dry season further towards a later part.
More rains this week!:eek:hno:




Originally its like this in most areas of the Philippines:

Monsoon Season (Wet): May to November
Dry Season: December to April

but it seems like this one is happening for the past 3 or 4 years

Monsoon Season (July - February)
Dry Season (March - June)

the oscillation of La Nina and El Nino hasn't yet reached a stable neutral season for the Pacific

BACOLOD TORNADO
March 29, 2012






screenshots from my video I took at the back of the hospital.

Take note that those debris aren't small bits only but whole sheets of galvanized iron and meter-wide wood panels.

not sure what to make out of that pic doc... looks totally rain wrapped, unless that was taken after it passed??:dunno:

you can kinda see the inflow though and the sinking air especially on the last pic...

anyway, Pakhar rapidly intensified this morning and is now a 65-kt Typhoon per the JTWC... IR representation is pretty poor so here's a MWI instead to give us an idea...



:cheers:

actually the closest distance the tornado from my spot is approximately 300-400 meters. But when I shot the pic it has already crossed the creek and kinda dissipated. But I really appreciated a funnel of rotating debris when I first saw it from the window in our basement.

When I got to the parking lot I took cover at the oxygen tank storeroom before I started shooting.

Here's a link to the video I took;

The 2011–12 La Niña reaches its end

Issued on Tuesday 27 March | Product Code IDCKGEWWOO

The 2011–12 La Niña event has ended, with key indicators returning to neutral (neither El Niño nor La Niña) levels. Climate models surveyed by the Bureau of Meteorology suggest that neutral conditions will persist until at least early winter.

Key Pacific Ocean indicators are now at neutral levels, with values similar to those last seen in August 2011. Likewise, atmospheric indicators such as cloudiness, trade winds and the Southern Oscillation Index (SOI) have also returned to near-normal values for this time of year. Despite the 2011–12 La Niña not commencing until far later than normal (spring), the decline has been fairly typical of past events, with a peak in January and a return to neutral conditions during autumn.

The demise of the La Niña does not mean the risk of wet conditions (or tropical cyclones) over Australia has ended. While sea surface temperatures around the continent remain warmer than normal and the tropical wet season is active, there remains a risk of above average rainfall over Australia.

The Indian Ocean Dipole (IOD) has limited influence on Australian rainfall from December through to April. Neutral IOD conditions are forecast for the southern hemisphere winter.

sa tingin ko maliit ang posibilidad na magkaroon ng mapaminsalang tsunami dahil kompara sa lindol nuong Dec 2004, ang galaw ng lupa ngayon ay horizontal at hindi vertical kagaya sa nangyari nung unang malakas na lindol so ngayon parang nausog lang sya at hindi yung umangat na mas delikado dahil prone to generate strong tsunamis.
