The Thai Meteorological Department reported on Thursday (September 17) that tropical storm Noul, with sustained winds of 80 kilometres per hour, was expected intensify and make landfall between the cities of Hue and Da Nang in central Vietnam.

 

It will then hit the North and Northeast of Thailand over the weekend, and further strengthen with southwest monsoon winds across the Andaman Sea.

 

Torrential rain and strong winds are expected to lash the Northeast, before moving on to the North, Central, East and South.

 

People in risky areas have been warned of flash floods and runoffs, while generally the public has been told to avoid large trees and insecure buildings.

Wow nice ... but ... where does this picture of perfectly formed typhoon is from ... Typhoon Noul from 2005 maybe ... but not the one we are following ...

This kind of eyes is implicit of much more than 80km wing force !

This is what it looks like now, courtesy of Kochi University.

PS : and this is not a CAT3 or CAT5 typhoon, but a tropical storm, moving closely but surely to a Cat1 Typhoon maybe in north Vietnam.

What a brilliant website. And according to its trajectory, it's heading straight for us. Yikes!

Right over my house by the looks of it.. the wind speed doesn't appear to be extreme but I expect some heavy rain.. the bad news is we live in a low lying area..

Actually it's lost intensity, previously it had been expected to reach a category 1 typhoon, or in an earlier Thai report category 5. Current prediction is it won't develop beyond a tropical storm.

 

Still worth bringing the washing in, but maybe not battening down the shutters.

Ventusky has great graphics but its not very accurate due to the "modelling" they use, not as pretty but far more accurate is https://www.windy.com/-Rain-thunder-rain?rain,17.382,102.799,11 , they also have it heading my way so best start tying stuff down! :shock1:

We need the rain!
