Typhoon Paeng (Cimaron) expected to hit Casiguran


from Bushman’s typhoon blog:

CIMARON (Paeng) is expected to become a ty- phoon today and shall resume its WNW track for the next 24 to 36 hours. The center is forecast to pass well to the north of Bicol Region by Sunday (Oct 29), with its closest point of approach of approximately 290 km NNE of Naga City around 2 PM. The 2 to 4-day (Oct 30-Nov 1) long-range forecast shows CIMARON making landfall just to the north of Casiguran, Aurora or over the Sierra Madre Mountains early Monday morning (Oct 30) and shall weaken as it crosses Northern Luzon passing over the provinces of Aurora, Quirino, Southern Isabela, Nueva Vizcaya, Ifugao, Benguet & La Union. The center shall be over the South China Sea early Tuesday morning, Oct 31. Further weakening of CIMARON over the South China Sea is forecast due to poor atmospheric environment (cooler sea surface temperatures & increasing wind shear)

Today is sunny in Baler. The sun is scorching hot. It’s been rained for almost three days here until last night. The local weather god must have heard the news and is once again bent on destroying the credibility of the weather people from PAGASA. Lots of times when a typhoon or bad weather is predicted here in Baler, the weather would be good. But we learned our lessons and don’t take news like this for granted. If this forecast hits the nail, we’ll be having a rainy All Saints Day.
