Huge Waves Already Appearing off Hualien Coast 中颱烟花路徑稍偏北 週五.六最接近台灣

Typhoon In-Fa is moving slower than anticipated and will be closest to Taiwan on July 23 and 24. Even though it's not likely to make a landfall, experts say its storm circle could sweep across northern Taiwan.
 


With Typhoon In-Fa approaching, 2-meter-high waves have already been spotted off the coast of Hualien. In-Fa is the sixth typhoon of the year. It is currently south of Liuqiu and moving west-southwest at a speed of 11 kilometers per hour. Its route has shifted northward in the last 24 hours due to the weakening of the Pacific high-pressure system. In-Fa will be closest to Taiwan on 


Lin Ping-yu, Section Chief, Central Weather Bureau:" We expect to issue a sea warning tonight and a land warning tomorrow afternoon or evening. The storm will most likely affect northern and northeastern Taiwan."

The current water temperature could help In-Fa develop further into a severe typhoon. One expert says it is unlikely the eye of In-Fa will make landfall, but its storm circle could sweep across northern Taiwan before returning to sea.

Peng Chi-ming, CEO, Weatherrisk:" The storm may still shift from its current path, but it'd be a stretch to say it may not make landfall in Taiwan. Of course, you can't rule anything out."

Weatherrisk says northern Taiwan will start getting rain from the evening of July 21 through July 22, with torrential rains forecasted for all areas of the north of central Taiwan and Yilan on July 23 and July 24.

 

 

 

一陣陣大浪侵襲,受到颱風外圍環流影響,花蓮漁港東提、七星潭等地,浪況比平時來得更劇烈,2米高長浪一波接著一波,今年第六號颱風烟花,目前在琉球南方海面,未來將以每小時11公里的速度,向西轉西南西的方向緩慢移動,不過,相較前一天,路徑稍微向北調整,氣象局表示,這是因為位在日本附近的太平洋高壓減弱導致,而週五、週六將會是最接近台灣的時候。

中央氣象局課長 林秉煜表示:「我們預估今天的海警,可能發布的時間,已經落在晚上,這段時間,那至於陸警,我們可能要在明天晚上,或下午的時候,才有機會發布。整體的路徑,可能涵蓋的範圍,在比較偏北台灣的部分,包含像東北部地區,和北部地區。」

由於目前海溫,有利"烟花"發展,颱風持續增強,氣象局表示,有可能達到"中颱上限",不過,有氣象專家則分析,颱風中心登陸機會不高,預估暴風圈將以"擦邊球"的方式,掃過北部沿海。

天氣風險管理開發總經理 彭啟明表示:「現在往台灣多一點點,或是往西北部多一點點。這個還是會有一點變化的空間,但是說要突然的大修,修到說,會不會登陸,其實是難度有點高,但還是不排除有這樣的機會。」

天氣風險氣象公司指出,晚間到週四,北台灣降雨將會越來越明顯、頻繁,而週五、週六,中部以北地區、宜蘭地區還會來到局部豪雨等級的雨量,只是,究竟烟花的路徑是否會再有變化,還有待觀察。
