Francisco

Since there is no obvious way for weather to cause weather, one has to wonder where Francisco came from. …

Since it is illogical to presume that such a storm could be instigated by volcanoes or earthquakes and the sea on the days leading up to the super-typhoon’s convergence was covered in cloud -and of course is still covered in cloud, but much thicker stuff, you have to wonder where such energy comes from.

Suppose the streams of water we call the currents of the sea change direction, radically, before such a storm ensues.
Suppose that the energy causing such a change also causes the velocity of the water to increase.

How much would it have to increase in order to produce cavitation?
And most wanted of all desirable traits; would it explain the behaviour of tropical storms in general?

Which brings us to Francisco; from the above links it will be a Cat 4 typhoon for four days.

“AT 18:00, TYPHOON 26W (FRANCISCO) WAS LOCATED NEAR 13.8N. 142.3E, APPROXIMATELY 152 Nautical Miles WEST OF ANDERSEN Air Force Base, GUAM, AND HAD TRACKED NORTHWESTWARD AT 07 KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. MAXIMUM SUSTAINED SURFACE WINDS WERE ESTIMATED AT 120 KNOTS GUSTING TO 145 KNOTS.”

Where does that kind of power come from?
And how long can it be maintained?

20 Oct. 4 130 kts
21 Oct. 4 115 kts
22 Oct. 3 100 kts
23 Oct. 1 75 kts

4 days?
Why only four days?
Because it hits land?
But it dies before it reaches land. It is only a Cat 1 by the 23rd.
But how did it (or will it, rather) lose 55 knots?

Because it hits land?
Hardly.
It is still a wild wind at a Cat 1. What it has lost is something from the ocean depth AND IT IS NOT HEAT.

  1. As will happen with every severe storm at sea or/and in devastating flood spells on land, the volcanic activity of the planet increases.As a signal that something of that sort is about to happen, the various weather charts can often demonstrate the following anomaly:Usually the behaviour is corrected out of the presentation, I imagine, as it is not a feature of all charts. But if you observe the behaviour of the cyclone that dominates the North Atlantic in this run, you see that the centre falls apart and that the various components in it rotate about each other.Not only that but they are going against the grain of cyclonic behaviour in the northern hemisphere in that they are rotating about each other in an anticlockwise direction.Don't forget to check out this page for an update on volcanic activity.

  2. Blast!I forgot to mention the fronts that portray thunder. These black arcs are also always present when volcanic activity occurs.It should be possible to pinpoint the likely region of volcanic activity in the future by matching the fronts with "whatever" activity. Of course a lot depends on almost exactly the same set up occurring with the next thundery spell that matches it.By that I mean that in this case where thunder fronts appear on the chart as in this case over Britain, the eruptions that take place with recur in the same volcano with the next time we have the same thundery set up.So to it should be whichever volcano blew the last time we had thunder in Britain. But what would I know about that?I don't even believe in Plate Tectonics.

    Should read:"I forgot to mention the fronts that portray thunder. These black arcs are also always present > in the North Atlantic charts < when volcanic activity occursincreases anywhere on the planet, as far as I know." (Which isn't far.)
