8-12“ , I’m rather jealous Rochester! Just be careful out there, we all know how people drive during the first big snow fall of the year.

Some geeking out today, discussing the history of “typhoon hunters” in the Western Pacific and why it would be nice if they came back!

Garage green screen setup.... I’m working on a video about typhoon recon in the western pacific today. It’s history and why it needs to come back.

6 years ago today super / devastated the city of & nearby towns in Samar as well as Cebu & beyond. My thoughts today are with all those who still bear the scars of this horrific storm

Also in this video. It's a decent behind the scenes of what these guys go through on storm chases.

Can't believe it was six years ago today I was watching one of the strongest storms on record make landfall in the central Philippines. This video is a first hand account of what people went through in Tacloban via

A nice 81 for the high today in Jacksonville Florida... yet I’m still missing the snow in Rochester. Hows the weather where you are?

Ya, “scrapped” may be a bad translation from their Japanese script. I bet someone will buy them eventually but given the damage they took Im sure they are worried about safety.

The train geek in me is shedding a tear today. Ten bullet trains are set to be scrapped along the Hokoriku line following Typhoon Hagibis.

I’m surprised you didn’t respond to my tweets on it.. on the other hand I think JMA and JTWC handled it well. Maybe a bit conservative but I can understand why you wouldn’t go crazy on a fish storm with little impact on anyone.

I been saying is a fish storm, but does look like some shipping traffic needs to kick the gas on out ahead of it. It’s going to be a bumpy ride.

looking absolutely beautiful in the North West Pacific. Unless you are a ship lost out here No one will take a direct impact from it.

I should be specific and say 24th named storm in the western pacific.

The 24th named storm of the year has developed West of the Philippines. Tropical Storm Nakri ( Queil in PH) and at this time starting to get better organized but I don’t expect to become a full blown typhoon. More so a big rain maker for Luzon and Vietnam.

Thanks for that, not sure why I had 180mph stuck in my head. I just deleted and fixed.
