Super-china-cells part II

:lol:

Didn't know whether to continue the old thread or open a new one. If I'm doing wrong pls any moderator tell me and I'll write everything there.

However, here we are with the next low pressure coming. Got heavy rain already started (in advance of 24 hours) this morning, with squalls and t-storms. Parameters looks very well in prospective, with a 95 kts jet increasing in speed.

This one is a tropical warm front, typical of this zone. After the front passed, there should be a period of break in the clouds allow the heat to build up. Well, not that now is missing... :lol: , just that it can be better. I record now 25°C/77°F with 89% (dew 23°C/73°F). Here the current storms:

Still raining hard....... this soaking rain is never going to end ??? Hope tomorrow the moderate/strong South sfc flow will give some clear and allow for some overheating...

:wink:
 
:shock:

Got a series of powerful squalls with very strong gusts and tons of rain since last night !!! The latest one was a bow that completeley hit me. The just in time to saw it, then the radar went out of service... :?

I'll post it as soon as it come back online.

:wink:

PS: another storm approaching from the west-southwest.
 
Wow, you're not kidding -- that's one hell of a squall! Is it always like that where you are in China, or is this kind of stuff unusual? Is it seasonal, or year round?

Thanks for keeping us all updated. This really is quite cool. :)

It is seasonal, let's say from March to October. From July onwards strongest storms come from the North and the East, with the ITCZ, while early the tropical jet drive them in a W-SW flow.

Anyway, this year seems is a bit more than the past two years.

:wink:
 
Another storm to the West, see this from the strikes :shock:

Should I be concerned that China is offering cooler radar products to their public than America is to theirs? :lol:

Really, that lightning product makes me jealous.

In fact I think is a private guy who is running it. Anyway, the HKO is the pilot promoter of the WMO, that's why Hong Kong is so "complete".

:wink:
 
Nothing to do. The airmass was too unstable for all day, it rain again for all day with almost continuous storms.

Yesterday lots of damages in Hong Kong for the wind gusts (measured well over hurricane force in some places, confirmed by a visual check of the damages. The containers' port has been severely damaged and many containers' piles overturned, some people also injuried).

Some data of the rain:
