Reply To: Stormy weather – Prapiroon – due for 3-5 August


Prapiroon now a typhoon; and (from around 4.20pm) Number 3 signal hoisted. Still seems headed towards Hainan/western Guangdong, but seems to have intensified faster, moved nearer Hong Kong today, than some forecasts – inc HK Observatory – predicted. Looks to be rather indistinct eye in latest satellite images.

Cheung Chau’s main waterfront – on west of the island – sheltered from the easterlies, but rainy this aft; albeit rain not bothering everyone. [img][/img]
