Typhoon Ulysses (International Name VAMCO): Hits Philippines With An Extending Tail To Alaska


Credits to Interaksyon. Typhoon Ulysses (international name Vamco) that hits the Philippines short-term on Thursday is by all accounts joined to a monster rope of mists and air that extended over the North Pacific and arriving at the opposite side of the world. The tail, notwithstanding, is a different wonder called a fixed front. Dr. Gerry Bagtasa, an air physicist and teacher, clarified that this climate front is framed when cold breezes from Siberia moving toward the south meet the warm and damp demeanor of the jungles during amihan season.

“Sometimes, the tip of this front affects the Philippines and is what PAGASA refers to as the ‘tail-end of a cold front,’ because only its tail-end affects us. The flooding in Claveria or Aparri around a week ago (or so) was due to this,” Bagtas wrote this email to Interaksyon.

“When Typhoon Ulysses moved westward, it seems that they are connected. The typhoon can form without the front and fronts can form without any typhoons, so they are independent,” he added.

At its pinnacle, Ulysses was pressing most extreme supported breezes of as much as 155 kilometers for every hour close to the middle and breeziness of up to 255 kph as it made a third landfall in General Nakar at 2 a.m.

The mountain scope of Sierra Madre barely decreased its hurricane status and advanced toward western Luzon and doused the locales of Metro Manila and Calabarzon.

British filmmaker and storm chaser James Reynolds likens it to a “umbilicus.” “The atmosphere never ceases to amaze!” he tweeted.

A fixed front is a cold or warm front that quit moving because of “two masses of air pushing against one another, yet nor is incredible enough to move the other,” as per the site of UCAR Center for Science Education.

“A stationary front may stay put for days. If the wind direction changes, the front will start moving again, becoming either a cold or warm front. Or the front may break apart,” it added.
