China News Service, Hangzhou, July 21 (Zhang Yuhuan and Wei Yanran) In the past few days, the movement path of the typhoon "Fireworks" has become a "confusing" problem.
According to the latest news, Typhoon No. 6 "Fireworks" intensified into a strong typhoon at 11 o'clock on the 21st. At 14 o'clock, the center was located on the ocean about 560 kilometers east of Yilan County, Taiwan Province. It was level 14 (42 m/s), 955 HPa.
It is expected that the "fireworks" will move westward at a speed of about 10 kilometers per hour, and their intensity will gradually increase. They will move back and forth into the southeastern part of the East China Sea on the evening of the 23rd, and gradually approach the coast of Zhejiang.
The Meteorological Department stated that at present, due to the weak guiding airflow of the typhoon "Fireworks", there is greater uncertainty about the path of movement after approaching Taiwan, but it is certain that the "Fireworks" will approach the east coast of China and increase in intensity, whether they will land or not. It depends on how the tropical disturbance on the east side of the "fireworks" develops.
The speed and strength of the tropical development will affect the position of the subtropical high and the future direction of the "fireworks".
The Zhejiang Meteorological Observatory predicts that from 21st to 22nd, Zhejiang coastal areas will have showers or thunderstorms, some moderate to heavy rains; other areas will be cloudy to overcast, and some will have showers or thunderstorms; the above areas with thunderstorms will be accompanied by short-term rainstorms.
On the 23rd, Zhejiang was overcast with showers or thunderstorms, some moderate to heavy rains, and local heavy rains in coastal areas.
According to data from Zhejiang Meteorological Observatory, 45 typhoons landed in Zhejiang from 1949 to 2020. The distribution of typhoons landed in each month was mainly concentrated from July to September. Among them, the number of typhoons landed in Zhejiang in August was the largest, reaching 21. .
