Super Typhoon Surigae / Bising

Typhoon Surigae known as Bising in the Philippines continued to strengthen today maxing out with winds at Category 5 intensity. Not a common occurrence this time of year but not unheard of. Just 5 years ago Typhoon Maysak was a Super Typhoon in the Philippine Sea in late March. The storms track continues to pull north and will likely stay off shore of the Philippines but close enough to still cause problems with the outer rain bands.

At this time the official track does keep the storm east of the Philippines but close enough where it still can create problems including scattered showers and gusty winds on the east coast due to the outer rain bands as well as large waves.

Based on the latest forecast the east coast of Samar through South East Luzon will see Tropical Storm Strength conditions from Saturday – Monday. For those in the area they should be at least be making preparations including having a plan in place in case an evacuation is needed.

With that said the Philippines does remain in the “cone of error” which means there is still a chance this storm could waver just a bit further west which would create a major difference in the overall impacts from the storm.
