Pessoal como ainda não havia um tópico para 2009 dedicado ao seguimento para a Ásia decidi cria-lo depois desta noticia

Neve nos Emirados árabes Unidos

:)

engraçado que eu estive no dubai o ano passado e falei com um tipo muito simpatico que estava a trabalhar na secretaria do hotel e disse que todos os anos, no inverno, ia ás montanhas que fazem fronteira com oman ( com picos com mais de 2000mts) e que nevava frequentemente embora com acumulações de 5cm que rapidamente derretiam.
e o que era mais engraçádo , segundo ele era numa distancia de poucos kms estar na praia com 26Cº
o dubai nem é assim tao quente em janeiro pois as temperaturas muitas vezes atingem 10Cº e a media varia entre 13 e 22Cº quanto mais a 1700mts..e já agora na madeira o exemplo é o mesmo

Como foi referido por alguém no seguimento da depressão Filipa, aqui fica o relato da China Meteorological News Press sobre a seca que assola principalmente o norte da China:

Until now, because of little precipitation and high average temperature, meteorological drought has spread to 12 provinces of China. Southern Hebei, southeastern Shaanxi and southwestern Henan have been suffering extremely heavy drought. Generally speaking, the precipitation in the winter wheat areas of northern China has been the minimum of the past 30 years. In some places it even has been the minimum of 50 years. Drought for a long time has greatly affected the local winter wheat.

  According to statistics, since November 1 of 2008, the precipitation of Beijing, Tianjin, most places of Hebei, Shanxi, Shandong, Henan, northern Anhui and Jiangsu, northeastern Hubei, northern Shaanxi, Ningxia and eastern Gansu which are the winter wheat areas has been 50 to 80% less than the normal years. In central Shanxi, central and southern Hebei, northeastern Henan, western Shandong and northwestern Anhui, the precipitation has been 80% less.

  From February 7, eastern Tibet Plateau, east of Northwest China, east of Southwest China, south of North China, central and west of the Yellow-Huaihe River Valley and the Yangtze-Han River Valley will see light to moderate rain (snow). It will be beneficial for relieving the drought situation.

Na China, mais do mesmo... pouca precipitação no Noroeste ao contrário do Leste.

China's artificially induced snow closes 12 highways

r


BEIJING (Reuters) - China closed 12 highways around the capital Beijing on Thursday because of heavy snow brought on after seeding clouds with chemicals, state media said on Thursday.

All outbound highways were closed in Hebei, the drought-hit northern province surrounding Beijing, after heavy snow fell on Wednesday night, Xinhua news agency said.

In all, 12 highways, including one linking Beijing and Shenyang, capital of northeastern Liaoning province, were closed.

Hebei got its first heavy snow of this year on Wednesday. The provincial weather bureau said that snow too was "enhanced" by artificial seeding.

"The snow has brought moisture to the soil, which may help end the drought," Guo Yingchun, a senior engineer of the provincial meteorological observatory, was quoted as saying.

Extreme Rainfall Hits Philippines

-South East Asia:

I spoke on Wednesday about two `hot spots` with respect to tropical weather over the western North Pacific basin, these being to the east and the west of the Philippines, respectively. As of Thursday, the JTWC have posted a `formation alert` relating to the potential for a tropical storm to form over the South China Sea (west of the Philippines). At this time, however, I want to talk about what has lately been happened over the Philippines. Owing to converging low-level winds, out-flowing winds aloft and the hilly nature of the Philippine landscape, there have been instances of torrential rain south and east of Manila.
On the eastern island of Catanduanes, our data shows 36-hour rainfall (through Thursday night (local time) of 697 mm, or 27.4 inches, at the weather radar site (north side of the island). Shrinking next to this, yet still dramatic, are these falls (within two to three days): Alabat -320 mm/12.5 inches, Daet (southern Luzon) - 335 mm/13.2 inches, Virac (southern Catanduanes) - 275 mm/10.8 inches. And the heavy rain is not done. The unsettled setting of converging moisture-laden wind over the archipelago will make for local excessive rainfall through at least early next week.
Now, as for the potential for a tropical storm, things are not so easy. Notwithstanding the JTWC plotting tropical low pressure off west-central Philippines, numerical weather forecasts are divergent as to what will happen--and when it may happen. My take is that no tropical storm will form within the next two days west of the Philippines. The low-level cyclonic swirl (weak low pressure) now over the eastern South China Sea may either dissipate and reform east of the Philippines, shift bodily east to the nearby Philippine Sea, or none of the above.
I am inclined to believe that a tropical storm will happen over the western North Pacific Basin within the next five days (give or take), but I do not know where.

-South Asia:

In South Asia, there was further weakening of the severe heat over Pakistan on Thursday. Thus, the highest temperature was `only` 44 degrees C at Pad Idan. Nawabshah had 42.5 degrees; the hottest at early week was 48 degrees C. Farther south and east, there was widespread 44- to 46-degree (111-115 degrees F) heat spread over northern and middle India. In eastern Maharashtra, Nagpur reached a full 47 degrees C on Thursday. Akola, with 46 degrees, was right behind in line.
The trimming of severe heat over Pakistan has happened owing to a weak low pressure aloft, not unlike a so-called `Western Disturbance` although I believe this may have reached Pakistan from the Arabian Sea and not from the west. Whatever it's path into the Subcontinent, this weak low will veer eastward as it slowly crosses the northern Subcontinent during the next few days. It may spark local heavy thunderstorms at the weekend in the highly storm-prone northeastern Subcontinent (near the Khasi Hills with its renowned rain-soaked town of Cherrapunji).
As the weak low pressure wave heads eastward through the end it the week, it will also trim the heat, if only a little, over the northern half of India.

Estremoz (401 metros)

Tropical storm Kujira has caused deadly landslides and floods in central Philippines this weekend. At least 20 people have been killed and thousands of homes are destroyed.
[Cyril Hilab, Flood Victim]: "I'm disoriented. I haven't fully absorbed what happened. I can't believe that one day I'd wake up and face something like this." Thousands have evacuated their homes as tropical storm Kujira hit the Bicol region with winds up to 95 kilometers per hour on Sunday morning.
Three people are still missing and more than 3,000 are staying in evacuation centers as the flooding destroyed houses, roads and bridges.
[Abelardo Arambulo, Magallanes Town Mayor]: "This area is very dangerous. Residents should relocate to another site. But the problem is, this is a poor municipality. We're seeking help from the president and from the provincial governor."
But thousands are still stranded in ports around the Luzon and Visayas regions as many roads remain impassable. Landslides and flash floods are still common across the Philippines during the monsoon months between May and October.

Une tornade fait au moins vingt morts et des centaines de blessés en Inde

02/04/2009


Une tornade a dévasté pendant cinq minutes environ une région de l’est de l’Inde, faisant vingt morts, des centaines de blessés, et laissant plusieurs milliers de personnes sans foyer. Elle a parcouru près de trois kilomètres sur une largeur de 200 mètres.
Des toits en ciment arrachés et déchiquetés sur le sol, ainsi qu’un tracteur et des douzaines de maisons en ruines : voici tout ce qu’il reste du quartier de Kendrapara (dans la ville de Rajkanika) en Inde après le passage d’une tornade dévastatrice qui en cinq minutes, a eu le même effet qu’un bombardement, d’après les journalistes locaux.
La tornade, qui a fait au moins vingt morts et plus de 250 blessés dans onze villages, a parcouru environ trois kilomètres sur une largeur de 200 mètres, en détruisant tout sur son chemin, dans l’Etat indien d’Orissa à l’est du pays mardi.
