THE JET STREAM WINDS ALOFT: CRITICAL IN WEATHER FORECASTING, AND THE KEY TO A DRY WEEK
FINE FALL WEATHER CONTINUES REGIONWIDE

ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE GLOBE, TYPHOON WIPHA TAKES AIM ON SHANGHAI...

While the Eastern two thirds of the nation is fairly quiet, a strong tropical cyclone is sweeping across China.  Approximately 200,000 people have been evacuated from Shanghai, China - the center of financial activity for the country's markets - in advance of Typhoon Wipha, and meteorologists there are expecting the storm to be the worst in a decade, as it will be the first time in that many years that a storm makes direct landfall in Shanghai.  Nonetheless, though the storm may be nasty by Chinese standards, it's a relatively weak storm relative to tropical cyclones - packing winds of 90-95 mph and expected to drop up to eight inches of rain.  Typhoon_wipha_wp1307Still, weather is relative to one's location, so while a storm of this magnitude - a Category one storm on a scale of one to five - would be relatively easy for hurricane hardy residents of the Southeastern United States to contend with, those in the path of this Asian typhoon are looking at their worst strike in ten years.  The image here is from the Joint Typhoon Warning Center, and more information regarding Typhoon Wipha's impact on China can be found from the BBC News outlet in Britain.  -Matt
