The National Hurricane Center defines “extra-tropical” as a transition that implies both poleward displacement (meaning it moves toward the north or south pole) of the cyclone and the conversion of the cyclone’s primary energy source from the release of latent heat of condensation to baroclinic (the temperature contrast between warm and cold air masses) processes. It was located near 24.1 degrees north latitude and 133.8 degrees east longitude.

Daily imagery is provided by services from NASA’s GIBS, part of EOSDIS. Warm sea surface temperatures are helping keep the storm together as it battles moderate vertical wind shear of winds 20 to 25 knots (23 to 29 mph/37 to 46 kph). Is the Atlantic hurricane season getting longer? JTWC forecasters expect 33W to make landfall very near Ho Chi Minh City late on Nov. 24, and then progress to the northwest into Cambodia, For updated forecasts and warnings, visit the Vietnam National Centre for Hydro-Meteorological Forecasting (NCHMF):, By Rob Gutro  Man-yi has tracked north-northwestward. By Rob Gutro The surface maximum wind speed of Usagi, which was an intense category 4 western North Pacific tropical cyclone (TC), increased by 33 m s −1 over a 24‐hr period. 33W was moving west and has maximum sustained winds near 55 knots (63 mph/102 kph).The Joint Typhoon Warning Center or JTWC noted that 33W may intensify slightly before making landfall on a day. More than 350 mm (14 inches) of rainfall was reported causing widespread flooding around Ho Chi Minh City. Bouchra is expected to make its final dissipation by the end of the day on Nov. 20.

Man-yi is expected to maintain strength for another day and then be absorbed by the mid-latitude westerlies (winds) and begin extra-tropical transition. Across the water, green palms trees shimmered as the occasional bird flicked across the surface, singing ... Saigoneer in Eat & Drink JTWC has forecast Man-yi to move northwest and begin weakening. NASA-NOAA satellite Suomi-NPP, and MODIS Aqua and Terra provide continuous imagery for “AM” at local 10:30am, and “PM” at local 1:30pm.

Maximum sustained winds had weakened to 30 knots (34.5 mph/55.5 kph) and it continued weakening as it moved further inland. Suomi NPP passed over 33W on Nov. 23 at 1:24 a.m. EDT (0624 UTC) and the VIIRS instrument provided a visible image. At 10 a.m. EST (1500 UTC) on Nov. 26, Man-yi was a weak tropical storm with maximum sustained winds near 35 knots (40 mph/74 kph).

After more than a day of unrelenting rain, Typhoon Usagi has reduced Saigon to a waterlogged town. In an effort to remedy Saigon’s current traffic pandemonium, local authorities are considering turning several of the city’s major streets into one-way thoroughfares. Storm Maps.

What followed was more than 24 hours of continuous rain in some southern provinces and Saigon that paralyzed local traffic and inundated low-lying areas.
