Contrary to previous concerns that the 6th Typhoon Kanun would cause great damage as it penetrated the entire Korean Peninsula, as of the afternoon of the 10th, as its power weakened, the expected timing and location of its extinction were advanced. The reasons for this weakening of power include the fact that Kanun did not receive the power of warm sea water while passing inland, and that it suffered a lot of friction due to the complex terrain of Korea.
Park Jeong-min, a forecast analyst at the Korea Meteorological Administration, said in a news head-to-head match on YTN Radio Shinyul that afternoon, “Typhoon Kanun’s power is gradually weakening at a moderate level.”
Forecaster Park cited two reasons for this.
The first is that Kanun did not receive the power of warm sea water as an energy source as it passed inland. Forecaster Park said, “The energy source of the typhoon is warm seawater, and the typhoon grows due to the release of latent heat produced here. It is currently passing through the inland of Korea for a long time, so it cannot receive heat from the sea.”
The second reason is that Korea’s terrain is complicated, so typhoons have suffered a lot of friction. Forecaster Park said, “In order for a typhoon to maintain its rotational force, friction must be low, but in Korea, the terrain is complicated, so friction토토사이트 occurred on the ground quite a lot.”
Forecaster Park considered the possibility that Typhoon No. 7 ‘Ran’ would pass through Korea was low. He said, “It cannot be said that there is no possibility of coming to Korea at all as the situation of the North Pacific high pressure or the barometric system around Korea continues to change, but according to current forecasts, it is expected to head toward Japan in the future.”
Meanwhile, the Kanun quickly lost its power as it passed through the metropolitan area. Kanun landed at ‘medium’ strength near Geoje, Gyeongsangnam-do this morning, but gradually weakened as it passed inland. As of 11 p.m., Kanun passes about 40 km north-northeast of Seoul, with a maximum wind speed of 19 m per second. Typhoon intensity ‘medium’ corresponds to the maximum wind speed of 25 to 32 m/sec, and in the case of 17 to 24 m/sec, the intensity level is not determined.
The time and location of the disappearance has also been advanced. According to the Korea Meteorological Administration, Kanun was originally predicted to disappear in Sinuiju, northwestern North Korea around the afternoon of the 11th, but it is expected to weaken to a tropical depression south of Pyongyang within the next 12 hours. In Korea, it is scheduled to pass through a point about 80 km north-northwest of Seoul around 3 am on the 11th.
