‘Very strong’ typhoon Hinnamno, coming to the Korean Peninsula… 2nd Jeju Namhae Influence Area


The 11th typhoon ‘Hinnamno’, classified as ‘very strong’, is highly likely to affect the Korean Peninsula from the 2nd, the Korea Meteorological Administration forecast on the 30th.

Hinnamno, which developed as a typhoon in the sea southeast of Japan on the 28th, advanced to the sea about 740km east of Okinawa, Japan on the afternoon of the 30th. Hinnamno was expected to advance westward to the vicinity of South China. However, the Tibetan high pressure, located in mainland China, has grown and blocked the course of the typhoon.

Hinnamno is expected to travel northward to the Korean Peninsula along the edge of the high pressure. The Korea Meteorological Administration predicted, “It could directly affect Korea, starting from the 2nd on the southern coast of Jeju, passing through the Korea Strait.”

Hin Nam-no’s strength is ‘very strong’. Among the typhoons that directly affected Korea this year, the intensity is the highest. As of the 30th, the central pressure was 925 hPa (hectopascals), which is lower than the worst typhoon ever recorded in 1959 ‘Sarah’ (952 hPa). The lower the central pressure, the stronger the hurricane is, the stronger the surrounding air is sucked in. As water vapor continues to be supplied from the south, precipitation is also expected to be significant.

Meanwhile, as cold air came down from the north and it rained, the midday temperature in some areas such as Buyeo (20.0 degrees) and Daejeon (20.6 degrees) on the 30th was the lowest since observation.
