Haiyan's final pressureEdit
What do you think Haiyan's minimum pressure will be when the TC reports are released? After all, I refuse to believe that a cyclone with 195 mph winds has a pressure of only 895 hPa. --TekkenGuy12 (talk) 07:42, January 2, 2014 (UTC)
- Well, I personally have very little clue on what Haiyan's true pressure was. The NOAA has several different estimates. Data Set A suggests a pressure of 884 mbar, while Data Set B suggests a pressure of 858 mbar. Also to note is that Haiyan's Dvorak intensity was 8.1. No other beast can match that intensity, not even Monica's bonafide 869 mbar reading. 8.0 on the Dvorak scale is 858 mbar. So, using my knowledge of Dvorak, Haiyan's pressure would be ~856 mbar using that technique. In reply to your question, TekkenGuy, my estimate for Haiyan's minimum pressure is the average of the two NOAA estimate readings, or 871 mbar, one millibar behind Tip, the strongest tropical cyclone of all time in terms of minimum pressure. I will also acknowledge Angela, Gay '92, and Megi had Dvorak estimates that challenged Tip's intensity as well. Scientists concluded that Gay and Megi outdid Tip, and Angela outperformed all three of those storms. But based on satellite imagery, I hypothesize Haiyan was stronger than Angela, and hence Gay, Megi, and Tip as well. 02:09, January 3, 2014 (UTC)
