[4] Around that time of its weakening, Fengshen began undergoing the Fujiwhara effect with Typhoon Fung-wong; the latter looped to the south of Fengshen and dissipated on July 29. The next day, the depression dissipated over the Bohai Sea. It is expected to make a gradual turn back toward the west-northwest with a slight decrease in forward speed over the next couple days. Quick intensification followed, and an upper-level low to the northwest assisted in providing outflow. Large images; July 12, 2008 (2.1 MB JPEG) June 17, 2008 (1.9 MB JPEG) A disaster like a typhoon does not necessarily unfold all at once.

Damaging winds, including winds of 39 mph or more are expected after midnight with near typhoon conditions, shortly afterwards. One of the ways NASA researches tropical cyclones is by using infrared data that provides temperature information. Fengshen is forecast to intensify through Friday possibly becoming a typhoon. Tropical Storm Fengshen’s cold cloud top temperatures revealed that the storm was maintaining strength as a strong tropical storm. Typhoon Fengshen (locally named Frank) entered the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) as a tropical depression on 18 June 2008.

[4] The storm initially moved northwestward, emerging from the monsoon trough as a small cyclone. [4] It weakened below super typhoon status after being at that intensity for five days. Bands of thunderstorms were wrapping into the eye. They can do that because infrared data provides temperature information, and the strongest thunderstorms that reach highest into the atmosphere have the coldest cloud top temperatures. [8][9][10] The typhoon produced strong winds and heavy rain in the country. Tropical Storm Fengshen continued to strengthen in the Northwestern Pacific Ocean as NASA’s Terra satellite passed overhead. Typhoon Fengshen battered the Philippines for two days, sweeping across the Philippine archipelago with maximum winds of 120 km per hour and gusts of up to 150 km per hour.
