Bob McDavitt's ideas for sailing weather around the South pacific

22 April 2016

TC AMOS update

On Saturday morning (Fiji/NZ/Samoa date) (22 2037 UTC)

AMOS was over open sea north of Wallis Island

and seems to be heading for south coast of Samoa on Sunday night.

 

Its centre may miss making “landfall” but the ring of its strongest winds are likely to affect both Savai’i and Upolu

 

The combination of steep hillsides and heavy rain is likely to produce significant landslides, especially on those hills facing the incoming wind---and in this case ,  that’ll be a wind from the northwest.

 

Brace accordingly .
