    Minor floods in Pingtung and Kaohsiung as a strong plum rain front hits (2020/05/22)

    Extremely heavy rain made for a damp Friday across Taiwan, with minor flooding in some central and southern regions. The highest rainfall was recorded at Pingtung's Chunri Township, where almost 500 millimeters fell in one day. On Saturday morning, the rain is expected to gradually ease up, but not much. Meteorologists say balmy weather won't be back until Thursday next week.

    As cars pass, the spray is as high as a person. Daren East Street, in front of Pingtung’s Tajen University, is flooded.

    A nearby street is like a waterfall. This delivery man had to turn around halfway.

    Similar scenes here at Fengren?仁 Road in Kaohsiung’s Renwu仁武 Township. The slow lane was half flooded, forcing vehicles out into the middle of the road, straddling the fast lane. People trying to get to work on their scooters were forced to stop on the verge.

    Some resorted to walking their bike through the flood, afraid it could be damaged if they tried to ride on. Others took their chances with the cars in the fast lane. On nearby Renguang Road, residents were up at 4 a.m. erecting flood defenses.

    The southwest monsoon and a plum rain front are the rain gods responsible for the chaos. Satellite images show a continuous stream of fairly strong clouds sweeping over the central and southern regions. This unusual streak of purple across the image means heavy rain across Taiwan.

    We have intermittent but strong gusts of air and rain clouds that come in with the plum rain front, one after another. We can see the southwest, and upwind over here, it’s covered by a strong air current and cloud system. This system will have its most obvious impact in the daytime on Friday.

    It’s this current that could cause serious damage. In 2009, a southwesterly storm called Typhoon Morakot caused catastrophic flooding. Again in 2018, a tropical low pressure system brought in dangerous torrential rain.

    In the center and to the south, the rain will intensify, especially in Pingtung. Since yesterday until now, many regions have had hourly precipitation of 40 mm or more, the highest hourly rainfall being 81 mm in Sandimen Township, Pingtung.

    But forecasters say that Friday was the worst this front has to offer. From the early hours of Saturday, the driving rain will ease up a little, although heavy rain spells will still appear on and off across the country. Sunny weather is not expected until Thursday next week.

    鋒面影響+西南氣流 中南部山區雨勢增強

    受到西南氣流加上鋒面影響,中南部從昨天開始,大雨狂灌,累計到上午,屏東春日鄉就出現將近500毫米雨量。氣象局上午將屏東縣升級為超大豪雨地區,高雄山區也發大豪雨特報。也提醒民眾,一直到明天凌晨,都還會有強對流不斷移入,大雨伴隨雷擊,必須非常留意雨勢成災。

    車輛開過去,馬上濺起一人高水花,屏東大仁科大前大仁東街,又淹水了。

    科大前的巷弄成了小瀑布,送貨員機車開到一半,趕緊豆退嚕。

    鏡頭轉到高雄仁武區鳯仁路,慢車道淹成一片,所有車輛只能往中間快車道擠,趕著上班的機車族更是被迫停在路邊。

    就怕機車熄火,有的騎士牽車經過淹水路段,有的騎士則是冒險鑽進快車道,緊臨的仁光路,居民早上四點就趕緊把水閘門架起來。

    受到西南氣流跟梅雨鋒面影響,全台灣整周都"雨神同行"。看看衛星雲圖,中南部不停有中尺度對流移入,紫色對流系統,罕見在台灣下方連成"一條龍",幾乎全台都進入豪大雨警戒。

    “梅雨鋒面上,有斷斷續續強烈對流雲系在消消長長,可以看到西南方以及上游區,被強勢對流雲系所覆蓋,這系統在今天白天是影響最顯著的時候”

    西南氣流恐釀災,過去最著名的例子就是2009年莫拉克颱風,過境後西南氣流造成88水災,還有2018年熱帶性低氣壓釀豪大雨。

    [[氣象局簡任技正 伍婉華]]
    “在中部以南地區,雨勢越來越明顯,尤其在屏東地區,昨天降雨到現在為止,很多地方都出現每小時40毫米以上降雨,最大時雨量,是出現屏東三地門81毫米降雨”

    梅雨彈攻擊,今日雨勢最明顯,週六清晨開始各地逐漸轉為豪雨等級的短暫陣雨,預計到下周四,才會恢復穩定天氣。
