Possible warning signals to be issued due to the impact on "Nuri"
Update Time: 2020-06-14 01:10
|Typhoon Signal No.3||In effect|
|Typhoon Signal No.8||14th early morning||Medium|
|"blue" Storm Surge Warning||Low|
Tropical storm Nuri is moving northwestward towards the western coast of Guangdong. The forecast calls for its landfall near Yangjiang. The rainband associated with Nuri starts to affect Macao. Thus winds will gradually intensify and there will be squally showers with heavy rains at times. Nuri will move closest to Macao in early morning at about 150 km southeast to Macao. Though the gale wind radii associated with Nuri is rather small, winds may occasionally reach the minimum limit of the tropical cyclone signal No.8 if Nuri moves northward. Thus, the possibility of issuing tropical cyclone signal no.8 cannot be eliminated.
Meanwhile, the possibility of having storm surge flooding in Macao is relatively low today because the astronomical tide is low. However, members of the public are advised to take precautions against possible flooding caused by heavy rains. Please also pay attention to the latest news.
Remarks: The probabilities of issuing severe weather warning signals for the next one or two days are provided in the table. Public can learn the possibility of being affected by the tropical cyclone over the specific period of time in Macao so that necessary precautions can be well prepared earlier. Please keep notice of our latest information.
