Due to its circulation is small and the movement is slow, the chance of issuing typhoon signal No. 8 before the dawn on 20th is low, unless it intensifies significantly or accelerate its approach to Macao, However, since Cempaka will intensify further and will be the closest to Macau tomorrow daytime, the chances of issuing typhoon signal No. 8 from dawn to morning tomorrow remains "Medium to relatively high".
