The signal No.8SE is still in effect. At 10 a.m., tropical storm "Lionrock" is located about 480 kilometers southwest of Macao, approaching the Gulf of Beibu. As the path of "Lionrock" is further north and its combined influence with the northeast monsoon is more significant than expected, winds in Macao will intensify. Gale winds will occasionally affect Macao. The maximum wind force level will be about 7 to 8, and there will be frequent heavy showers and thunderstorms.
As it is during the high phase of astronomical tide, under the joint effect of the astronomical high tide and strong winds, flooding is expected in the Inner Harbor tonight. The maximum flooding level is expected to be below 0.5m.
Meanwhile, the tropical storm “Kompasu”, located to the east of the Philippines, is expected to move towards the Luzon Strait at the beginning of next week. SMG will closely monitor its latest situation. The public are advised to pay attention to the latest weather 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.
