Tropical Cyclone Warning Signal No.8SE is currently in effect. At 11 a.m., tropical storm "Lionrock" is located at about 480 km southwest of Macao, generally approaching the Beibu Gulf. Since the combined effect of "Lionrock" and the northeast monsoon is more significant than expected, gale winds will occasionally affect Macao today, with maximum wind reaching level 7-8, 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 to occur in the Inner Harbor area tonight. The maximum flooding level is expected to be below 0.5m.
Meanwhile, the tropical storm “Kompasu” located east of the Philippines is expected to move towards the Luzon Strait at the beginning of next week. SMG will closely monitor the latest situation. The public are advised to pay attention to the latest weather news and take precautionary measures.
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.
