Typhoon signal No.1 may be issued tomorrow as Conson approaches

With Tropical Cyclone Conson expected to enter and move across the South China Sea in the next few days, the Hong Kong Observatory is considering issuing the Standby Signal, No. 1 during the day tomorrow.

The HKO said Conson is expected to skirt more than about 500 km to the south to southwest of Hong Kong and move in the general direction of Hainan Island.

Squally showers and thunderstorms associated with Conson will affect the coast of Guangdong on Friday, and it will be windier over the region.

At noon, Severe Tropical Storm Conson was centered about 40 kilometers south of Manila. It is forecast to move northwest at about 15 kilometers per hour across Luzon and enter the central part of the South China Sea.

Meanwhile, Tropical Cyclone Chanthu currently over the western North Pacific will move in the general direction of Taiwan and Luzon Strait in the next couple of days. It may then enter the northeastern part of the South China Sea and interact with Conson.

The observatory said there are uncertainties in the movement and development of the two tropical cyclones, reminding members of the public to be aware of the change in weather.
