This year’s 25th typhoon Tokage, which formed east of Philippines on Thursday, is set to bring more rain to Taiwan over the weekend as it has gathered more strength and expected to move towards the East Vietnam Sea.
While most parts of the island have seen mostly sunny and warmer weather on Saturday morning, the weather is expected to change later in the day as a cold front passes through the island, according to the Central Weather Bureau (CWB).
The strengthened northeasterly winds will also turn weather chilly into the evening, the bureau said. The temperatures are forecast to dip to around 17 degrees Celsius by tomorrow morning in the northern part of Taiwan.
The mild typhoon will reinforce the precipitation by Saturday evening, while most of the heavy rain will be seen on Sunday across the island and especially in Hualien and Taitung of eastern Taiwan, as well as Taipei mountain area, according to the latest forecast.
