Tropical Depression Florita was designated 10W by the JTWC earlier, and looks to be intensifying slowly under some strong wind shear. Despite the upgrade to a tropical storm, the impacts have not changed – heavy rainfall remains the primary threat to the Philippines.

The best indication at the moment suggests a second landfall just to the east of Hong Kong later in the week.
