Typhoons Impacting China, Taiwan and Hong Kong – Tropical Weather Bulletin – September 1, 2023


This evening, Typhoon Saola remains very powerful and may still be strengthening, and is a Category 4 on the Saffir Simpson Scale.

The storm is expected to brush past the coast of southern Guangdong, Hong Kong, and Macau over the next 24 hours, bringing storm surge, strong winds and heavy rainfall, and up to 300mm of rain could fall in the region, causing flash flooding and landslides.

Typhoon Haikui is also intensifying as it limbers towards Taiwan, where it is expected to strike this weekend, where the storm is expected to drop huge amounts of rain over the island and on to eastern China, where rain totals could accumulate to over 500mm.

The storm is expected to make landfall as a Category 1 or 2 typhoon.

Ex-hurricane Idalia is now an extratropical cyclone and is approaching Bermuda, where it is expected to regenerate into a tropical storm, and watches are now in effect for the island.

The storm is expected to once again turn post-tropical by Tuesday.

In the West Pacific, Tropical Storm Kirogi is struggling, while a hemisphere away tiny Tropical Storm Jose is expected to remain short lived under the shadow of Hurricane Franklin, which itself is on its way out.

Further systems are expected to develop in the Atlantic and Eastern Pacific, with trouble brewing in the Western Pacific again next week.
