TALIM is expected to move northeastward for the next 2 to 3 days. On the forecast track, the core of TALIM will move into Taiwan Strait on Wednesday and brush the northern tip of Taiwan by early morning Thursday...passing over or very close to Taipei. TALIM will then be moving across the East China Sea early Friday as it approaches the Southwest Coast of Kyushu, Japan.

Maximum Sustained Winds (1-min. avg) are near 85 km/hr (45 knots) with higher gusts. TALIM will gain strength reaching peak wind intensity of 100 km/hr before it interacts to the terrain of Taiwan. Thereafter, it will start transforming into an Extratropical Cyclone.

Tropical Storm Force Winds (62-117 km/hr) extend outward up to 205 kilometers (110 nautical miles) from the center. TALIM is a large-sized tropical cyclone with a diameter of 720 kilometers (390 nautical miles).

The following is the summary of the 3-day forecast outlook on this system:

WEDNESDAY EARLY MORNING: Gaining strength as it tracks northeastward near the Southeastern Coast of China...moving into Taiwan Strait...about 178 km South of Shantou, China [2AM JUN 20: 21.8N 116.8E @ 95kph].
THURSDAY EARLY MORNING: Brushing the northern tip of Taiwan...passing over or very close to Taipei [2AM JUN 21: 25.7N 121.3E @ 95kph].
FRIDAY EARLY MORNING: Weakened to a minimal Tropical Storm as it moves across the East China Sea...becoming Extratropical while approaching the Southwest Coast of Kyushu, Japan [2AM JUN 22: 30.5N 127.6E @ 75kph].

*Please be reminded that the Forecast Outlook changes every 6 hours, and the Day 3 Forecast Track have an average error of 250 km...while the wind speed forecast error, averages 35 kph per day. Therefore, a turn to the left or right of its future track and changes in its wind speed must be anticipated from time to time.


Below is the summary of the storm's parts and its hazards affecting specific areas:

INNER RAINBANDS - over water (South China Sea)...not affecting any land areas. Tropical Storm Conditions with Tropical Storm Force Winds (62-85 kph) will be expected along these bands.
OUTER RAINBANDS - over water (South China Sea)...not affecting any land areas. Cloudy/Rainy Conditions w/ moderate to strong winds (<62 kph) will be expected along these bands (click here to know more about Rainbands).
24HR TOTAL RAINFALL ACCUMULATION - from 5 up to 200 mm (low to high rainfall) can be expected along areas affected by the outer & inner rainbands (see above)...with isolated amounts of 201 to 450 mm (high) along areas near the center of Talim (06W). (click to open NOAA's eTRaP graphic).
COASTAL STORM SURGE FLOODING - possible 1-3 ft [0.3-0.9 m] above normal tide levels...accompanied by large and dangerous battering waves can be expected along the coastal, inland lakes and beach front areas of Southern & Southeastern China. Very minimal damage is likely on this type of storm surge. Danger from Rip Currents or Rip Tides can be expected along the beach-front areas of Western Luzon and Vietnam.
