TALIM is expected to move rapidly northeast to east-northeastward for the next 2 to 3 days. On the forecast track, the core of TALIM will move across Taiwan Strait on Wednesday afternoon and pass more or less 75 km to the North of Taipei before midnight Thursday. TALIM will enter the East China Sea Thursday and will traverse Japan (thru Kyushu, Shikoku and Honshu) on Friday.

Maximum Sustained Winds (1-min. avg) are near 85 km/hr (45 knots) with higher gusts. Some fluctuations on its strength is likely as TALIM interacts with the terrain of Taiwan and Southeastern China. Thereafter, it will become an Extratropical Cyclone as it moves across mainland Japan on Friday.

Tropical Storm Force Winds (62-100 km/hr) extend outward up to 220 kilometers (120 nautical miles) from the center. TALIM is a large-sized tropical cyclone with a diameter of 815 kilometers (440 nautical miles).

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

WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON: Weakens into a minimal Tropical Storm (TS) as it moves across Taiwan Strait...about 139 km ESE of Xiamen, China [2PM JUN 20: 24.1N 119.4E @ 65kph].
THURSDAY AFTERNOON: Accelerating rapidly northeastward while moving across the East China Sea...becoming Extratropical as it re-intensifies...about 381 km NNW of Okinawa, Japan [2PM JUN 21: 29.7N 126.4E @ 85kph].
FRIDAY AFTERNOON: Becomes Extratropical while over Central Honshu [2PM JUN 22: 36.0N 136.4E @ 55kph].

*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 420 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.
