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 this afternoon and pass more or less 85 km to the Northwest of Taipei before midnight tonight. TALIM will enter the East China Sea Thursday and will traverse the Southern Coastline of Japan on Friday.

Maximum Sustained Winds (1-min. avg) are near 85 km/hr (45 knots) with higher gusts. Some additional intensification can be expected as the system moves along the Taiwan Strait and into the East China Sea. TALIM will become an Extratropical Cyclone as it moves across the Southern Coast of Japan on Friday.

Tropical Storm Force Winds (62-100 km/hr) extend outward up to 150 kilometers (80 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:

THURSDAY EARLY MORNING: Intensifying slightly as it enters the East China Sea...about 258 km NNE of Taipei, Taiwan [2AM JUN 21: 27.0N 122.9E @ 95kph].
FRIDAY EARLY MORNING: Making landfall along the Southern portion of Kyushu, Japan or very near Kagoshima City...becoming Extratropical [2AM JUN 22: 31.5N 130.6E @ 75kph].
SATURDAY EARLY MORNING: Becomes Extratropical while over East Coast of Honshu [2AM JUN 23: 35.5N 143.2E @ 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 - affecting & spreading across Taiwan and Batanes Group of Islands. 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 100 mm (low to high rainfall) can be expected along areas affected by the outer & inner rainbands (see above)...with isolated amounts of 101 to 200 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 Taiwan, Batanes Group & 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.
