Taipei, Sept. 6 (CNA) Tropical Storm Guchol is expected to weaken, so that the
chances of land warnings are slim, with sea warnings expected to be lifted by Thursday afternoon, a Central Weather Bureau (CWB) forecaster said Wednesday.
Guchol’s periphery might cause sporadic rain in areas of Taiwan between late Wednesday and Thursday, when the storm is closest to the island, according to Lin Po-tung (林柏東).
As of 5 p.m. Wednesday, Guchol was approximately 130 kilometers southwest of Taiwan’s southernmost tip, Eluanbi, moving north north-west at 13 kph, with maximum sustained winds of 65 kph and gusts up to 90 kph, CWB data showed.
