Taipei, Aug. 8 (CNA) Severe Typhoon Lekima will have the greatest impact on Taiwan from late Thursday through Friday, when it is projected to skirt the northeastern part of the country, the Central Weather Bureau said.

Lekima is forecast to bring extremely heavy rain to western and northeastern parts of Taiwan, the bureau said.

Intermittent showers were already being seen in northern Taiwan earlier Thursday due to the peripheral effect of the typhoon and the rain was expected to get worse later in the day, with northern parts of the island, Yilan in the northeast and Hualien in the east prone to heavy rain or extremely heavy rain, according to the bureau.

The weather in central and southern Taiwan and Taitung in the east remained stable Thursday morning, but sporadic showers or thunderstorms were forecast for those areas during the afternoon, with the chance of heavy rain in mountainous areas.    [FULL  STORY]
