A tropical disturbance east of the Philippines could develop into this year’s second tropical storm or typhoon in the northwestern Pacific, the Central Weather Bureau said yesterday.
It could strengthen into a tropical depression today, as it passes through the Philippines’ Luzon Island and the South China Sea on its way toward Hong Kong and China’s Guangdong Province, the bureau said.
The tropical depression would likely develop into a tropical storm or a typhoon when it moves through the South China Sea, the bureau said, adding that it would monitor its development to determine how it might affect the nation.
The tropical storm would be named Nuri once it is formed, which means “parrot” in Malay, it said.
