Taipei, The Central Weather Bureau (CWB) is tracking two tropical disturbances that have emerged over the Philippines and the South China Sea and are likely to develop into typhoons that could affect Taiwan next week.
Whether the typhoons will form and to what extent Taiwan will be hit will not become clear until June 3, CWB forecaster Cheng Chuan- fang (???) said Wednesday.
If the typhoons form and move toward Taiwan, they are expected to bring substantial precipitation to the country, which has yet to see any substantial rainfall this year during what should be the annual plum rain season, Cheng said.
A weather front is expected to approach Taiwan June 1, Cheng went on, but the system is weak in intensity and will not deliver much-needed rain in central and southern Taiwan.
