“Bagyong Emong” continues to slow down and currently over the sea off the southern tip of Taiwan, state weather bureau PAGASA announced in its 5:00 am update on Tuesday, July 6, 2021. It has maximum sustained winds of 55 km/h near the center, gustiness of up to 70 km/h, and central pressure of 1002 hPa.
TROPICAL CYCLONE WIND SIGNALS IN EFFECT
TCWS No. 1 (30-60 km/h Strong winds prevailing or expected in 36 hours)
TRACK AND INTENSITY OUTLOOK
On the forecast track, “Emong” may exit the Philippine Area of Responsibility this morning.
The high movement speed of the tropical cyclone, the weak nature of its circulation, and the frictional effects of Taiwan’s rugged terrain prevents it from further intensifying. It is forecast to maintain its strength until it makes landfall over coast of Fujian or Guangdong country in southeastern China this morning or afternoon.
