On the track forecast, the typhoon will make landfall over the southern portion of Taiwan tomorrow morning, then exit the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) tomorrow afternoon or evening. The weakening trend is forecast to continue due to the increasing dry air entrainment and vertical wind shear.

Persons living in areas identified to be highly or very highly susceptible to these hazards are advised to follow evacuation and other instructions from local officials.
