At 6pm on August 31st, the Hong Kong Observatory announced that a tropical depression over the northeastern part of the South China Sea will linger around the sea areas to the west of Luzon and will be slow moving.

It is expected to keep a distance from Hong Kong tonight and early tomorrow (Friday) and then intensify as it gradually moves in our direction over the next couple of days.

The HKO stated that they may consider issuing their Standby Signal No. 1 tomorrow when the tropical cyclone takes on a more definite northerly track and edges closer to the coast of Guangdong

They also expect the weather to deteriorate progressively with heavy on Saturday and Sunday.
