TAIPEI (The China Post) — There is a high chance that there won’t be any typhoons in July, Taiwan noted Meteorologist Peng Chi-ming (彭啟明) said on Wednesday.

Summer is often the peak season for typhoons in Taiwan; yet, the chances of a typhoon are quite slim this month, he added.

Peng explained that there is still a possibility of them in the upcoming month.

He pointed out that atmospheric pressure will continue to rise over the next few days, meaning that while there is a possibility of sporadic rain in the afternoons.

At noon, the temperature could rise up to 37 to 38 degrees Celsius.

From Friday to Sunday, or even until Monday, when atmospheric pressure decreases, the northern weather system will shift to the south.

As a result, the chance of thunderstorms in the afternoons will increase, he said.
