Tropical Storm Trami is several hundred miles east of Taiwan, but is expected to track closer during the next several days. High pressure to the north of the storm will be the main factor controlling the track of Trami.
Although Trami has tracked east and northeast over the past couple of days, a turn to the northwest and eventually west is expected through the middle of this week. This track will take Trami near Taiwan on Wednesday before approaching eastern China on Thursday.
Trami is expected to strengthen slowly over the next few days as it takes this northwest turn. Trami may even become a typhoon for before approaching and possibly making landfall over northern Taiwan, an area that already experienced the landfall of powerful Typhoon Soulik earlier this season.

As with any location seeing a strong tropical system make landfall, flooding rainfall and damaging wind gusts are expected, along with some mudslides.
