Taiwan escaped a blow from future Typhoon Man-yi, but there are signs that will not be the case with the next system that forms in the western Pacific.
After concerns were raised earlier this week of a possible track toward Taiwan and southeast China, Man-yi has its sights set on Japan for later this weekend.
Taiwan, meanwhile, will experience daily rounds of showers and thunderstorms through the weekend.
As Man-yi becomes a non-tropical system early next week, current indications point toward a new tropical storm taking shape in the western Pacific. The storm may then continue strengthening into a typhoon as the week progresses.
With the formation of this tropical system still at least a few days away, its exact track for next week is far from etched in stone.
However, there is enough data to support AccuWeather.com meteorologists putting Taiwan on alert for a possible strike by a typhoon late next week. This alert is also valid for Southeast China, the northern Philippines and Japan's Ryukyu Islands.
All residents and visitors to this area should continue to check back with AccuWeather.com as new information and details unfold.
