Signal No 1 will remain hoisted this morning as Severe Tropical Storm Nalgae is about 760 kilometres south-southeast of Macao.

The possibility of raising Signal No 3 is quite high although the cyclone is forecast to move northwest towards Hainan, while there is a lesser chance that Signal No 8 will be hoisted.

The SMG warned that under the influence of the northeast monsoon, the weather in Macao will be relatively fine and dry today. Although local winds may occasionally reach Beaufort scale level 6 in the morning, the northeast monsoon will further intensify and move southward, and as Nalgae is moving closer, local winds will further intensify tonight, so the chance of issuing signal No 3 between afternoon and evening is relatively high.

In addition, due to the astronomical high tide in the next few days, flooding is possible in the inner harbour area between midnight to early morning. The public is advised to pay attention to the latest weather news.
