Heavy Rain Warnings Issued for Nearly All of Taiwan|慎防降雨致災 屏東超大豪雨.高雄大豪雨
The unstable weather is expected to last until May 25, as the island is still reeling from precipitation caused by a southwestern flow and a stationary front. The Central Weather Bureau has issued extremely heavy rain warnings for several regions and people who are traveling over the weekend should be cautious. The Central Weather Bureau forecasts the front will gradually move towards the south on May 23, and the rain should ease up a bit.
All of Taiwan experienced rain on May 22 due to the interaction between a stationary front and a southwestern flow. Southern Taiwan saw heavy rain. The accumulated rainfall over a 24-hour period in Pingtung's Chunri Township surpassed 337 millimeters. The Central Weather Bureau issued successive "extremely heavy rain special warnings" that said May 22 is the day when the southwestern flow will be the strongest. Kaohsiung should therefore be prepared for torrential rain, while Pingtung County will see "extremely torrential rain."
Today, the only place without a heavy rain warning is Hualien's plains. All other areas are seeing extremely heavy rain, and all are included within the extremely heavy rain special warnings. A strong convective cloud system on the plum rain front is moving towards Taiwan in waves, so the weather is unstable everywhere. We want to remind everyone that several days of consecutive rain have already loosened soil and rocks in mountainous areas, and landslides may occur following today's heavy rain.
All of Taiwan saw unstable weather on May 22. The Central Weather Bureau forecasts the front will gradually move towards the south on May 23, and the rain should ease up a bit. However, northern Taiwan will still see cloudy weather while the south will see showers or thunderstorms. Weather analysts also reminded the public that several days of consecutive rain may cause soil and rocks to loosen in mountainous areas, which could in turn lead to natural disasters.
It will ease up slightly tomorrow and the day after that, but it hasn't completely stopped yet. That's why people should avoid going to mountainous areas tomorrow and the day after that.
The unstable weather is expected to last until May 25. The CWB reminds the public that short but intense showers are often accompanied by strong winds, lighting, and thunder, and people who are traveling should be extra vigilant. Meanwhile, low-lying areas need to be on the alert for flooding.
天氣分析師 吳聖宇表示：「明、後天只是比較緩和，但是還沒說到完全會停下來的程度，所以說, 提醒盡量能夠避免，明、後天到山區活動這個情況。」
