Hah! – well you hopefully note I'm fascinated by weather inc typhoons but no expert!
That said, seeing Weather Underground posts, and latest track, Number 8 looks unlikely tomorrow. The storm is, however, only around 420km away, and powerful, with large radius of gale force winds: a change of track and movement towards us would lead to 8. More likely is northward track, with more weakening; move to Taiwan even plausible. Keeping folks guessing!
I also saw post saying someone in Macau weather bureau suggested there's 50% chance of Number 8 on Saturday.
After all, Macau's a destination for gamblers!
