Number 3 signal indeed issued; fresh to strong winds blowing with chance of gales on high ground.
Megi has weakened, though still a typhoon. Now, seems likely to weaken further and make landfall over eastern Guangdong or maybe even Fujian. Forecast tracks include one that would later curve it westwards, past Hong Kong; yet three others taking it past Taiwan.
Though no direct hit for Hong Kong, seems we could still have some windy and rainy weather ahead, especially tomorrow and over the weekend.21 10 月 2010 8:42 上午 #8548匏名
Hi there Martin. I was wondering if you would take a rough guess as to whether the T3 signal will still be in force tomorrow?
I am a teacher and if it is, it would be really awesome.

Hahaha, I bet your principal wouldn't be chuffed with your post!
By no means all schools close for No 3, tho yours surely among them.
My guess: yes, Number 3 will be in effect tomorrow. Megi taking its time to go anywhere, tho still seems bound for e Guangdong. So still chance of strong winds, but gales and above not so likely without a shift to northwest (I've seen notions a northwest shift, later, is possible).

Hi Martin, is there any chance of having T8 tomorrow? we have plans to go to macau tomorrow and i was wondering if its possible to take the trip or just forego our booking. thanks.2010年10月21日 9:29 上午 #8551
哈！ – 好吧，你希望注意到我對包括颱風在內的天氣很著迷，但不是專家！
也就是說，從 Weather Underground 的帖子和最新曲目來看，8 號明天似乎不太可能出現。然而，風暴距離我們僅約 420 公里，而且威力強大，大風半徑大：改變路徑並朝我們移動將導致 8。更有可能是向北路徑，強度更大；移居台灣甚至說得通。讓大家猜不透！
畢竟，澳門'是賭徒的目的地！2010年10月21日 10:56 下午 #8552匏名
我看到颱風megi路徑又變了，但你能猜到會有颱風8嗎？謝謝22 10 月 2010 1:36 上午 #8553
Megi has indeed weakened somewhat, continued moving towards border between Guangdong and Fujian provinces.
Number 3 strong wind signal still in effect, yet Number 8 does not seem too likely. (There was brief mention by HK Observatory late last night that No 8 would probably not be issued before noon; yet no mention of it on current report.)
Maybe Number 3 won't be needed too much longer – wind speeds have dropped somewhat, pressure rising, though we can still expect squally showers over weekend.22 10 月 2010 5:23 上午 #8554
Just seen news reports of torrential rains in Taiwan, causing landslides.
So though we missed the excitement of powerful winds – and chance for day off for those hoping for Number 8 signal today! – there are clear benefits from even weakening Typhoon Megi giving Hong Kong a miss. (Albeit we may yet get some rain.)22 10 月 2010 12:15 下午 #8555匏名

Well, Amelia, no chance of skiving off school because of a typhoon on Monday!
Megi no longer mighty, but increasingly enfeebled, heading over Fujian and forecast to move even further away from us.
Had looked set to be right on top of us today; yet here's shot from Cheung Chau, on a fine and pleasant day.
