Taipei, July 3 (CNA) A tropical depression near Guam was expected to develop into a tropical storm overnight Thursday which could begin impacting Taiwan from Monday, the Central Weather Bureau said. As of 7 p.m. Thursday, the depression was some 3,000 kilometers east-southeast of Taiwan's southernmost tip of Eluanbi, moving in a west-northwesterly direction at a speed of 10 kilometers per hour, forecasters said. After the storm is formed, its outer rim could bring higher waves along Taiwan's coastal areas, the bureau said, cautioning that ships operating in the region should be on high alert. The storm could also bring showers to eastern Taiwan and mountainous areas in northern Taiwan, while central and southern Taiwan could see afternoon thunderstorms, the bureau said. Before rain brought by the storm next Monday, a mostly sunny and hot weekend is likely across the country, the bureau said. Islandwide, daytime high temperatures could hover between 33 and 35 degrees Celsius through Sunday, it said. (By Lee Hsin-Yin)
