Taipei, July 26 (CNA) A tropical depression that formed east of the Philippines on Saturday could bring rain to the eastern half of the country from next Wednesday, the Central Weather Bureau said. The depression, which remained some 2,000 kilometers from Taiwan as of Saturday evening, is likely to continue strengthening as it moves toward Taiwan, forecasters said. Whether it will develop into a tropical storm, however, depends on the strength of the high pressure system over the Pacific, the bureau said. Before Wednesday, most parts of Taiwan are likely to see typical summer weather, with sporadic thunderstorms in the afternoon, it said. Daytime highs are expected to hit 33-35 degrees Celsius islandwide, according to the bureau. (By Angela Tsai and Lee Hsin-Yin)
