South China's typhoon season apparently isn't over yet, with one (hopefully) last storm headed our way this year.
Early this morning China's National Meteorological Center released a blue typhoon warning, their lowest level of weather alert, for tropical storm Haikui.
The storm developed near the Philippines and entered the South China Sea today. It's expected to strengthen as it moves northwest, barely grazing Guangdong and hitting Hainan.
As of 10am this morning, Haikui was 780 kilometers away from the city of Sansha, Hainan, with a maximum wind speed of 18 meters per second. According to SZnews.com, the storm could potentially grow to have a max wind speed of 33-38 meters per second.
Despite the worrisome news, most of Guangdong probably won't see a direct impact. Shenzhen and Guangzhou will get chillier and wetter weather over the next five days, though, so be sure to pack an umbrella and light jacket when going out.

Haikui, meaning 'anemone,' is the 24th storm of the 2017 typhoon season.
