After battering the Mariana Islands in the western Pacific at midweek, Super Typhoon Yutu will continue to charge toward southeastern Asia this weekend.

For the ne xt few days, Yutu will churn in the open waters of the Philippine Sea. Cruises, cargo ships and other sea-faring transportation will need to reroute or risk being battered by high winds and dangerous seas this weekend.

AccuWeather meteorologists currently expect Yutu to make a close pass to the the northern Philippines and southern and eastern Taiwan as a powerful typhoon, with wind speeds equivalent to those of a Category 3 hurricane early next week.

Anyone that lives or has interests in this part of the world should keep a close eye on this storm and start preparing for potential tropical impacts.< /p>

The storm's influence will first be noticeable to those on land on Monday, when clouds, showers and gusty winds will begin streaming across the Batanes, Babuyan Islands and northern and eastern coastal portions of Luzon as well as southern and eastern Taiwan.

The storm is expected to largely spare the capital city of Manila on the western coast of the Philippines as well as Taipei in northern Taiwan.

Strong winds could damage trees and buildings, resulting in power outages and interruption of other utilities beginning o n Tuesday. Accompanying heavy rains could result in dangerous flooding, mudslides and washouts.

Transportation delays are likely as the storm makes its closest pass to land on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Many areas previously impacted by Typhoon Mangkhut in mid-September could face another round of destructive tropical weather.

The storm is also expected to slow its forward speed as it approaches land, increasing the duration that Yutu could impact the islands.

As the storm slows, it could sit between Luzon and Taiwan for a time before continuing westward into the South China Sea or nort heastward to Japan late next week.
