Despite no longer being a super typhoon, Yutu is expected to slam into the northern Philippines with flooding rain and damaging winds into early Wednesday, local time.

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

Yutu, known locally as Rosita, will move westward toward the northern Philippines before making landfall in northern Luzon Tuesday morning, local time.

Yutu is expected to strike the coastline with strength equal to a Category 2 or 3 hurricane before weakening as it tracks across the rugged terrain of northern Luzon.

Despite some weakening from Tuesday into Tuesday night, Yutu will bring widespread damaging winds and heavy rainfall capable of producing life-threatening flooding and mudslides.

Strong winds could damage trees and buildings, resulting in power outages and interruption of other utilities into Wednesday. Accompanying heavy rainfall could result in dangerous flooding, mudslides and washouts.

Yutu is exp ected to largely spare the capital city of Manila on the western coast of southern Luzon. The worst conditions in the city will be from midday Tuesday into Tuesday night when occasional downpours and gusty winds can result in localized flooding and transportation disruptions.

Northwest Luzon will continue to experience locally damaging winds and heavy rainfall into Wednesday morning before conditions improve and Yutu tracks westward into the South China Sea.

As Yutu departs the Philippines, it will slowly meander west and then northward in the South China Sea through Friday.

Yutu may weaken into a tropical storm before departing Luz on; however, it will then strengthen back into a typhoon over the waters of the South China Sea during the midweek time frame.

The turn toward the north will put areas from eastern China to Taiwan at risk for impacts from Yutu beginning as early as Thursday and continuing into this weekend.

As Yutu tracks northward, it will encounter hostile atmospheric conditions, causing it to weaken prior to reaching either country. The potential exists for Yutu to dissipate without making landfall in either country.

The exact track and intensity of Yutu will determine the significance of the impacts to China and Taiwan; however, there will be risk for life-threatening conditions even as the tropical cyclone weakens.
