Observatory cancels all remaining cyclone signals

The Observatory said it had cancelled all tropical cyclone signals at 2.20pm on Sunday.

Earlier in the afternoon, the Observatory replaced the number 3 signal with the number 1 signal, and said it would only cancel the remaining signals when Lionrock no longer posed a threat to the SAR.

The SAR spent a good part of the weekend in typhoon lockdown, and the Observatory only withdrew the No 8 storm signal at 4.40am on Sunday, 22 hours after it was issued.

While better weather is expected early next week, Tropical Cyclone Kompasu is forecast to intensify gradually and move towards the vicinity of the Luzon Strait in the next couple of days, moving into the South China Sea in midweek.
