With the anticipation of El Nino, Taiwan will be facing more Typhoons in 2016. Depending on the Typhoon routes, Taiwan will be deeply effected. If most of the typhoons breach the main island, Taiwan will be challenged with huge amounts of precipitation. If the typhoons just “pass by” the island, Taiwan may be facing a drought.
Taiwan will be faced with a bipolar situation. Either no typhoon breaches the island or all of them lands in Taiwan. The possibility of a drought might not be big this year due to spring showers. However, the effect might last until next year and could pose a problem for the island.
With climate change on the rise, experts say the weather will be more and more unstable in the future.
