Taiwan Water Corporation (TWC, 台灣自來水公司) released its latest quarterly drinking water report, forecasting "drier-than-normal" water supply conditions islandwide.
The firm said as that Taiwan entered October and November, central and southern regions of the island would see a decline of rainfall.
However, TWC said the water supply would be sufficient by the end of October, with supplies replenished by frontal systems and typhoons.
During the next quarter, from September to November, Taiwan will be caught between the humidity of the ocean area to the east of Taiwan and the drier conditions in the southern China region, according to TWC.
Weather conditions are expected to become drier starting from November, with the possibility of La Nina forming, though its impact is likely to be weak.
Taiwan is set to see an average of 1.2 typhoons in the next quarter, according to TWC.
