WEATHER UPDATE — According to the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa), two Tropical Depressions are spotted near the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR).
PAGASA forecaster Aldczar Aurelio said that Western Visayas, Zamboanga Peninsula, Palawan, Occidental Mindoro, Zambales, and Bataan will have cloudy skies with scattered rain showers or thunderstorms, with the possibility of flash floods or landslides due to moderate to at times heavy rains.
Meanwhile, Metro Manila and the rest of the country will have partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rain showers or thunderstorms, with the possibility of flash floods or landslides during severe thunderstorms.
Effects of the Southwest Monsoon (Habagat) continue to occur in the western sections of Northern and Central Luzon. So for this day, scattered rains are expected.
Pagasa spotted a Tropical Depression located 1,680 km East Northeast of Extreme Northern Luzon (23.6°N, 137.9°E) with maximum sustained winds of 45 km/h near the center and gustiness of up to 55 km/h. It is moving West Southwestward at 20 km/h.
The weather disturbance is outside the PAR, so it has no effect on the country, and it does not influence the Southwest Monsoon.
“Ang susunod na pangalan ng bagyo ay “INDAY” at “JOSE,”” PAGASA said.
(The next name of the storm is “INDAY” and “JOSE”)
Winds will be moderate throughout Extreme Northern Luzon, moving southwest to south, and coastal waters will be moderate.
Winds will be light to moderate throughout the eastern sections of Southern Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao, moving southwest to south, and coastal waters will be slight to moderate.
Winds will also be light to moderate in the rest of the country, moving from southwest to south. Additionally, coastal waters will be slight to moderate.
