UNTV News   •   December 13, 2021


MANILA, Philippines — The tropical depression outside the Philippine area of responsibility (PAR) has maintained its strength while continuing to move westward according to state weather bureau PAGASA.

The weather disturbance was last located 1,760 km east of Mindanao, packing maximum sustained winds of 55 km/h near the center as it moves westward at 10 km/h.

The tropical depression is forecast to enter the PAR region as a severe tropical storm on Tuesday (14 December) evening and will then be named ‘Odette’, PAGASA said in its 11:00 a.m. advisory.

“This tropical cyclone is forecast to gradually intensify within the forecast period and may reach typhoon category by Wednesday,” it added.

Based on current track and intensity, there is a high chance that tropical cyclone wind signals (TCWS) will be hoisted for Visayas, large portions of Mindanao, and several provinces in Southern Luzon due to the threat of strong to typhoon-force winds.

“The highest possible wind signal that may be hoisted is TCWS #3. Localities situated in the eastern portions of Visayas and Mindanao may be placed under TCWS #1 as early as Tuesday afternoon or evening,” PAGASA said.

Heavy rainfall over Visayas, large portions of Mindanao, and several provinces in Southern Luzon may be experienced as the tropical cyclone passes over the central portion of the archipelago.

Residents over the northern and eastern portions of Northern Luzon and the eastern portion of Central Luzon are also advised to monitor for updates regarding possible heavy rainfall which may occur in relation to the behavior of the shear line during and after the passage of this tropical cyclone.
