MANILA, Philippines – The low-pressure area (LPA) located east of Aurora province has developed into tropical depression ‘Perla’ at 8:00 AM on Wednesday (October 16), state weather service PAGASA said.
As of 3:00 p.m., the center of TD Perla was located 1,005 km East of Tuguegarao City.
It is moving West Northwest at 25 kph packed with maximum sustained winds of 45 kph near the center and gustiness of up to 55 kph.
PAGASA has not issued a tropical cyclone wind signal (TCWS) yet over any part of the country.
However, the weather system may still bring adverse weather conditions over Batanes, Cagayan (including the Babuyan Islands), and Apayao beginning Friday evening (October 18) or Saturday morning (October 19).
According to PAGASA, TD Perla is less likely to develop into a tropical storm.
The weather agency, however, warned that sea travel remains risky for small sea vessels over the northern and western seaboards of Northern Luzon due to potentially rough sea conditions associated with the northeasterly surface wind flow.
PAGASA issued gale warning of 2.8-4.5 meters in Batanes, Cgayan inlcuding Babuyan Islands, Ilocos Norte, Ilocos Sur, La Union, and Pangasinan.
MANILA, Philippines – Tropical Depression (TD) Carina is forecast to weaken into a low-pressure area (LPA) on Tuesday (July 14) afternoon or Wednesday morning (July 15).
According to the latest update from the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA), the weather system is seen to move towards the north direction while heading towards the Bashi Channel and the southern portion of Taiwan.
As of 11:00AM on Tuesday, TD Carina was located at 155km west of Basco, Batanes.
It is moving toward the northwest direction at 25 km/h packed with maximum sustained winds of 45 km/h and gustiness of 55 km/h.
PAGASA said tropical Cyclone Wind Signal No. 1 (TWCS) remains over Batanes which means isolated light to moderate rains with at times heavy rain showers will prevail today until tomorrow as well as in nearby areas, the Babuyan Islands and Ilocos Norte.
Metro Manila and the rest of the country, meanwhile, will experience partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rainshowers today and tomorrow due to localized thunderstorms.
MANILA, Philippines — At 2:00 am on Monday (July 13), the low pressure area (LPA) spotted east of Cagayan province has developed into tropical depression Carina, according to the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA).
As of 4:00 AM today, the weather system was located at 315 km East of Tuguegarao City, Cagayan packed with maximum sustained winds of 45 km/h and gustiness of up to 55 km/h. It is moving westward at 20 km/h.
Tropical Cyclone Wind Signal (TCWS) #1 is raised over the areas of Batanes, Babuyan Group of Islands, and Northern Cagayan specifically Sta. Ana, Gonzaga, Sta. Teresita, Bugey, Eastern Lal-O and Baggao.)
This means moderate to heavy rains will prevail over Babuyan Islands and the eastern section of mainland Cagayan and Isabela.
Meanwhile, light to moderate with at times heavy rains over Ilocos Region, Cordillera Administrative Region, the rest of Cagayan Valley, Aurora, and the northern portion of Quezon including Polillo Islands.
Moderate to rough seas will be experienced over the northern and eastern seaboards of Luzon in the next 24 hours thus small seacrafts are advised not to venture out to sea.
The center of TD Carina is forecast to pass close to the northeastern portion of Cagayan and the Babuyan Islands between tonight and Tuesday morning.
A landfall scenario over these areas remains likely, according to PAGASA.
Metro Manila, Western Visayas, and the rest of Luzon, meanwhile, will experience cloudy skies with scattered rainshowers and thunderstorms due to the effects of TD Carina.
Mindanao and the rest of Visayas will have partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rainshowers mostly in the afternoon or evening due to localized thunderstorms.
