MANILA, Philippines — Typhoon Fabian will continuously bring strong winds over Batanes and Babuyan Islands throughout its passage, according to the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) latest weather bulletin.

This prompted the weather agency to raise Tropical Cyclone Wind Signal #1 over the said areas.

Due to the impact of Typhoon Fabian which enhances the southwest monsoon, Metro Manila and the following areas will experience monsoon rains in the next 24 hours:

Ilocos Region
Abra
Benguet
Zambales
Bataan
Tarlac
Pampanga
Bulacan
Cavite
Batangas
Occidental Mindoro
Oriental Mindoro, Romblon
Northern portion of Palawan including Calamian and Kalayaan Islands

In the next 24 hours, the combined effects of Typhoon Fabian and the southwest monsoon will cause rough to very rough seas over the northern, western, and eastern seaboards of Luzon (including the areas under TCWS #1).

Thus, sea travel is risky for small seacraft over these waters and mariners without the proper experience should immediately seek safe harbor.

Based on the latest forecast track, Typhoon Fabian will move generally westward or west southwestward today (July 22), before it moves north northwestward for the remainder of the forecast period.

It is expected to pass close or make landfall in the vicinity of Miyako, Yaeyama, and Senkaku Islands in the southern Ryukyu Archipelago on Friday (July 23) before it exits the Philippine Area of Responsibility tomorrow evening or morning of Saturday (July 24).

Occasional rains prevail over Metro Manila, the rest of Luzon, W. Visayas – PAGASA

MANILA, Philippines – The southwest monsoon (Habagat) remains the prevailing weather system in the country today, according to the latest forecast from the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA).

This will bring Metro Manila and the rest of Luzon as well as Western Visayas occasional rains throughout the day with a possibility of flooding and rain-induced landslides during moderate to at times heavy rains especially in low-lying areas.

Meanwhile, monsoon rains will be experienced in the areas of Ilocos Region, Benguet, Zambales, Bataan, Tarlac, Pampanga, and Occidental Mindoro due to the impact of Habagat.

Possible flooding and rain-induced landslides are the potential hazards that might be triggered during scattered to widespread moderate to at times heavy rains.

Similarly due to habagat, the rest of the country will have partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rainshowers or thunderstorms which could cause flash floods or landslides during severe thunderstorms.

PAGASA advises the public to take precautionary measures under these conditions and monitor updates of the weather systems through the agency’s websites and other social media platforms.
