MANILA, Philippines — Tropical Depression Emong is seen to develop into a tropical storm in the next 12 hours, the
Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) said on Monday afternoon (July 5).

However, PAGASA said the weather system’s high movement speed is still affecting further intensification.

Until tonight, the tropical depression is forecast to continue moving generally northwestward as it approaches the Extreme Northern Luzon-Taiwan area.

Based on its forecast track, the center of TD Emong is seen to pass close or make landfall in the vicinity of the Batanes-Babuyan Islands area this afternoon or tonight.

However, PAGASA said there is an increasing chance that the landfall may happen at a much earlier time due to the fast movement of the tropical depression.

TD Emong may likely exit the Philippine Area of Responsibility early morning on Tuesday (July 6).

After passing in the vicinity of extreme northern Luzon as a tropical storm, TD Emong may weaken into a tropical depression due to its interaction with the rugged terrain of southern Taiwan.
