Winds reaching gale-force strength may still be experienced any of the areas where Wind Signal No. 2 is in effect. Areas under Wind Signal No.1 may experience strong winds (strong breeze to near gale strength) throughout the passage of the tropical cyclone.
HAZARDS AFFECTING COASTAL WATERS
Under the influence of the surge of the Northeast Monsoon and PAENG, a marine gale warning remains in effect over the seaboards of Luzon and the western and eastern seaboards of Visayas. For more information, refer to Gale Warning #14 issued at 5:00 AM today.
TRACK AND INTENSITY OUTLOOK
• Tropical Storm PAENG has exited the landmass of Luzon at 2:00 AM today. On the forecast track, PAENG will track generally westward until this afternoon before turning north northwestward. The storm is forecast to maintain a generally north northwestward heading by tonight through Tuesday, then turn northwestward on Wednesday as it moves closer towards southern China. PAENG will likely exit the Philippine Area of Responsibility tomorrow morning or afternoon.
• While over the West Philippine Sea, PAENG is forecast to re-intensify into a severe tropical storm within 24 hours and may reach typhoon category by late evening tomorrow or on Tuesday morning. However, a weakening trend is expected by late Tuesday as the tropical cyclone encounters another surge of the Northeast Monsoon.
Considering these developments, the public and disaster risk reduction and management offices concerned are advised to take all necessary measures to protect life and property. Persons living in areas identified to be highly or very highly susceptible to these hazards are advised to follow evacuation and other instructions from local officials. For heavy rainfall warnings, thunderstorm/rainfall advisories, and other severe weather information specific to your area, please monitor products issued by your local PAGASA Regional Services Division.
The next tropical cyclone bulletin will be issued at 11:00 AM today.
