Strong winds (strong breeze to near gale strength) may be experienced within any of the areas where Wind Signal No. 1 is currently in effect.
HAZARDS AFFECTING COASTAL WATERS
• Under the influence of MAYMAY combined with the surge of Northeast Monsoon, Marine Gale Warning is in effect over the northern seaboards of Northern Luzon, and the eastern seaboard of Central and Southern Luzon. For more information, refer to Gale Warning #4 issued at 5:00 AM today.
• In the next 24 hours, the strong surge of Northeast Monsoon may also bring moderate to rough seas (1.5 to 3.0 m) over the western seaboard of Central Luzon. These conditions may be risky for those using small seacrafts. Mariners are advised to take precautionary measures when venturing out to sea and, if possible, avoid navigating in these conditions.
TRACK AND INTENSITY OUTLOOK
• Tropical Depression “MAYMAY” is forecast to decelerate and generally move southwestward in the next 48 hours. On the forecast track, the center of this tropical cyclone is forecast to make landfall in the vicinity of southern portion of Aurora or northern portion of Quezon tomorrow afternoon or evening. Afterwards, the center of “MAYMAY” will move west southwestward and cross several provinces in Central Luzon before emerging over the West Philippine Sea by Thursday morning or afternoon.
• “MAYMAY” developed into a tropical depression at 12:00 AM today. This tropical cyclone is forecast to maintain its category in the next 48 hours. The possibility of being downgraded into a Low-Pressure Area is likely as it crosses the Central Luzon.
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.
