Storm-enhanced Habagat affecting Phl: PAGASA - Philippine Star

MANILA, Philippines - Tropical storm "Maring" is not expected to hit the Philippines directly but it is enhancing the southwest monsoon, which is now affecting the entire country, the state weather bureau said.

The Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) said that as of 4 p.m., Maring has intensified into a tropical storm and was located at 560 kilometers east of Itbayat, Batanes, packed with maximum sustained winds of 65 kilometers per hour near the center and gustiness of up to 80 kph.

It is forecast to move east northeast at 7 kph and due to its slow movement, and is expected to be out of the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) by Wednesday headed towards Taiwan.

PAGASA said Maring continues to enhance the southwest monsoon, bringing rains that may also trigger flashfloods and landslides over Metro Manila, Ilocos Region, Calabarzon, and Benguet, Zambales, Bataan and Occidental Mindoro.

The weather agency advises residents in these areas to take all the necessary precautionary measures.

PAGASA said that Mindanao, Western Visayas and the rest of Luzon will have cloudy skies with light to moderate rainshowers and thunderstorms while the rest of the Visayas will be partly cloudy to cloudy with isolated rainshowers or thunderstorms.

It added that moderate to strong winds blowing from the southwest will prevail throughout the archipelago and the coastal waters will be moderate to rough.

The weather agency also issued a gale warning as strong to gale force winds associated with the surge of southwest monsoon enhanced by Tropical Storm "Maring" to affect the seaboards of Luzon.

"Fishermen and other small seacrafts are advised not to venture out into the sea while larger sea vessels are alerted against big waves," it said.
