• ‘Ineng’ exits PH, ‘habagat’ continues to bring rains in Luzon Monday


    Typhoon “Ineng” is now outside the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) heading towards Japan as all public storm warning signals in the country were lifted, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) said on Monday.
    PAGASA weather forecaster Jun Galang told Philippines News Agency (PNA) that Ineng has left the PAR around 12 midnight and as of now is already in the vicinity of Okinawa, Japan.
    Ineng is the second tropical cyclone to visit the country this month and the ninth for this year.
    However, he noted that though it is already out of the Philippine territory, it would continue to enhance the southwest monsoon or “hanging habagat” on Monday.
    Due to the effect of the typhoon-enhanced southwest monsoon, Galang said Metro Manila and parts of Luzon, especially its western section, will remain to have cloudy skies with intermittent light to moderate rains within two days that may trigger flash floods and landslides.
    He said the rest of the country will experience partly cloudy to cloudy skies with possible isolated rains due to localized thunderstorms.
    He noted starting Tuesday expect a weather improvement in most parts of the country with isolated thunderstorms.
    Galang said due to gale warning he still advised fishing boats and other small seacrafts not to venture out into the seaboards of Northern and Central Luzon and the western and southern seaboards of Southern Luzon.
    He added that so far they have not monitored any weather disturbance near the PAR within the next two to three days.
    Galang said the next tropical cyclone to enter the country would be locally named “Jenny,” the tenth tropical cyclone to affect the coutry this year.
    Cloudy skies with light to moderate rains and isolated thunderstorms will be experienced over western Visayas while partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated thunderstorms will prevail over the rest of the country.
    It added moderate to strong winds blowing from the southwest will prevail over the entire archipelago with moderate to rough seas. PNA
