At least three areas in extreme Northern Luzon remain under storm warning signal Wednesday as storm “Nando” continues to move away from the country.
As of 4 a.m. the storm was spotted at 120 kilometers east of Itbayat, Batanes, moving north-northwest at 15 km per hour.
PAGASA said Nando’s winds had increased from 75 kph Tuesday afternoon to 85 kph shortly after midnight yesterday, and its gustiness from 90 kph to 100 kph.
Storm signal number 2 was hoisted over Batanes Group of Islands, while signal number 1 remained hoisted over Calayan and Babuyan Group of Islands.
Nando is not expected to make landfall in any part of the country and will be out of Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) by Thursday morning or afternoon.
PAGASA has spotted a low pressure area (LPA) in the West Philippine Sea that continues to affect the southwest monsoon.
The LPA could intensify into a tropical depression but it is not expected to enter the country.
Metro Manila and parts of Southern Luzon will be cloudy skies with light to moderate rains due to the effects of the monsoon.
Visayas and Mindanao will be partly cloudy to cloudy with isolated light rains.
