Tropical Storm Paolo evolved from a tropical depression but is now outside of the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR), Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) weather forecaster Jun Galang said on Friday. Another low pressure area was recorded at East of Northern Mindanao, Galang added.
Paolo increased its strength outside PAR with maximum winds of 65 kilometers per hour (kph) and gustiness of 80 kph and a speed of 15 kph, the weather bureau added.
Galang said that the new LPA will most likely affect the country within two to three days. It has a high possibility of evolving into a tropical depression.
Metro Manila, the Ilocos Region, Southern Luzon, and Bicol Region will have cloudy skies with moderate rains for the weekend, Galang said. Eastern Visayas, Davao, Cordillera Autonomous Region, Zambales and Bataan will also have cloudy skies with moderate rains.
The remaining parts of the country will experience cloudy skies with isolated rains, Pagasa said.
Moderate to strong winds will affect Luzon and its coastal waters. The rest of the country will have light to moderate winds with slight to moderate seas over the weekend.
