Bataan and Southern Zambales are now under tropical cyclone warning signal (TCWS) No. 2.

Meanwhile, Signal No. 1 is up over Metro Manila, Bulacan, Pampanga, Cavite, Batangas, rest of Zambales and the rest of northern Occidental Mindoro.

All tropical cyclone warning signals in previously affected areas are now lifted.

The estimated rainfall still ranges from moderate to heavy within the 250-km diameter of the tropical storm, Pagasa added.

Salome is expected to move west-northwest at 20 kilometers and will exit the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) by Saturday morning. GLEE JALEA
