THE Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) lifted all tropical warning signals on Wednesday morning as typhoon “Rosita” (international name: “Yutu”) continues to weaken as it hovers the West Philippine sea.

In its 5 a. m. weather bulletin, Pagasa said the typhoon was 210 kilometers (km) northwest of Dagupan City, Pangasinan, with maximum sustained winds of 100 kilometers per hour (kph), and gustiness of 120 kph.

Light to moderate rains due to the trough of Rosita may be experienced over Abra, Mountain Province, Benguet, Ifugao, Ilocos Sur,  La Union, Batanes, Pangasinan, Cagayan, Isabela, Quirino, Nueva Vizcaya, Apayao, Ilocos Norte, and Aurora.

The rest of Metro Manila will have partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rain showers.

Fishermen with small boats are advised not to venture over the western seaboards of Central and Southern Luzon and northern Luzon.

Typhoon Rosita is expected to leave the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) and head towards China later in the day.
