A low pressure that entered the Philippine Area of Responsibility on Wednesday has developed into a tropical depression and was named “Perla.”

The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) last spotted Perla at 1,190 kilometers east of Baler, Aurora at 8 a.m. It was carrying maximum sustained winds of 45 kilometers per hour (kph) near the center and gustiness of 55 kph. It was moving in west-northwest at a speed of 20 kph.

No alert signal has been raised so far but Pagasa expects Perla to bring “adverse weather condition” over Batanes, Cagayan (including Babuyan Islands) and Apayao by Friday evening or Saturday morning.

Pagasa also warned against sea travel for small sea vessels over the northern and western seaboards of Northern Luzon because of rough sea conditions associated with the northeasterly surface windflow.

Perla is the 16th tropical cyclone to enter PAR this year.
