TD to enter PAR Tuesday

State weather bureau Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) on Sunday said it is monitoring a tropical depression outside the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) which is expected to enter the country on Tuesday.

In an interview, PAGASA weather forecaster Aldczar Aurelio said that as of 4:00 a.m. center of Tropical Depression outside the PAR was estimated based on all available data at 2,020 km east of Mindanao (8.3N, 144.7E), with maximum winds of 45 kph near the center. It is forecast to move northwest at 10 kph.

Should the tropical depression maintain its speed and movement, Aurelio said it will be locally named 'Butchoy', the second tropical cyclone to affect the country this year.

He said that since tropical depression is still far, PAGASA is yet to confirm whether it will make a landfall. However, it is expected to intensify as it remains in the sea.

He added that the public should expect one to three tropical cyclones to affect the country for the month of July.

Aurelio said that the Intertropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ) or the thick clouds coming from the south of Asia, is considered a breeding ground for low pressure areas (LPAs) or potential cyclones affecting Palawan, Visayas and Mindanao.

For Sunday's forecast, the ITCZ will bring cloudy skies with light to moderate rains and thunderstorms over Visayas, Mindanao, Bicol Region and MIMAROPA while partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rainshowers or thunderstorms will prevail over Metro Manila and the rest of Luzon.

Light to moderate winds blowing from the southwest to southeast will prevail over Luzon and Visayas and coming from the southwest to west over Mindanao. Coastal waters throughout the archipelago will be slight to moderate.

The state weather bureau has not issued a gale warning which means it is safe for fisherfolks to venture into the seas. (PNA)
