MANILA – Isabela will experience rains and gusty winds due to Tropical Depression (TD) Maymay, which was last spotted 265 kilometers east of Casiguran, Aurora.
The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) on Tuesday afternoon said Maymay packed maximum sustained winds of 45 kph near the center, and gustiness of up to 55 kph.
PAGASA described Maymay’s present movement as “almost stationary.” Earlier in the day, Maymay was moving northeastward at 20 kph.
Tropical Cyclone Wind Signal No. 1 remained hoisted over Isabela, Quirino, Nueva Vizcaya, Aurora, Nueva Ecija, and the extreme northern portion of Quezon (General Nakar, Infanta) including Polillo Islands.
Floods or landslides are likely due to moderate to heavy with at times heavy rains, PAGASA added.
Minimal to minor threat to lives and properties are also possible due to strong winds.
The shearline, meanwhile, will cause scattered to widespread rain showers and thunderstorms over Batanes, Cagayan, Apayao and Kalinga.
Moderate to heavy with at times intense rains may also cause flooding and landslides in these areas.
Both Maymay and the shearline will bring scattered rain showers and thunderstorms over the rest of Cordillera Cagayan Valley regions, and provinces of Ilocos Norte, Ilocos Sur and Aurora.
The rest of the country will have isolated rain showers caused by localized thunderstorms.
Strong winds and rough seas will prevail over Northern Luzon.
The rest of Luzon will have moderate to strong winds and moderate to rough seas.
Elsewhere, winds will be light to moderate with slight to moderate seas. (PNA)
