Signal No. 2 over Batanes for ‘Jenny’

Tropical Cyclone Wind Signal (TCWS) No. 2 is still hoisted over Batanes as Typhoon Jenny moves north northwestward over the Philippine Sea, the weather bureau said Tuesday afternoon.

Jenny was last tracked 325 kilometers east northeast of Itbayat, Batanes. It maintained its strength, packing maximum sustained winds of 155 kilometers per hour (kph) near the center, and gustiness of up to 190 kph.

Gale-force winds will prevail in Batanes.

On the other hand, strong winds will prevail in areas where TCWS No. 1 remains hoisted: Cagayan including Babuyan Islands, the northern and eastern portions of Isabela (Maconacon, Divilacan, Palanan, Santa Maria, San Pablo, Tumauini, Cabagan, Ilagan City, San Mariano, Santo Tomas, Dinapigue, Benito Soliven, Naguilian, Gamu, Quirino, Delfin Albano, Quezon, Mallig), Apayao, the northeastern portion of Abra (Tineg, Lacub, Malibcong), the northern portion of Kalinga (Balbalan, Pinukpuk, Rizal, City of Tabuk), and Ilocos Norte.

Meanwhile, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) said Jenny will continue to enhance the southwest monsoon, causing occasional rains over the western portions of Central and Southern Luzon, and the Visayas in the next three days.

Gusty conditions due to the enhanced southwest monsoon continue to prevail in Aurora, Bataan, Bulacan, Metro Manila, Calabarzon, Bicol Region, and most of Mimaropa and Western Visayas.

Rough to very rough seas are forecast over the coastal waters along the seaboards of Northern Luzon.

Jenny will also cause moderate to rough seas over the coastal waters of northern Aurora.

PAGASA advised mariners of motor bancas and similarly-sized vessels to take precautionary measures while venturing to the sea.

The typhoon is forecast to exit the Philippine Area of Responsibility on Thursday.
