Weathermen are monitoring a typhoon with international name “Maysak,” which is expected to enter the Philippine area of responsibility by Wednesday or Thursday.
Forecaster Denison Estareja of the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration said that once the typhoon enters PAR, it will be named “Chedeng,” the third tropical cyclone to enter the country this year.
Estareja said that due to a weak northeast monsoon, the Batanes, Babuyan, and Calayan groups of islands will experience partly cloudy to at times cloudy skies with isolated light rainshowers.
He said the rest of the country, including Metro Manila, will be partly cloudy to cloudy with isolated rain showers or thunderstorms.
Pagasa said moderate to occasionally strong winds coming from the northeast to east will prevail over extreme Northern Luzon and from the northeast over the eastern section of Luzon and the Visayas and the coastal waters along these areas will be moderate to occasionally rough.
