‘Josie’ on its way to Taiwan; new LPA spotted east of S. Luzon
Tropical Depression “Josie” is on its way out of the Philippine area of responsibility (PAR) early Monday but a new low pressure area is expected to enter PAR within the day.
Josie will nevertheless continue to enhance the southwest monsoon and may trigger floods and landslides over Ilocos Region, Zambales, Bataan, Cavite, Batangas, Mindoro, Palawan, and Western Visayas, the Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) said.
Occasional rains are seen over Metro Manila, and the rest of Luzon and Visayas
Josie was last spotted 275 kilometers north-northeast of Basco, Batanes, moving northwest at 20 kilometers per hour towards Taiwan.
Meanwhile, the new LPA is expected to intensify into a tropical depression in the next 24 to 48 hours. It was last spotted 1,230 kilometers east of Southern Luzon.
It will be locally named “Karding” once it intensifies, according to Pagasa.
Mindanao, on the other hand, will experience partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rain showers. /kga
