MANILA, Philippines – A tropical depression is expected to enter the Philippine area of responsibility (PAR) in the next 24 hours, the Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) said on Friday.

At 2 p.m., the tropical depression north of the Caroline Islands was estimated at 1,310 kilometers East of Visayas, Pagasa said in its latest weather advisory.

The tropical depression is seen to move North Northwest slowly and has maximum sustained winds of 55 kilometers per hour, it added.

“The next update will be incorporated in the 5 a.m. public weather forecast tomorrow [Saturday],” the state-run weather bureau said.

It will be called “Pedring” once it enters the PAR.
