‘Paolo’ moves farther away but clouds, rain persist
Typhoon “Paolo” is now outside the Philippine area of responsibility, the state weather bureau said early Sunday.
At 4 a.m., Paolo was located at 1,345 km east northeast of Basco, Batanes, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration’s (Pagasa) early morning bulletin said.
It was moving north northeast at 30 kph, with sustained winds of 185 kph near the center and gustiness of up to 225 kph.
Pagasa said Paolo would continue its track and be at 2,185 km northeast of Basco, Batanes, by Monday morning.
Despite Paolo’s exit, the agency said cloudy skies with scattered light to moderate and at times heavy rain showers will be experienced over the Bicol Region, Eastern Visayas and Palawan due the intertropical convergence zone and local thunderstorms.
Meanwhile, sea travel remains risky over the seaboards of Northern Luzon, the eastern seaboards of Central and Southern Luzon and of Visayas, Pagasa added. /cbb
