MANILA, Philippines – Tropical Storm Enteng is expected to exit the Philippine area of responsibility (PAR) Sunday afternoon but is still expected to spawn rains in many parts of Luzon and the Visayas, the state weather bureau said Sunday morning.
In its 5 a.m. weather bulletin, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) said “Enteng” is expected to leave PAR this afternoon.
“Today, the southwest monsoon enhanced by ENTENG and the Low Pressure Area (LPA) west of Zambales will bring monsoon rains over Pangasinan, Benguet, Zambales, Bataan, Mimaropa and Antique, and occasional rains over Metro Manila, Calabarzon, Bicol region, and the rest of Ilocos region, Cordillera Administrative Region, Central Luzon, and Visayas,” Pagasa stated in its latest weather bulletin.
Pagasa likewise warned of possible flash floods and landslides in rain-affected areas.
“Enteng” was 445 kilometers east northeast of Basco, Batanes as of 4am., with maximum sustained wind speed of 65 kilometers per hour near the center and gusitess of up to80 kilometers per hour.
It was moving north at 30 kilometers per hour.
Pagasa also issued gale warnings over the seaboards of Pangasinan, Zambales, Bataan, western coast of Batangas, western coast of Occidental Mindoro including Lubang Island, and western coast of Palawan including Calamian Islands (2.8 to 4.0 m); Batanes, Cagayan including Babuyan Islands, and Isabela (2.8 to 3.4 m).
Sea travel is risky over these areas due to rough to very rough seas.
