Based on the weather bulletin of Pagasa issued at 4 p.m., the center of the tropical depression was now located 505 kilometers east of Virac, Catanduanes. The tropical cyclone packs maximum sustained winds of 45 kilometers per hour (kph) near the center and gustiness of up to 55 kph. It is moving south-southeastward at 15 kph.
Meanwhile, Pagasa also said that the intertropical convergence zone (ITCZ) affects the rest of the country.
Pagasa said Metro Manila, Calabarzon, Central Luzon, Ilocos Region, Bicol Region, Eastern Visayas, Benguet, Abra, Batanes, Babuyan Islands, Mindoro Provinces, and Marinduque will experience cloudy skies with scattered rain showers and thunderstorms due to the ITCZ or the trough of tropical depression Maring.
