MANILA, Philippines — Eight to eleven tropical cyclones will likely affect the Philippines for the remainder of the year, the state weather bureau said.

Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) weather specialist Chris Perez said two or three tropical cyclones are still expected in August.


“How many tropical cyclones are we expecting? For the month of August, two or three at least, and so far wala pa naman tayong namomonitor hanggang sa araw na ito (we have not monitored any until today); and then by September, two to three tropical cyclones; October, two to three tropical cyclones; November and December, one or two tropical cyclones; and then by January, one or none,” Perez said during the Oplan Balik Eskwela Launch and Command Conference for the school year 2023-2024 on Tuesday.

He also added that the tropical cyclones that will affect the country towards the end of 2023 may or may not travel directly to the country.

“This image, ang kino-convey ng image na ito, pwedeng yung mga bagyo natin during the forecast period, pwedeng tumawid ng kalupaan ng ating bansa, pwedeng kumilos nang malapit sa gilid ng ating bansa, o pwedeng nasa loob lang ng ating area of responsibility sa Pacific Ocean,” Perez added.

(The image conveys that tropical cyclones during our forecast period could traverse through the country, could also move in the borders of our country, or would only stay in our area of responsibility in the Pacific Ocean.)

As of Wednesday, six typhoons have already been detected by the Pagasa that entered the Philippine area of responsibility, the latest being typhoon Falcon (international name: Khanun).
