Tropical storm “Egay” (international name: Linfa) continued its track toward Northern Luzon but at a faster pace, the state weather bureau said Saturday.

The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) said that as of 10 a.m., Egay was moving northwest at a speed of 13 kilometers per hour. It was last spotted 280 kilometers east of Baler.

The rest of Aurora, Nueva Ecija, Nueva Vizcaya, Ifugao, Benguet, Mt. Province, Kalinga, Apayao, Abra, Ilocos Norte, Ilocos Sur, Babuyan and Calayan Group of Islands.

Pagasa weather forecaster Aldczar Aurelio said in a televised briefing that Egay is expected to make landfall at the northeastern part of Cagayan on Sunday morning or afternoon.

Aurelio added that Metro Manila and the regions of Bicol, Calabarzon and Mimaropa will experience moderate to occasionally heavy rains and thunderstorms because of “habagat” (southwest monsoon). The habagat also affects Visayas and the western section of Mindanao.

Improved weather can be expected in Metro Manila by Monday, Pagasa said. IDL
