In a televised briefing, weather forecaster Aldczar Aurelio said the rains in the western section of Luzon will continue until Sunday or Monday.

The weather will improve in Metro Manila by Sunday night or Monday, while the whole country will have better weather by Monday or Tuesday.

He also said the typhoon will exit the Philippine area of responsibility by Friday afternoon, and will further weaken when it reaches mainland China at night.

Flashfloods and landslides are possible in Pangasinan, Bataan, Mindoro and Northern Palawan.

Sea travel along seaboards of Luzon is also risky, Aurelio said. CDG
