The weather disturbance that developed into Tropical Storm “Emong” (international name: “Nanmadol”) on Sunday already exited the Philippine area of responsibility by Monday morning, but the southwest monsoon is expected to continue bringing rains in Luzon and Visayas.

In its 24-hour forecast issued 4 p.m. on Monday, the Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) said “Nanmadol” intensified into a severe tropical storm as it exited, packing maximum sustained winds of 90 kilometers per hour and gustiness of up to 115 kph.

However, as of 4 p.m., it was already 885 kilometers north northeast of Basco, Batanes, outside the Philippine area of responsibility. “Nanmadol” is expected to move north-northeast at 30 kph.

Nevertheless, Pagasa said the southwest monsoon continues to affect the western section of Luzon and Visayas.
