On Wednesday, the extension of Tropical Depression “Ineng” is expected to bring rains in some areas of the country, according to PAGASA.
Ineng was last seen at 975 km east of Virac, Catanduanes or 1,245 km east of Infanta, Quezon. It is moving north at 10km/h and containing maximum sustained winds of 55 km/h and gustiness of 70 km/h.
The trough of the tropical depression will affect Visayas, MIMAROPA, Bicol Region, Zamboanga Peninsula, the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao, Northern Mindanao, Caraga, and Davao Region, bringing cloudy skies with scattered rains and thunderstorms.
Meanwhile, Batanes and the Babuyan Group of Islands will experience the similar weather because of the southwest monsoon or habagat.
PAGASA also warned that flash floods or landslides may occur caused by the scattered light to moderate to occasional heavy rains in the affected areas.
On the other hand, partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rains brought by localized thunderstorms may be experienced in Metro Manila and the rest of the country.
In the meantime, the state bureau noted that Ineng is not likely to landfall, but may strengthen into a tropical storm within the next 12 to 24 hours. On Sunday, it is expected to exit the Philippine Area of Responsibility.
