HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND AREAS
• Tonight through tomorrow early morning: Light to moderate with at times heavy rains over Batanes, Cagayan, Isabela, the northern portion of Aurora, Catanduanes, Camarines Norte, and Camarines Sur.
• Rest of tomorrow through Monday early morning: Heavy to intense with at times torrential rains over Aurora, Nueva Ecija, Tarlac, Pangasinan, and the northern portion of Zambales. Moderate to heavy with at times intense rains over the rest of Central Luzon. Moderate to heavy rains over Cagayan, Isabela, Quirino, Nueva Vizcaya, Cordillera Administrative Region, Ilocos Provinces, La Union, Metro Manila, and CALABARZON.
• Under these conditions, scattered flooding and rain-induced landslides are possible, especially in areas that are highly or very highly susceptible to these hazard as identified in hazard maps and in localities with significant antecedent rainfall.
• Due to the Southwest Monsoon partly influenced by KARDING, occasional rains are also possible beginning today or tomorrow over most of Southern Luzon and Visayas, especially over their western sections. As such, the issuance of Weather Advisory for Southwest Monsoon is not ruled out.
• Winds may reach gale-force in strength in any of the areas where Wind Signal no.2 is hoisted throughout the passage of KARDING. Strong winds (strong breeze to near gale strength) will be experienced within any of the areas where Wind Signal No. 1 is currently in effect.
• Per latest track and intensity forecast, the most likely highest wind signal that will be hoisted is Wind Signal No. 4.
• Under the influence of Severe Tropical Storm KARDING, a Gale Warning is in effect over the eastern seaboards of Luzon. For more information, refer to Gale Warning #1 issued at 5:00 PM today.
• In the next 24 hours, a preceding northeasterlies and the approaching severe tropical storm may bring moderate to rough seas (1.5 to 3.5 m) over the northern and western seaboards of Northern Luzon. These conditions may be risky for those using small seacrafts. Mariners are advised to take precautionary measures when venturing out to sea and, if possible, avoid navigating in these conditions.
TRACK AND INTENSITY OUTLOOK
• Severe Tropical Storm KARDING is forecast to track generally west southwestward to westward towards the east coast of Aurora or northern portion of Quezon, where it is likely to make landfall tomorrow afternoon. After crossing Central Luzon, the tropical cyclone is forecast to emerge over the West Philippine Sea tomorrow late evening or Monday early morning. KARDING will then continue tracking westward over the West Philippine Sea for the remainder of the forecast period.
• This tropical cyclone is forecast to intensify into a typhoon in the next 12 hours and may further intensify prior to landfall. While it is likely for this tropical cyclone to slightly weaken due to land interaction during its traverse over Central Luzon, it is highly likely that KARDING will remain a typhoon while crossing the landmass.
Considering these developments, the public and disaster risk reduction and management offices concerned are advised to take all necessary measures to protect life and property. Persons living in areas identified to be highly or very highly susceptible to these hazards are advised to follow evacuation and other instructions from local officials. For heavy rainfall warnings, thunderstorm/rainfall advisories, and other severe weather information specific to your area, please monitor products issued by your local PAGASA Regional Services Division.
The next tropical cyclone bulletin will be issued at 8:00 PM today.
