HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND AREAS
• Tonight through tomorrow morning: Moderate to heavy rains over mainland Cagayan and Isabela. Light to moderate with at times heavy rains over Babuyan Islands, Aurora, northern portion of Quezon including Polilio Islands, Catanduanes, Camarines Norte, and Camarines Sur.
• Tomorrow morning through evening: Heavy to intense with at times torrential rains over Metro Manila, Zambales, Tarlac, Pampanga, Nueva Ecija, Bulacan, southern portion of Aurora, Rizal, and the northern portion of Quezon including Polilio Islands. Moderate to heavy with at times intense rains over the rest of Cagayan Valley, Cordillera Administrative Region, the northern portion of Aurora, Bataan, Cavite, Laguna, and the central portion of Quezon. Light to moderate with at times heavy rains over Batangas, Camarines Norte, and Catanduanes.
• Tomorrow evening through Monday morning: Heavy to intense with at times torrential rains over Zambales, Bataan, Pampanga, and Bulacan. Moderate to heavy with at times intense rains Metro Manila, Quirino, the rest of Central Luzon, and Cavite. Light to moderate with at times heavy rains over Mt. Province, Ifugao, Benguet, and the rest of CALABARZON.
• Under these conditions, scattered to widespread flooding and rain-induced landslides are expected, 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 over Visayas and the rest of Southern Luzon, especially on their western sections. For more information, refer to the 24-Hour Public Weather Forecast issued at 4:00 PM today. Furthermore, the issuance of Weather Advisory for Southwest Monsoon is not ruled out.
• During the passage of KARDING, winds may reach storm-force in strength within any of the areas where Wind Signal No. 3 is hoisted, while winds may reach gale-force in strength within any of the areas where Wind Signal no.2 is hoisted. 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.
• The highest wind signal that will be hoisted for this typhoon is Wind Signal No. 4.
The combined effects of storm surge and high waves breaking along the coast may cause inundation or flooding over the coastal areas of Aurora, Quezon (east coast, including Polillo Islands), and Camarines Norte.
HAZARDS AFFECTING COASTAL WATERS
• Under the influence of KARDING, a marine gale warning remains in effect over the eastern seaboards of Luzon. For more information, refer to Gale Warning #2 (Intermediate) issued at 11:00 PM today.
• In the next 24 hours, prevailing northeasterlies and the approaching typhoon will also 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
• Typhoon KARDING is forecast to track generally west southwestward or westward in the next 12 hours before turning more westward towards the east coast of southern portion of Aurora or northern portion of Quezon, where it is likely to make landfall tomorrow afternoon or early evening. 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 generally westward over the West Philippine Sea for the remainder of the forecast period.
• KARDING is forecast to continue rapidly intensifying in the near term and may make landfall at or near peak intensity of 150-155 km/h. While it is likely for this tropical cyclone to slightly weaken during its landfall and traverse of Central Luzon due to frictional effects, 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 2:00 AM tomorrow.
