• Winds of at most storm-force strength may occur within any of the areas where Wind Signal No. 3 is hoisted, while winds reaching reach gale-force strength are possible within any of the areas where Wind Signal No. 2 is in effect. Areas under Wind Signal No.1 may experience strong winds (strong breeze to near gale strength) throughout the passage of the tropical cyclone.
• The surge of the Northeast Monsoon enhanced by PAENG will also bring strong winds with gusts reaching gale-force strength over Batanes, Babuyan Islands, Ilocos Norte, the northern and eastern portions of mainland Cagayan, and the northern portion of Apayao.
There is minimal to moderate risk of storm surge of up to 2.0 m in height which may cause inundation or flooding in the low-lying and exposed coastal areas of mainland Bicol Region, Catanduanes, Aurora, Quezon including Polillo Islands, Marinduque, the northern portion of Masbate including Ticao and Burias Islands, and the eastern portion of Batangas. For more information refer to Storm Surge Warning #4 issued at 2:00 AM today.
HAZARDS AFFECTING COASTAL WATERS

TRACK AND INTENSITY OUTLOOK
• Severe Tropical Storm PAENG is forecast to continue moving west northwestward through Sunday across Luzon. On the forecast track, the center of PAENG will traverse the Bicol Peninsula until this noon before crossing the CALABARZON-Metro Manila-southern Central Luzon area this early afternoon through tomorrow early morning.
• Frictional effects associated with interaction with the Luzon landmass may result in weakening into a tropical storm within 24 hours, possibly earlier. However, PAENG may re-intensify into a severe tropical storm once it reaches the West Philippine Sea.
