HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND AREAS
• Until this morning: Heavy to intense with at times torrential rains over Zambales and Bataan. Moderate to heavy with at times intense rains over the Metro Manila, Tarlac, Pampanga, Bulacan, Rizal, Cavite, the western portion of Batangas, and northern portion of Occidental Mindoro. Light to moderate with at times heavy rains over the rest of Central Luzon, Nueva Vizcaya, Quirino, Laguna, the rest of Batangas, Oriental Mindoro, and the rest of Occidental Mindoro.
• This morning through afternoon: Moderate to heavy with at times intense rains over the Zambales, Bataan, Tarlac, and Pampanga.
• Under these conditions, widespread flooding and rain-induced landslides are still 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 enhanced by KARDING, occasional to monsoon rains are still possible in the next 24 hours over the western sections of Southern Luzon (including Metro Manila) and Visayas.
• During the passage of KARDING, areas under Wind Signal No. 4 will still experience winds peaking at typhoon-force strength, while winds may reach storm-force in strength within any of the areas where Wind Signal No. 3 is hoisted. Gale-force conditions are likely any of the areas where Wind Signal no.2 is hoisted, while 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.
• Wind Signals will continue to be lowered or lifted in the succeeding bulletins as KARDING further weakens and moves across Central Luzon.
Moderate risk of storm surge remains possible over the exposed and low-lying coastal localities of Pangasinan, Zambales, and Bataan. The combined effects of storm surge and high waves breaking along the coast may cause life-threatening and damaging inundation or flooding.
HAZARDS AFFECTING COASTAL WATERS
Under the influence of KARDING, a marine gale warning remains in effect over the seaboards of Luzon. For more information, refer to Gale Warning #5 issued at 5:00 PM yesterday.
TRACK AND INTENSITY OUTLOOK
• KARDING is forecast to emerge over the West Philippine Sea via the coastal waters of Zambales or Pangasinan in the next three hours. Afterwards, the typhoon will continue tracking generally westward over the West Philippine Sea towards Vietnam for the remainder of the forecast period. On the track forecast, it will exit the Philippine Area of Responsibility tonight.
• KARDING is forecast to continue weakening during its traverse of Luzon although it is highly likely that this tropical cyclone will remain a typhoon while crossing the landmass. Re-intensification is forecast to occur once the typhoon is over the West Philippine Sea.
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 5:00 AM today.
