HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND AREAS
• Until noon today: Moderate to heavy with at times intense rains over Zambales, Bataan, and Lubang Islands. Light to moderate with at times heavy rains over the western portion of Pangasinan.
• Under these conditions, scattered flooding and rain-induced landslides are still 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.
• Occasional to monsoon rains are still possible in the next 24 hours over the western sections of Central Luzon, Southern Luzon, and Visayas, especially as the rainbands of KARDING moves further away from the landmass. For more information, refer to the 24-Hour Public Weather Forecast issued at 4:00 AM today and the Weather Advisory #3 (Intermediate) issued at 5:00 AM today.
• Gale-force conditions remain possible within any of the areas where Wind Signal no.2 is hoisted, while strong winds (strong breeze to near gale strength) may still be experienced within any of the areas where Wind Signal No. 1 is currently in effect.
• Rapid de-escalation of wind signals will continue as KARDING moves further away from the landmass of Luzon.
HAZARDS AFFECTING COASTAL WATERS
• Under the influence of KARDING, a Marine Gale Warning remains in effect over the western seaboards of Northern and Central Luzon. For more information, refer to Gale Warning #6 issued at 5:00 AM today.
• In the next 24 hours, the enhanced Southwest Monsoon may also bring moderate to rough seas (1.5 to 3.0 m) over the western seaboards of Southern Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao. 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
KARDING is forecast to continue tracking generally westward over the West Philippine Sea towards Vietnam. On the track forecast, it will exit the Philippine Area of Responsibility tonight. It is still forecast to slightly weaken or maintain its strength in the near term as it begins to move away from the landmass of Luzon. A period of re-intensification may occur beginning tonight or tomorrow early morning as the typhoon moves 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 11:00 AM today.
