  • ONDOY (17W) has reached Tropical Storm status...now passing north of Camarines Provinces as it moves closer to Polillo Island, Northern Quezon and Southern Aurora...heavy rainbands still affecting the whole of Luzon including Metro Manila.

    *Residents and visitors along Luzon should closely monitor the progress of ONDOY.

    *Kindly refer to your local warnings & bulletins issued by your country's official weather agency. This advisory is intended for additional information purposes only.

    + Forecast Outlook: ONDOY is expected to continue tracking West to WNW for the next 24 hours, passing just north of Polillo Island later this morning making landfall just south of Baler, Aurora later this afternoon or evening. ONDOY shall weaken into a Tropical Depression upon crossing Central Luzon, passing over the provinces of Nueva Ecija, Tarlac and Zambales later tonight until early tomorrow morning. The 2 to 5-day long-range forecast shows the system reorganizing over the South China Sea by tomorrow morning. It shall regain Tropical Storm tomorrow afternoon and exit the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) tomorrow evening. ONDOY shall be moving Westward across the South China Sea, becoming a strong tropical storm (95 kph) and make its final landfall over Central Vietnam, very near Hue City on Wednesday morning, Sep 30. Complete dissipation of ONDOY is forecast on Thursday morning Oct 01 while crossing Laos.

    + Effects: ONDOY's strong circulation is now over the island of Luzon...Thick and heavy rainbands continues to bring light to moderate to sometimes heavy rains w/ winds of up to 85 kph across the provinces of Central, Northern and Southern Luzon including Metro Manila. Improving weather conditions can be expected across the Bicol Region later today. 1-day rainfall accumulations of 50 up to 100 mm can be expected along ONDOY's rainbands...with isolated accumulations of up to 200 mm near the center of ONDOY..or along mountain slopes. People living around the slopes of Mayon Volcano in Albay & of Bulusan Volcano in Sorsogon - especially along the areas where possible MUDFLOWS (LAHAR) FLOWS (mixture of volcanic mud and water) are located must stay alert as moderate to heavy rains associated by this system are likely to affect the area beginning today. Residents in low-lying areas & steep slopes must remain alert & seek evacuation for possible life-threatening flash floods, mudslides & landslides due to the anticipated heavy rains brought about by this system. Precautionary measures must be initiated if necessary. Possible coastal Storm Surge flooding of 1 to 3 feet above normal tide levels...accompanied by large and dangerous battering waves...is possible along the coastal areas of Camarines Provinces, Northern Quezon and Aurora. Very minimal damage is likely on this type of storm surge.

    + Current SW Monsoon Intensity: MODERATE >> Light to moderate southwesterly winds not in excess of 40 kph with occasional widespread rains & thunderstorms can be expected along the following affected areas: MINDORO, MASBATE, WESTERN MINDANAO, PALAWAN AND WESTERN VISAYAS. Possible landslides, mudslides, mudflows (lahars) and life-threatening flash floods are likely to occur along steep mountain/volcanic slopes, river banks, low-lying & flood-prone areas of the affected areas.

    [Important Note: Please keep in mind that the above forecast outlook, effects, current monsoon intensity, & tropical cyclone watch changes every 6 to 12 hrs!]
