+ Forecast Outlook: CONSON (BASYANG) is expected to pass about 100 km. north of Naga City around 3-4 PM...and about 50 km. north of Daet, Camarines Norte around 5-6 PM today. The eye shall be in the vicinity of Polillo Island around 8-9 PM tonight [8PM JUL 13: 14.7N 122.0E]. CONSON shall make landfall near Infanta, Quezon around 10 PM tonight and cross Central luzon. It shall be in the vicinity of Bulacan early tomorrow morning @ 2 AM or about 50 km. North of Quezon City. It will then move out into the South China Sea or off the coast of Zambales tomorrow morning [8 AM JUL 14: 15.3N 120.0E]. The 3 to 5-Day Long-Range Forecast shows the system downgraded into a Tropical Storm as it turns more to the NW to NNW by Thursday across the South China Sea and shall make its final landfall early Saturday morning along Southern China or just west of Macau [8AM JUL 17: 22.4N 112.2E]. *Alternate Forecast Scenario (AFS): There is a possibility that CONSON will continue tracking Westward and pass less than 50 km. to the north of Naga this afternoon, and traverse the northern tip of Camarines Norte by sunset today -- if the strong, steering High Pressure Ridge which extends east of Taiwan will not weaken. Please be reminded that the Forecast Outlook changes every 6 hours, so a turn to the left or right of its future track and other possibilities must be considered.
+ Effects & Hazards: CONSON's (BASYANG) outer rain bands now covering the whole of Southern Luzon and portions of Central Luzon including Metro Manila, while its Inner rain bands now spreading across the Bicol Region, where strong winds of up to 80 kph can be expected.
