TYPHOON UPDATE: Jolina enters Philippines

2 LPAs to bring rain

As of early morning Monday, September 6, The low pressure area (LPA) spotted off Eastern Samar has developed into a tropical depression named Jolina.

Jolina is the Philippines’ 10th tropical cyclone for 2021 and the first for September.

The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) said in a briefing past 6 am that Jolina was located 300 kilometers east southeast of Guiuan, Eastern Samar, or 310 kilometers east of Surigao City, Surigao del Norte.

The tropical depression is moving west southwest at 20 kilometers per hour (km/h).

It has maximum sustained winds of 45 km/h and gustiness of up to 55 km/h.

The entire country will experience cloudy skies with scattered rainshowers and thunderstorms as two low-pressure areas have entered Philippine territory, the state weather bureau said.

In its weather bulletin issued at 4 p.m. yesterday, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) said one of the weather systems was spotted at 190 kilometers west southwest of Basco, Batanes and the other at 465 km east of Guiuan, Eastern Samar.

TYPHOON UPDATE: ISANG NOT EXPECTED TO MAKE LANDFALL

PAGASA: May possibly weaken into a low-pressure area (LPA) by Monday or even earlier

A tropical depression (TD) outside the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) has entered and was given the local name “Isang”.

“Currently, it does not have a direct effect on any part of the country, as well as on the seaboards,” Chris Perez of the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) said Thursday noon.

“Isang” was last tracked 1,410 kilometers east of northern Luzon, moving northwestward at 25 km. per hour (kph). It packs maximum sustained winds of 45 kph near the center and gustiness of up to 55 kph.

“Isang” is not expected to make landfall, and may possibly weaken into a low-pressure area (LPA) by Monday or even earlier, Perez said.

It is forecast to remain as a TD until Sunday, and may likely exit PAR by Monday.

“We are not expecting this to directly hit any part of the country. The hoisting of a tropical cyclone wind signal is also unlikely,” Perez said.

PAGASA earlier said fair weather and isolated rains will prevail over the entire archipelago. (PNA)
