No major weather system is expected to affect the Philippines within the next 24 hours. Hence, THE REST OF THE COUNTRY will be clear with partly cloudy skies, cooler nights, and isolated rain showers in some areas.
Meanwhile, Super Typhoon (TY) WUTIP (02W) has been downgraded into a Typhoon as it moves very slowly, northwestward @ 05-07 kph during the past 06 hours, carrying 1-min. sustained winds of 215 km/hr. The latest Global Typhoon Numerical Models continues to show, a slow, northwest to west-northwestward track towards the eastern part of the Philippine Sea for the next 3 to 4 days, and could enter the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) on Thursday, February 28. However, since WUTIP will be encountering unfavorable conditions along its path, a rapid weakening/decaying phase of the typhoon is likely, therefore, the threat to the Philippine Islands remains low to none.
**Residents are advised to be on alert for possible flashfloods, landslides or lightning strikes during the occurrence of Severe Thunderstorms.
Important note: In the infrared (IR) satellite image shown above: BLUE areas indicate Clear Skies with a Few Clouds; GREEN = Partly to Mostly Cloudy Skies; YELLOW = Mostly Cloudy to Hazy Skies with Possible Slight-to-Moderate Rainfall; and RED = Thunderstorms with Moderate to Heavy to sometimes Extreme Rainfall.
