NORTHEASTERLIES (Northeasterly Surface Windflow/Weak Amihan) bringing clear to mostly cloudy (overcast) skies, gentle to moderate breeze with some drizzles or isolated rain showers and possible thunderstorms across AURORA, NORTHERN QUEZON, BICOL REGION, EASTERN VISAYAS, AND NORTHEASTERN MINDANAO.
Meanwhile, Typhoon (TY) WUTIP (02W) continues losing strength as it remains almost stationary during the past 06 to 12 hours, carrying 1-min. sustained winds of just 165 km/hr near the center. 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 2 to 3 days, and could enter the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) on Thursday evening, February 28. However, since WUTIP will be encountering unfavorable conditions along its path, a rapid weakening/dissipation of the typhoon is expected. Therefore, there is no threat to the Philippine Islands.
**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.
