WeatherPhilippines Daily Graphical Satellite Analysis from 4pm July 18 until 4pm July 19, 2019

TROPICAL STORM DANAS (FALCON) and TROPICAL DISTURBANCE (LPA) 91W will bring mostly cloudy to cloudy (overcast) skies with scattered to widespread light to moderate to at times heavy rain showers and thunderstorms across BATANES AND BABUYAN GROUP OF ISLANDS, AND ILOCOS NORTE.

At 2:00 PM (0600 GMT) today, the center of TS DANAS (FALCON) was already located outside of PAR, about 628 km NNE of Basco, Batanes (25.7°N 124.2°E), with maximum sustained winds of 75 kph, gusting up to 95 kph. It was moving North @ 33 kph towards East China Sea. Meanwhile, over the western part of Bashi Channel, LPA 91W was located about 276 km West of Basco, Batanes (20.9°N 119.4°E) and is currently quasi-stationary. The potential of becoming a Tropical Cyclone within the next 12 to 24 hours is HIGH (>65% chance).

Enhanced SOUTHWEST MONSOON (HABAGAT) will continue to bring mostly cloudy to cloudy (overcast) skies with scattered to occasional light to moderate to at times heavy rain showers and thunderstorms across THE WHOLE OF LUZON, MIMAROPA, SCARBOROUGH (PANATAG) SHOAL, AND KALAYAAN ISLAND GROUP (KIG). Winds of fresh breeze to gale-force winds of 35 to 65 km/hr will be expected along these areas, making the seas moderate to very rough (2.0 to 7.5 meters) and dangerous to all types of sea vessels.

THE REST OF THE COUNTRY will be clear to mostly cloudy skies with possible isolated rain showers and thunderstorms in some areas especially in the afternoon or evening.

**Residents are advised to be on alert for possible flashfloods, landslides or lightning strikes during the occurrence of Severe Thunderstorms.
