TROPICAL STORM “GORIO,” continues to move slowly towards the North, and was last seen near 604 km ENE of CASIGURAN, AURORA while TROPICAL DISTURBANCE 92W starts to move slowly Northeast towards the Taiwan Strait. Both GORIO and 92W now have a direct interaction with one another which means the surge of the SOUTHWEST MONSOON (HABAGAT) intensifies further, bringing blustery conditions over the KALAYAAN ISLAND GROUP and the WESTERN seaboards of LUZON. The seas will become moderate to rough at times which may pose danger to small to medium-size sea crafts.
The REST OF THE PHILIPPINES will have some cloud cover and the possibility of isolated rain showers or thunderstorms developing later.
**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.
