SEVERE TROPICAL STORM NESAT “GORIO,” continues to move slowly while intensifying towards the North-Northwest in the general direction of Central Taiwan, and was last seen near 420 km E of BASCO, BATANES while TROPICAL DISTURBANCE 92W starts to move slowly North-northeast towards the Taiwan Strait. Both NESAT 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, EXTREME NORTHERN LUZON, REST of LUZON, MiMaRoPa, BICOL and VISAYAS Regions. The seas will become rough to very rough which may pose danger to medium to large-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.
