NORTHEAST MONSOON (AMIHAN) will bring mostly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated light to heavy scattered rain showers or thunderstorms over EXTREME NORTHERN, NORTHERN & EASTERN LUZON. Wind speed is reaching 35 to 70 kph with significant wave heights of 2.5 to 7.5 meters (Moderate to High) and therefore risky to all sea vessels.
The intensification of AMIHAN winds is due to the existing howler, Typhoon Yutu (ROSITA), which is located ~332 km East of Palanan, Isabela as of 12:40 PM today. For more information about the current Typhoon, please visit this link.
