TROPICAL DEPRESSION 11W has intensified into a TROPICAL STORM and was named locally as “GORIO,” and was last seen near 652 km E of CASIGURAN, AURORA while another TROPICAL DISTURBANCE tagged as 92W started to develop over the West Philippine Sea just today. It has no direct effect to any parts of the country but the surge of the SOUTHWEST MONSOON (HABAGAT) intensifies, 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.
