(Updated 12:30 p.m.) Tropical Storm Paeng is expected to bring intense rainfall of 7.5 to 30 mm per hour in areas within its 500 km diameter as it intensified on Saturday, but it is too far to affect any part of the country for now, state weather agency PAGASA said in its weather update on Saturday morning.
Paeng’s maximum sustained winds increased to 95 kph near the center and gustiness of up to 120 kph.
It is predicted to move from its current position at 1,100 East of Legazpi City to West Northwest at 13 kph.
It will, however, enhance northeasterly winds over the eastern seaboard of Central and Southern Luzon and of the Visayas.
A gale warning was issued earlier on Saturday along the eastern seaboard of Central and Southern Luzon and Visayas due to rough to very rough seas.
Meanwhile, municipalities around restive Mayon were given a special weather update, warning them of possible ash fall occurrence.
Camalig, Guinobatan, Ligao, and Oas will experience wind speeds of 46 to 47 kph coming from east to northeast, along with light to moderate rain showers and thunderstorms.
Light to moderate with occasionally heavy rains will affect portions of Laguna, Quezon, and Batangas for the next one to two hours.
