In its 11 pm bulletin on Saturday, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) explained that atmospheric and oceanic conditions would be “favorable” for the tropical storm in the next three days.
Egay maintained its strength late Saturday, with maximum sustained winds of 75 kilometers per hour and gustiness of up to 90 km/h.
But it is projected to intensify into a severe tropical storm and subsequently into a typhoon on Sunday, July 23.
