MANILA, Philippines – While Tropical Storm Paeng (Nalgae) is on its way out of the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR), some areas may still have rain until Monday morning, October 31.
In a bulletin released past 11 pm on Sunday, October 30, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) said Paeng was located 255 kilometers west of Iba, Zambales, over the West Philippine Sea.
The tropical storm’s movement shifted again, from west southwest to east southeast. It slowed down further as well, moving at only 10 kilometers per hour from the previous 20 km/h.
PAGASA said Paeng is likely to head north northwest or northwest from Sunday evening to Wednesday, November 2, before turning west northwest toward the southern part of China.
Its exit from PAR is now expected to happen on Monday afternoon or evening, instead of morning or afternoon.
Paeng continued to have maximum sustained winds of 85 km/h and gustiness of up to 105 km/h on Sunday evening.
It may re-intensify into a severe tropical storm in the next 12 hours, or by Monday morning, and become a typhoon on Tuesday, November 1, when it would already be outside PAR.
Paeng may start weakening late Tuesday, however, due to another surge of the northeast monsoon or hanging amihan.
The following areas may still experience rain from Paeng until Monday morning:
