'Bagyong Marilyn' PAGASA weather update September 12, 2019

No tropical cyclone warning signal raised as of press time.

PAGASA expects the weather disturbance to strengthen into a tropical storm by Thursday morning and into a severe tropical storm by Sunday morning.

The tropical depression is less likely to hit land based on forecast track.

Today until tomorrow morning, the trough of Tropical Depression will bring light to moderate rains and intermittent heavy rain showers (during thunderstorms) over most of Luzon (including Metro Manila) and Visayas, Zamboanga Peninsula, Bangsamoro, Northern Mindanao and SOCCSKSARGEN.

Sea travel is risky, especially for small seacrafts, over the central and eastern seaboards of Visayas and the northern, eastern and southern seaboards of Mindanao due to potentially rough sea condition.

Residents of these areas, especially those living in areas identified to be highly or very highly susceptible to floods and rain-induced landslides, are advised to take precautionary measures, coordinate with local disaster risk reduction and management offices, and continue monitoring for updates, especially the Thunderstorm or Rainfall Advisories and Heavy Rainfall Warnings to be issued by PAGASA Regional Services Divisions.
