Hazards affecting land

No Tropical Cyclone Wind Signal is currently in effect.

Gusty conditions associated with the Southwest Monsoon may be experienced (especially in coastal and mountainous areas) in the next 24 hours over Pangasinan, Benguet, Nueva Vizcaya, Quirino, Central Luzon, Metro Manila, CALABARZON, MIMAROPA, Bicol Region, and Western Visayas.

Today, the Southwest Monsoon enhanced by Enteng and the Low Pressure Area (LPA) west of Zambales will bring monsoon rains over Pangasinan, Benguet, Zambales, Bataan, MIMAROPA, and Antique, and occasional rains over Metro Manila, CALABARZON, Bicol Region, and the rest of Ilocos Region, Cordillera Administrative Region, Central Luzon, and Visayas.

Flooding and rain-induced landslide may occur during heavy or prolonged rainfall especially in areas that are highly or very highly susceptible to these hazards.

Hazards affecting coastal waters

Gale Warning is in effect over the seaboards of Pangasinan, Zambales, Bataan, western coast of Batangas, western coast of Occidental Mindoro including Lubang Island, and western coast of Palawan including Calamian Islands (2.8 to 4.0 m); Batanes, Cagayan including Babuyan Islands, and Isabela (2.8 to 3.4 m). Sea travel is risky over these areas due to rough to very rough seas.

Those with small seacrafts are advised to take precautionary measures while venturing out over the seaboards of Visayas and the rest of Luzon due to moderate to rough seas (1.2 to 2.8 m).

'Enteng' is the country's fifth tropical cyclone for 2020, after Typhoon Ambo (Vongfong) in May, Tropical Storm Butchoy (Nuri) in June, Tropical Depression Carina in July and Tropical Depression 'Dindo' early this month.

On average, there are 20 tropical cyclones that could form or enter the PAR each year.

PAGASA declared the onset of rainy season on June 12.
