Hazards affecting land

The raising of Tropical Cyclone Wind Signal is unlikely throughout the forecast period.

Today, the Southwest Monsoon may bring light to moderate with at times heavy rains over the northern portion of Palawan including Calamian and Cuyo Islands, Batanes, and Babuyan Islands.

The public and disaster risk reduction and management offices concerned are advised to monitor the Thunderstorm/Rainfall Advisories and Heavy Rainfall Warnings issued by PAGASA Regional Services Divisions and take appropriate measures.

Hazards affecting coastal waters

Gale Warning remains in effect for the seaboards of Batanes and Babuyan Islands. Sea travel is risky due to rough to very rough seas over these areas (2.8 to 4.5 m).

Moderate to rough seas (1.2 to 3.4 m) will be experienced over the seaboards of the rest of Luzon and Visayas due to the Southwest Monsoon and Typhoon Julian.

Those with small seacrafts are advised to take precautionary measures while venturing out to sea.

'Julian' is the country's 10th tropical cyclone for 2020 and 6th for August alone after Tropical Storms Enteng (Jangmi) and Igme (Bavi) and tropical depressions Ferdie, Gener, and Helen.

On average, there are 20 tropical cyclones that could form or enter the PAR each year. Only have of those are projected to make landfall.
