Hazards affecting land areas

Rainfall: Today, 'Quinta' will bring moderate to heavy with at times intense rains over Camarines Norte, Camarines Sur, CALABARZON, Occidental Mindoro, Oriental Mindoro, Marinduque, Romblon, northern Palawan including Calamian and Cuyo Islands, Aklan, Capiz, and Antique.

The tail-end of a frontal system will likewise bring moderate to heavy rains over Cagayan, Isabela, Apayao, Kalinga, Abra, Ilocos Norte, and Ilocos Sur.

These two weather systems will also bring light to moderate with at times heavy rains over Metro Manila, Zamboanga Peninsula, Bangsamoro, Northern Mindanao, Caraga, and the rest of Luzon and Visayas.

Flooding (including flash floods), rain-induced landslides, and sediment-laden streamflows (i.e. lahars) may occur during heavy or prolonged rainfall especially in areas that are highly or very highly susceptible to these hazards.

Strong winds: Destructive typhoon-force winds will be experienced in areas under Tropical Cyclone Wind Signal (TCWS) #3, damaging gale to storm-force winds in areas under TCWS #2, and strong breeze to near gale conditions in areas under TCWS #1.

In other areas, strong breeze to gale conditions due to the northeasterly surge will also prevail over Ilocos Region, Batanes, Cagayan, Apayao, and northern Zambales.

Storm surge: A storm surge of 2.0 to 3.0 m may be experienced over the coastal areas of Camarines Norte, and the northern coastal areas of Quezon including Polillo Islands and Camarines Sur and 1.0 to 2.0 m over the coastal areas of Batangas, Marinduque, Occidental Mindoro, Oriental Mindoro, Romblon, Masbate, Albay, Sorsogon, Catanduanes, and the remaining coastal areas of Quezon and Camarines Sur.

Hazards affecting coastal waters

Today, rough to high seas (2.5 to 7.0 m) will be experienced over the seaboards of areas under TCWS. Rough to very rough seas (2.5 to 5.0 m) will also prevail over the remaining seaboards of Luzon and the western, northern, and eastern seaboards of Visayas. Sea travel is risky for all types of sea vessels over these waters.

Moderate to rough seas (1.2 to 3.1 m) will be experienced over the other seaboards of the country today. Mariners of small seacrafts are advised to take precautionary measures when venturing out to sea. Inexperienced mariners should avoid navigating in these conditions.

'Quinta' is the country's 17th tropical cyclone for 2020.

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.

PAGASA declared the onset of rainy season on June 12.
