What to expect?

Strong winds: No locality is currently under the Tropical Cyclone Wind Signal No. 1 (TCWS) No. 1. However, in the anticipation of the arrival of strong to near-gale conditions due to 'Rolly', TCWS #1 may be raised over several provinces in the Bicol Region as early as this evening.

Given that it is likely for this typhoon to continue intensifying prior to landfall, the highest possible TCWS that will be raaised throughout the passage of this typhoon will be TCWS No. 3 or No. 4 (associated with destructive typhoon-force winds).
