    "Bagyong Emong' has maximum sustained winds of 55 km/h near the center, gustiness of up to 70 km/h, and central pressure of 1002 hPa. It is moving West northwestward at 40 km/h.

    TROPICAL CYCLONE WIND SIGNALS IN EFFECT

    TCWS No. 1 (30-60 km/h Strong winds prevailing or expected in 36 hours)
    • Batanes
    • the northeastern portion of Cagayan (Santa Ana, Gonzaga) including Babuyan Islands

    TRACK AND INTENSITY OUTLOOK

    The tropical depression is forecast to continue moving generally northwestward until tonight as it approaches the Extreme Northern Luzon-Taiwan area.

    'Bagyong Emong' track

    On the forecast track, the center of the tropical depression may pass close or over the vicinity of Batanes-Babuyan Islands area tonight.

    'Emong' may likely exit the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) tomorrow morning or afternoon while skirting the southern and southwestern coasts of Taiwan.

    It may intensify into a tropical storm in the next 12 hours, although intensification is being deterred by its high movement speed. After passing in the vicinity of Extreme Northern Luzon as a tropical storm, the storm may weaken into a tropical depression due to its interaction with the rugged terrain of southern Taiwan.

    SEVERE WINDS

    Areas where TCWS No. 1 is hoisted will be experiencing strong winds (strong breeze to near gale) during the passage of the tropical depression. However, the projected track and intensity suggests the possibility of hoisting TCWS No. 2 over portions of the localities presently under Signal No. 1.

    HAZARDS AFFECTING COASTAL WATERS

    Under the influence of the approaching tropical depression, rough to very rough seas (2.5 to 5.5 m) will be experienced over the seaboards of areas under TCWS No. 1 and the remaining seaboard of Cagayan.

    Sea travel is risky over these waters, especially for those using small seacrafts. Mariners without the proper experience should immediately seek safe harbor.

    TROPICAL CYCLONES

    'Emong', the fifth tropical cyclone for 2021, developed into Tropical Depression while east of Eastern Samar on Sunday, July 4.

    PAGASA predicts that 1–3 tropical cyclones may enter the PAR this month.

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

    The weather agency declared the onset of the rainy season on Friday, June 5.
