    "Ayon sa ating latest analysis, for the whole week makikita po natin na patuloy na magiging maulan dahil sa habagat, lalo na sa malaking bahagi ng Luzon, sa kanlurang bahagi ng Luzon at Metro Manila," PAGASA weather forecaster Grace Castañeda said on Sunday.

    PAGASA continues to monitor Tropical Storm Nepartak, located outside the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR). It was spotted 2,980 km east northeast of Extreme Northern Luzon. It has maximum sustained winds of 75 km near the center and gustiness of 90 km/h and moving northwestward at 20km/h. Weather bureau said it is unlikely to enter PAR.

    Meanwhile, Typhoon In-fa (formerly Fabian) was last tracked 1070 km north of Extreme Northern Luzon. It has maximum sustained winds of 100 km near the center and gustiness of 140 km/h and moving north northwestward at 10km/h.

    NOTE: PAGASA clarifies about “Super Typhoon” Maria, circulating online, is not true and said there's no other tropical cyclones that are expected to enter the PAR and affect the Philippine landmass within the next 3-5 days.

    To quote,

    There are posts currently circulating online and being shared in various social networking services stating there is a tropical cyclone named “MARIA” will be hitting the country as a “Super Typhoon”. To prevent unwanted panic on the part of the public, we would like to make the following clarifications.


    Based from all available data, apart from Typhoon “IN-FA” and Tropical Storm “NEPARTAK” outside the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) there are no other tropical cyclones that are expected to enter the PAR and affect the Philippine landmass within the next 3-5 days.
