    It is forecast to re-intensify and reach severe tropical storm category today. Furthermore, the storm may reach typhoon category tomorrow.

    HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND AREAS

    Heavy Rainfall

    In the next 24 hours, light to moderate with at times heavy rains may be experienced over Zambales, Bataan, and Pangasinan.

    Under these conditions, isolated to widely scattered flooding (including flash floods) and rain-induced landslides are still possible especially in areas that are highly or very highly susceptible to these hazard as identified in hazard maps.

    Severe Winds

    Strong winds (strong breeze to near gale conditions) with occasional gusts will continue within any of the areas where TCWS No. 1 is in effect. This may result to up to very light damage to structures and vegetation.

    All wind signals presently hoisted will likely be lifted within the day.

    HAZARDS AFFECTING COASTAL WATERS

    In the next 24 hours, Tropical Storm 'Jolina' will bring moderate to rough seas (1.5 to 4.0 m) over the western seaboard of Luzon. Sea travel is risky for small seacrafts over these waters. Mariners without the proper experience should immediately seek safe harbor.

    TROPICAL CYCLONES

    'Jolina', the 10th tropical cyclone for 2021, developed into Tropical Depression on Monday, September 6.

    PAGASA predicts that 2–3 tropical cyclones may enter/develop in 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.
