    TRACK AND INTENSITY OUTLOOK


    'Agaton' is forecast to continue meandering in the vicinity of Samar-Leyte area within the next 12 hours before turning more east southeastward towards the Philippine Sea beginning tonight or tomorrow morning. Considering the continuing erratic nature of its movement, the track forecast of 'Agaton' may likely change in the succeeding bulletins.

    Due to the combined effects of land interaction, increasing vertical wind shear, and the effects of the upper-level outflow of Severe Tropical Storm 'Malakas', this tropical depression is forecast to deteriorate into a remnant low within the next 24 hours. The remnant of 'Agaton' will then continue tracking generally eastward over the Philippine Sea as it becomes assimilated within the circulation of 'Malakas'.

    HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND AREAS


    Heavy Rainfall

    Today: Moderate to heavy with at times intense rains over Eastern Visayas, Bicol Region, the northern and central portions of Cebu including Bantayan and Camotes Islands, Aklan, Capiz, Iloilo, Antique, Guimaras, and the northern and central portions of Negros Provinces. Light to moderate with at times heavy rains over MIMAROPA, Dinagat Islands, Zamboanga del Norte, Quezon, and the rest of Visayas.

    Under these conditions and considering significant antecedent rainfall, scattered to widespread flooding (including flooding) and rain-induced landslides are still expected 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) will be experienced within any of the areas where Wind Signal No. 1 is currently in effect.

    HAZARDS AFFECTING COASTAL WATERS

    In the next 24 hours, rough seas (2.8 to 4.0 m) will prevail over the seaboards of areas where Wind Signal No. 1 is hoisted. These conditions may be risky for most seacrafts. Mariners of small seacrafts are advised to remain in port or take shelter, while those operating larger vessels are advised to take precautionary measures when venturing out to sea and, if possible, avoid navigating in these conditions.

    In the next 24 hours, moderate to rough seas (1.2 to 3.7 m) will also prevail over the remaining seaboards of the country that are not under any wind signal or gale warning, especially over the northern and eastern seaboards of Luzon and the eastern seaboards of Visayas and Mindanao. These conditions may be risky for those using small seacrafts. Mariners are advised to take precautionary measures when venturing out to sea and, if possible, avoid navigating in these conditions.

    TROPICAL CYCLONES

    'Agaton' is the country's first tropical cyclone for 2022, developed into a tropical depression on April 9.

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