    TRACK AND INTENSITY OUTLOOK


    Today through tomorrow afternoon, 'Agaton' is forecast to slowly loop in the vicinity of northeastern portion of Leyte and the southern portions of Samar and Eastern Samar before emerging over the Philippine Sea by tomorrow evening as another tropical cyclone with international name 'Malakas' begins to interact with it.

    'Bagyong Agaton' PAGASA track April 11, 2022

    'Malakas' is forecast to weaken into a tropical depression due to the frictional effects of land on its circulation. Any significant intensification will likely be inhibited by the binary interaction of 'Agaton' and 'Malakas'. Further weakening into a remnant low is likely by Wednesday evening as 'Agaton' 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, Masbate, Sorsogon, Catanduanes, and the northern and central portions of Cebu including Bantayan and Camotes Islands. Light to moderate with at times heavy rains over Dinagat Islands, Oriental Mindoro, Marinduque, Romblon, and the rest of Bicol Region and Visayas.

    Tomorrow: Moderate to heavy with at times intense rains over Sorsogon, Masbate, Eastern Visayas. Light to moderate with at times heavy rains Dinagat Islands, Romblon, and the rest of Visayas.

    Under these conditions and considering significant antecedent rainfall, scattered to widespread flooding (including flooding) and rain-induced landslides are expected especially in areas that are highly or very highly susceptible to these hazard as identified in hazard maps.

    Severe Winds

    Winds may reach gale-force in strength in any of the areas where Wind Signal No. 2 is hoisted throughout the passage of Tropical Storm 'Agaton'.

    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 to very rough seas (2.8 to 4.5 m) will prevail over the seaboards of areas where Wind Signals No. 2 and 1 are 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 3.4 m) will also prevail over the remaining seaboards of the country that are not under any wind signal or gale warning. 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.
