'Gardo' is forecast to weaken and become a remnant low-pressure area (LPA) by Wednesday night or Thursday morning as the super typhoon begins to assimilate its circulation.

The merging of two weather disturbances may enhance the southwest monsoon that will trigger heavy rains over Luzon this week.

No tropical cyclone wind signals have been raised in any part of the country due to 'Gardo'. But for 'Henry', PAGASA warned of possible raising of Signal No. 3 by Wednesday evening or Thursday morning as it moves closer to extreme northern Luzon.

The weather central added that 'Henry' is unlikely to make landfall.

Meanwhile, the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC) and the Philippine Red Cross (PRC) said they are now preparing for the possible effects of Tropical Depression Gardo and Typhoon 'Henry'.


'Henry' is the Philippines’ eighth tropical cyclone for 2022.

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.
