'Bagyong Egay' PAGASA weather update July 25, 2023 signal


Typhoon 'Egay' is forecast to move northwestward in the next 12 hours before turning generally west northwestward and cross the Luzon Strait.

On the track forecast, this typhoon is forecast to make landfall or pass very close to Babuyan Islands-northeastern mainland Cagayan area between late evening today and tomorrow afternoon.

Slight northward or southward shift in this segment of the track (but within the forecast confidence cone) may result in a landfall or close approach over northern mainland Cagayan or Batanes.

After passing the Babuyan Islands, 'Egay' will turn northwestward or north northwestward and pass over the waters south of Taiwan.

It is forecast to exit the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) on Thursday morning. Outside the PAR region, 'Egay' will cross the Taiwan Strait and make landfall in the vicinity of Fujian, China on Friday morning.

'Egay' is forecast to continue intensifying and reach super typhoon category within 12 hours, although the window of intensification for this typhoon is closing.

'Bagyong Egay' PAGASA weather update July 25, 2023

A weakening trend may begin as the typhoon passes over the Babuyan Islands due to the potential onset of eyewall replacement cycle and interaction with the rugged terrain of Northern Luzon.

Further weakening is expected outside the PAR region due to increasingly unfavorable environment and the eventual landfall over the landmass of China.


Forecast rainfall are generally higher in elevated or mountainous areas.

The Southwest Monsoon enhanced by 'Egay' will continue to bring occasional to monsoon rains over the western portions of Central Luzon, Southern Luzon, and Visayas in the next three days.

There is a high risk of storm surge which may cause flooding in the low-lying and exposed coastal areas of Batanes, Cagayan including Babuyan Islands, Isabela, and Ilocos Norte. Maximum surge heights may exceed 3.0 m is some of the warning areas.


Under the influence of 'Egay', a Gale Warning is in effect over several coastal waters along the seaboards of Northern Luzon, Southern Luzon, and Visayas and eastern seaboards of Central Luzon and Northeastern Mindanao.

Rough to high or very high seas: Sea travel is risky for most vessels. All mariners are advised to remain in port or seek safe harbor until winds and waves subside.

Rough to very rough seas: Sea travel is risky for small seacrafts. For larger vessels, operating in gale conditions requires experience and properly equipped vessels. Mariners without proper experience or operating ill-equipped vessels are advised to remain in port or seek safe harbor.
