'Bagyong Egay' PAGASA weather update July 26, 2023


In the next 6 hours, 'Egay' may exhibit trochoidal or wobbling motion while in the vicinity of the Babuyan Islands. As such, a landfall over northwestern Cagayan is not ruled out.

Afterwards, 'Egay' will turn generally northwestward or north northwestward and pass over the waters south and southwest of Taiwan.

It is forecast to exit the Philippine Area of Responsibility tomorrow morning.

Outside the PAR region, 'Egay' will cross the Taiwan Strait and make landfall in the vicinity of Fujian, China on Friday morning.

'Bagyong Egay' PAGASA weather update July 26, 2023 track

'Egay' is forecast to weaken throughout the forecast period, although the rate of weakening will not be rapid due to slightly favorable environment offsetting the impact of land interaction with the rugged terrain of Northern Luzon and Taiwan.

A more rapid weakening is expected once EGAY makes landfall and moves inland over mainland China, with the tropical cyclone degenerating into a remnant low by Saturday.


Forecast rainfall are generally higher in elevated or mountainous areas. Under these conditions, flooding and rain-induced landslides are highly likely especially in areas that are highly or very highly susceptible to these hazards as identified in hazard maps and in localities that experienced considerable amounts of rainfall for the past several days.

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

Violent, life-threatening conditions are expected to continue over Babuyan Islands, the northwestern portion of mainland Cagayan, and the northern portions of Apayao and Ilocos Norte in the next 6 hours.

Significant to severe impacts from typhoon-force winds may be experienced within the areas under Wind Signal No. 4.


Under the influence of 'Egay' and the enhanced Southwest Monsoon, a Gale Warning is in effect over several coastal waters along the seaboards of Luzon and Visayas.


'Bagyong Egay' is the fifth tropical cyclone for 2023. It originated from an area of low-pressure east of southeastern Luzon that developed into a tropical depression on Friday, July 21.

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.
