The disturbance is forecast to slightly weaken prior to its landfall over China. Rapid weakening is expected once 'Egay' makes landfall over mainland China and moves further inland.


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

The enhanced Southwest Monsoon will continue to bring gusty conditions over the following areas not under any Wind Signal, especially in coastal and upland/mountainous areas exposed to winds:
  • Today: Luzon and Western Visayas
  • Tomorrow: Batanes, Ilocos Region, Zambales, Bataan, Cavite, the southern portion of Quezon, MIMAROPA, Bicol Region, and Western Visayas
  • Saturday: Zambales, Bataan, Cavite, Romblon, the northwestern portion of Antique, and Kalayaan Islands.

There is a moderate to high risk of storm surge which may cause flooding in the low-lying and exposed coastal areas of Batanes, the northwestern portion of Cagayan including Babuyan Islands, Ilocos Norte, and extreme northern portion of Ilocos Sur. Maximum surge heights may reach 3.0 m some of the warning areas.


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 the eastern and western seaboards of Visayas.

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.


'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.
