TROPICAL CYCLONE WIND SIGNALS (TCWS) IN EFFECT

No Wind Signal hoisted at this time.

Outside the PAR region, Ineng will continue in its northeastward or north northeastward movement towards the waters south of mainland Japan.

HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND AREAS

Tropical Depression Ineng is not directly affecting the country, although it is slightly enhancing the Southwest Monsoon (alongside Tropical Storm Haiku, which enhances it more).

The enhanced monsoon will bring occasional to monsoon rains over the western portions of Luzon in the next three days.

HAZARDS AFFECTING COASTAL WATERS

Ineng is less likely to bring rough sea conditions over any seaboard of the country through the forecast period. However, due to the Southwest Monsoon that it is slightly enhancing, a Gale Warning is in effect for the seaboards of Northern Luzon, the western seaboard of Central Luzon, the western and southern seaboards of Southern Luzon, and the western seaboard of Visayas.

TROPICAL CYCLONES

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.
