The latest Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) weather forecast on Sunday, July 22, 2012 indicated that the Southwest Monsoon will bring more rains in Luzon and Visayas.
In its 5 a.m. weather update, PAGASA said that “Luzon and Visayas will have occasional rains becoming frequent over the Western section of Luzon which may trigger flashfloods and landslides. Mindanao will experience partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rainshowers and thunderstorms.”
The weather bureau added in its 24-hour public weather forecast that “Moderate to strong winds blowing from the Southwest will prevail over the entire archipelago with moderate to rough seas.”
At 10 p.m. on Saturday, the PAGASA weather bulletin said that Typhoon Ferdie is already out of the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR).
Typhoon Ferdie was last spotted at 350 kilometers west northwest of Laoag City while moving west northwest at 15 kilometers per hour with maximum sustained winds of 55 kph near the center. It is expected to be at 650 kms west northwest of Laoag City by Sunday evening.
The exit of Ferdie from PAR prompted PAGASA to lower all public storm warnings.
However, all fishing boats and other small vessels are being warned from going out at the western seaboard of Luzon due to the combined effects of tropical depression Ferdie and the southwest monsoon.
