The Philippine Area of Responsibility is in charge of locating any incoming unusual event around the borders of the Philippine. PAGASA weather forecaster Glaiza Escullar mentioned that the LPA was located about 1,700 km east of Mindanao.
“Once it enters the PAR and intensifies into tropical cyclone, it will be named ‘Nona’, the 14th to affect the country this year,” forecaster Glaiza Escullar said.
Calculations stated that the tropical cyclone will have a very small chance on making a landfall but might affect some parts of the eastern area of Visayas and Mindanao.
It is also expected that there will be various weather across the country. Cloudy skies with light or moderate rains with some thunderstorms will be prevailed in the provinces of Sarangani, South Cotabato and Davao Del Sur. Metro Manila and the rest of Luzon will experience mostly cloudy skies, light rains and mild to strong winds. The rest of the country will be experiencing a variation of light to moderate rains with isolated thunderstorms and unclear skies.
Even with the information of this tropical cyclone, the state weather bureau said that there is no need for any warnings. Panic issues will rise if the warning is spread without caution for false information will be spread. However, the state weather bureau also mentioned that is nothing to really worry about for fishermen are even safe to do their daily work with the slight weather change.
