Just as typhoon "Butchoy" exits the Philippines, the national weather bureau says another storm is expected to enter the Philippine area of responsibility by Wednesday.
PAGASA forecaster Manny Mendoza said the storm with international name "Talim" is still outside PAR over the West Philippine Sea but is expected to enter the country by Wednesday afternoon. Once it does, the storm will have the local name, "Carina."
Mendoza said storm "Talim" has maximum sustained winds of 65 kilometers per hour and is heading east northeast. It will likely not make landfall and is expected to head to Taiwan. However, like "Butchoy," the new storm is expected to enhance the southwest monsoon and bring rains to parts of Northern Luzon.
Mendoza said it is possible that storm signals would be raised over the Batanes Group of Islands once the storm passes near the area.
"The storm itself will have no effect on the Philippines, but it will pull in rains from the southwest monsoon," Mendoza said in a phone interview.
"Butchoy" for its part is expected to exit PAR by early Monday evening.
