MANILA, Philippines - Typhoon Nina has maintained its strength as it slowed down, while hovering off Northern Luzon, as it may stay in the country until Sunday, the state weather bureau said.

Gener Quitlong, Pagasa forecaster told InterAksyon.com the storm may exit the country on Sunday and has a high probability of not making landfall. On the other hand, News 5's Metra Weather System forecast the storm will remain in the country until Monday.

Quitlong said the next 24 hours will be crucial as it will determine whether or not Nina will be closer to land or not. Due to The prevailing northeast monsoon or amihan has shielded the country from the incoming storm. A high pressure area off Northern Luzon also acts as an anti-cyclone, deterring Nina.

"Metro Manila, Central Luzon, Bicol Region, Calabarzon, Western Visayas, Zamboanga Peninsula, Northern Mindanao, and Caraga will have occasional light to moderate rains or thunderstorms. The rest of the country will be partly cloudy with brief rainshowers or thunderstorms," Pagasa's forecast read.
