MANILA - The weather bureau is closely monitoring a typhoon (international codename: Danas) that is inching toward the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) off Northern Luzon.

“At 4 a.m. today, the eye of typhoon Danas was located based on all available data at 1,460 kilometers east of extreme Northern Luzon (20.5ºN, 137.8ºE) with maximum sustained winds of 120 kilometers per hour near the center and gustiness of up to 150 kph. It is forecast to move west northwest at 30 kph,” the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa)  said in its 5 a.m. bulletin.

It said that if the typhoon enters PAR, which is expected either in the afternoon or evening today, it will be locally named “Ramil.”

At the same time, Pagasa said an inter-tropical convergence zone (ITCZ) is affecting Palawan, Visayas, and Mindanao. 

The weather system will bring cloudy skies with light to moderate rainshowers and thunderstorms in Palawan, Visayas, and Mindanao.

“Metro Manila and the rest of the country will be partly cloudy to cloudy with isolated rainshowers or thunderstorms mostly in the afternoon and evening,” Pagasa said.
