All cyclone signals now lifted; “Tisoy” forecast to exit PAR between tonight, tomorrow morning

(Eagle News) — All cyclone signals are now lifted as Severe Tropical Storm “Tisoy” slightly weakened and moved over the West Philippine Sea.

The Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services said as of 10 a.m., the center of “Tisoy” was estimated 290 km west southwest of Subic, Zambales, packing maximum sustained winds of up to 95 kph near the center and gustiness of up to 115 kph.

“Tisoy” is moving west northwest at 15 kph, and is expected to continuously weaken due to the northeast monsoon.

It is expected to exit the Philippine Area of Responsibility between tonight and tomorrow morning.

Moderate with occasional heavy rains, however, are expected over Ilocos Region, Cagayan Valley, Cordillera Administrative Region, and Aurora.

Sea travel is also risky, especially for small seacraft, over the seaboards of Northern Luzon, eastern seaboard of Central Luzon, and the eastern and western seaboards of Southern Luzon due to rough sea conditions.

Gusty conditions associated with the northeast nonsoon may also be experienced in other areas of Northern Luzon, Central Luzon, CALABARZON and MIMAROPA, especially in the coastal and mountainous areas.
