Filipinos can expect improved weather conditions this Thursday as the two tropical cyclones inside the country were expected to leave the area of responsibility on Wednesday (Sept. 13).
The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) has lifted all tropical cyclone warnings associated with storm “Maring” (international name “Doksuri”), as it approached the western boundary of the country’s area of responsibility around Wednesday noon.
However, sea travel remains risky over the western seaboards of Central and Southern Luzon.
Maring intensified into a storm over the West Philippine Sea, packing maximum sustained winds of 85 kilometers per hour (kph) and gustiness of up to 105 kph on Wednesday.
It was last spotted 370 kilometers (km) west of Iba, Zambales.
Should it maintain its west-northwest track at 18 kph, Maring will be outside the country’s vicinity by Wednesday afternoon or evening.
PAGASA said Maring will be 565 km north of Pagasa Island by Thursday morning.
As this developed, typhoon “Lannie” (international name “Talim”) was also on its way out of the country’s area of responsibility the same day as Maring. The typhoon is currently moving towards Ryukyu Islands.
Before Wednesday noon, Lannie was at 605 km northeast of Basco, Batanes, with maximum sustained winds of 130 kph and gustiness of up to 160 kph.
It is forecast to move west-northwest at 18 kph.
By Thursday morning, Lannie is expected at 770 km north-northeast of Basco, Batanes.
This Thursday, PAGASA said Oriental Mindoro, Occidental Mindoro, Marinduque, Romblon, Palawan, Zambales, Bataan and Batangas can expect cloudy skies with light to moderate rains and thunderstorms.
It added that Mindanao will have cloudy skies with light to moderate rains and thunderstorms, while Metro Manila and the rest of the country will experience partly cloudy to cloudy skies apart from isolated rain showers.
