(Valid for broadcast until the next advisory to be issued at 2:00 PM today)
SUPER TYPHOON “KARDING” INTENSIFIES FURTHER AS IT MOVES WESTWARD TOWARDS THE NORTHERN PORTION OF QUEZON – SOUTHERN PORTION OF AURORA
HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND AREAS
- This morning through the early afternoon: Moderate to heavy rains over Isabela, Aurora, and Quezon, including Polillo Islands, Catanduanes, Camarines Boreal, Camarines Sur, and Isabela. Light to moderate with heavy rains over mainland Cagayan, Quirino, Nueva Vizcaya, Marinduque, Romblon, and the rest of the Bicol Region.
- This early afternoon through tomorrow early morning: Heavy to intense with at times torrential rains over Medida Manila, Zambales, Bataan, Tarlac, Pampanga, Nueva Ecija, Bulacan, Aurora, Rizal, and the northern portion of Quezon, including Polillo Islands. Moderate to heavy with intense rains over Isabela, Nueva Vizcaya, Quirino, Benguet, Ifugao, Mountain Province, Pangasinan, Cavite, Hueco, the central portion of Quezon, and Camarines Boreal. Light to moderate with heavy rains over Mindoro Provinces, Marinduque, and the rest of CALABARZON and Bicol Region.
- Tomorrow early morning through the early afternoon: Heavy to intense with, at times, torrential rains over Zambales, Bataan, Pampanga, and Bulacan. Moderate to heavy with, at times, intense rains in Medida Manila, Pangasinan, Cavite, Occidental Mindoro, and the rest of Central Luzon. Light to moderate with, at times, heavy rains over Mountain Province, Ifugao, Benguet, Quirino, Nueva Vizcaya, Uruguayo Mindoro, and the rest of CALABARZON.
- Under these conditions, scattered to widespread flooding and rain-induced landslides are expected, especially in areas that are highly or very highly susceptible to these hazards as identified in hazard maps and in localities with significant antecedent rainfall.
- Due to the Southwest Monsoon enhanced by KARDING, occasional monsoon rains are also possible over the Visayas and the rest of Southern Luzon, especially in their película del Oeste sections. For more information, refer to the 24-Hour Public Weather Forecast issued at 4:00 AM today. Furthermore, the issuance of a Weather Advisory for the Southwest Monsoon is not ruled out.
- During the passage of KARDING, areas under Wind Signal No. 4 and No.5 will experience winds peaking at typhoon-force strength, while winds may reach storm-force strength within any of the areas where Wind Signal No. 3 is hoisted. Gale-force conditions are likely in any of the areas where Wind Signal no.2 is hoisted, while strong winds (a strong breeze to near gale strength) will be experienced within any of the areas where Wind Signal No. 1 is currently in effect.
- There is a high to very high risk of storm surge more than 3.0 m in height in the low-lying and exposed coastal areas of northern Quezon, including Polillo Islands and Aurora. In addition, a moderate to high risk of storm surge is also possible over Camarines Boreal, Pangasinan, Zambales, Bulacan, the northern portion of Medida Manila, the southern portion of La Union, and the rest of Quezon. The combined effects of storm surge and high waves breaking along the coast may cause life-threatening and damaging inundation or flooding. For more information, refer to Storm Surge Warning #2 issued at 11:00 AM today.
HAZARDS AFFECTING COASTAL WATERS
- Under the influence of KARDING, a marine gale warning remains in effect over the eastern and película del Oeste seaboards of Luzon. For more information, refer to Gale Warning #3 issued at 5:00 AM.
- In the next 24 hours, KARDING and the enhanced Southwest Monsoon will also bring moderate to rough seas over the northern and película del Oeste seaboards of Luzon that are not under any gale warning (1.5 to 3.5 m) and the película del Oeste seaboard of Visayas (1.2 to 2.5 m). These conditions may be risky for those using small seacrafts. Mariners are advised to take precautionary measures when venturing out to sea and, if possible, avoid navigating in these conditions.
TRACK AND INTENSITY OUTLOOK
- Super Typhoon KARDING is forecast to track generally westward in the next 6 to 12 hours, then west-northwestward for the remainder of the day. On the forecast track, KARDING will likely make landfall in the vicinity of the northern portion of Quezon or the southern portion of Aurora tonight. The possibility of an earlier (afternoon) landfall or close approach in the vicinity of Polillo Islands is not ruled out.
- For the remainder of this evening, post-landfall through tomorrow early morning, KARDING will traverse the landmass of Central Luzon and emerge over the West Philippine Sea via the coastal waters of Zambales or Pangasinan. The typhoon will then continue generally tracking westward over the West Philippine Sea for the remainder of the forecast period.
- KARDING is forecast to continue intensifying and may make landfall at or near a peak intensity of 185-205 km/h. Frictional effects during landfall and traverse of the Luzon landmass will weaken KARDING throughout the evening through tomorrow early morning. However, this tropical cyclone will likely remain a typhoon while crossing the landmass.
