Cruz also explained that the weather condition has no serious effect to the Philippines, but it will intensify the impending southwest Monsoon. “It has no direct effect on the country but it will enhance the prevailing Habagat,” said by Cruz quoted by GMA.
JMA’s forecast signifies that the tropical cyclone could enhance further as it goes near China.
