PAGASA Says Typhoon Goring to Bring Rains Over Parts of PH
PAGASA LATEST UPDATE – The state weather bureau reported that Goring weakens into a typhoon but may become a super typhoon again.
On Monday (August 28, 2023), the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration released the latest weather update. Typhoon Goring will affect the country’s weather conditions.
PAGASA reported that Super Typhoon Goring has weakened into a typhoon. It was last spotted at 210 km east of Casiguran, Aurora. Strong to typhoon-force winds are extending outwards up to 280 kilometers.
Goring has maximum sustained winds of 175 kilometers per hour and up to 215 kph gustiness. It will bring occasional or monsoon rains over the western portions of Central Luzon, Southern Luzon, and Visayas within the next three days.
The typhoon is expected to leave the Philippine Area of Responsibility on Thursday morning or afternoon (August 31, 2023).
The weather disturbance has weakened into a typhoon but may intensify again to a super typhoon on Tuesday (August 29, 2023).
“GORING is forecast to slightly weaken further in the next 12 hours due to upwelling of cooler ocean waters and the onset of dry air intrusion before re-intensifying as it turns northwestward. It may be upgraded again to super typhoon category by mid tomorrow,” PAGASA said.
The weather agency has raised Tropical Cyclone Wind Signal No. 1 in the following areas:
- Babuyan Islands
