PAGASA Says Typhoon Jenny to Affect PH Weather Condition
PAGASA LATEST UPDATE – The state weather bureau reported that typhoon Jenny will bring rain over some parts of the country.
On Monday (October 2, 2023), the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration released the latest weather update in the country. Typhoon Jenny will affect the country’s weather conditions.
PAGASA reported that Jenny was spotted 675 kilometers (km) east of Aparri, Cagayan. It has maximum sustained winds of 120 kilometers per hour and gustiness of up to 150 kph.
“Mamayang hapon ay inaasahan natin na nasa 580 km silangan na ng Calayan, Cagayan [ang sentro ng mata ng bagyo], habang bukas ay nasa 240 km silangan ng Basco, Batanes, at 330 km silangan ng Ibtayat, Batanes hapon ng Martes,” said Pagasa weather specialist Obet Badrina.
Jenny enhances the southwest monsoon, which will bring occasional to monsoon rains over western portions of Central Luzon, Southern Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao within the next three days.
The typhoon is unlikely to hit the landmass of Batanes unless it moves southward. “Ang nakikita natin sa araw ng Huwebes ay tatama ang mata ng bagyong si Jenny sa southern part ng Taiwan,” he added.
The weather agency raised Tropical Cyclone Wind Signal No. 1 over Batanes, Babuyan Islands, the eastern portion of mainland Cagayan.
The weather disturbance is expected to leave the Philippine area of responsibility by Friday (October 6, 2023).
Habagat will bring cloudy weather conditions with scattered rain showers and thunderstorms over Visayas, Zamboanga Peninsula, and Mimaropa.
Typhoon Jenny’s trough will bring partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rain showers or thunderstorms over Metro Manila and the rest of the country.
Possible flash floods or landslides are expected in these areas during severe thunderstorms, according to PAGASA.
