Typhoon Mindulle is approaching the northeastern edge of the Philippine area of responsibility and could invade the country’s jurisdiction on Wednesday, PAGASA said on Tuesday.
In his tropical cyclone warning at 11 p.m., The state weather bureau said the center of Mindulle is 1,420 kilometers east of Extreme Northern Luzon and is slowly moving north-northwest.
In the vicinity of its center there is a maximum continuous wind of 165 kilometers per hour and gusts of up to 205 km / h.
PAGASA also stated that if the typhoon enters PAR on Wednesday, it will likely exit within 24 hours as well.
But it has also been pointed out that it is possible that the typhoon might not invade the PAR at all.
“[C]Given that the typhoon has continued to move north-northwest in the past few hours, there is an increasing possibility that it will not invade the PAR region at all, “the country’s weather bureau said.
If it enters PAR, PAGASA said, the typhoon will be given the local name “Lannie”.
The typhoon is also “unlikely” to affect weather conditions in the Philippines, PAGASA said.
In addition, the typhoon is expected to reach a peak intensity of 175 km / h.
It then gets weaker as it approaches the waters of southern Japan, PAGASA added.
Moderate to rough seas
The typhoon will also affect sea conditions in the country for the next 24 hours.
It will bring moderate to rough seas over the north and east coasts of Luzon.
“These conditions are risky for those using small sea vessels. Seafarers are advised to take precautionary measures when venturing out to sea and, if possible, to avoid navigating in these conditions, ”PAGASA also warned. – Consuelo Marquez / BM, GMA News
