HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND AREAS
• This evening: Heavy to intense with at times torrential rains likely over Metro Manila, Bataan, Zambales, CALABARZON, Marinduque, Mindoro Provinces, and the northern portion of Palawan including Calamian and Cuyo Islands. Moderate to heavy with at times intense rains likely over Camarines Provinces, Isabela, Aurora, the rest of MIMAROPA, Ilocos Region, and Cordillera Administrative Region.

• Under these conditions, widespread flooding and rain-induced landslides are expected, especially in areas that are highly or very highly susceptible to these hazard as identified in hazard maps and in localities with significant antecedent rainfall.
• Winds of at most storm-force strength may occur within any of the areas where Wind Signal No. 3 is hoisted, while winds reaching gale-force strength are possible within any of the areas where Wind Signal No. 2 is in effect. Areas under Wind Signal No.1 may experience strong winds (strong breeze to near gale strength) throughout the passage of the tropical cyclone.
• The surge of the Northeast Monsoon enhanced by PAENG will also bring strong winds with gusts reaching gale-force strength over Batanes, Babuyan Islands, Ilocos Norte, the northern and eastern portions of mainland Cagayan, and the northern portion of Apayao.
There is minimal to moderate risk of storm surge of up to 2.0 m in height which may cause inundation or flooding in the low-lying and exposed coastal areas of eastern portion of Quezon, Cavite, Pampanga, Bulacan, Metro Manila, and Bataan. For more information refer to Storm Surge Warning #7 issued at 8:00 PM today.
HAZARDS AFFECTING COASTAL WATERS
Under the influence of the surge of the Northeast Monsoon and Severe Tropical Storm PAENG, a marine gale warning remains in effect over the seaboards of Luzon and Visayas and the eastern seaboard of Mindanao. For more information, refer to Gale Warning #13 issued at 5:00 PM today.
TRACK AND INTENSITY OUTLOOK
• Severe Tropical Storm PAENG is forecast to track west northwestward through tomorrow morning. On the forecast track, the center of PAENG will traverse the Cavite area, then will cross the southern portion of Bataan.
• PAENG may maintain its strength while traversing the Luzon landmass and further intensification is likely once it emerges over the West Philippine Sea.
Considering these developments, the public and disaster risk reduction and management offices concerned are advised to take all necessary measures to protect life and property. Persons living in areas identified to be highly or very highly susceptible to these hazards are advised to follow evacuation and other instructions from local officials. For heavy rainfall warnings, thunderstorm/rainfall advisories, and other severe weather information specific to your area, please monitor products issued by your local PAGASA Regional Services Division.
