FOR:Tropical Depression Perla
Tropical Cyclone: ALERT


ISSUED AT:11:00 AM, 17 October 2019

TROPICAL DEPRESSION "PERLA" MAINTAINS ITS STRENGTH AS IT CONTINUES TO MOVE WEST-NORTHWARD.

  • No tropical cyclone wind signal is in effect over any part of the country at the moment. However, "PERLA" may bring scattered rains and thunderstorms over Batanes, Cagayan (including Babuyan Islands) and Apayao beginning Saturday or Sunday.
  • Sea travel is risky, especially for small sea vessels, over the northern and western seaboards of Northern Luzon due to potentially rough sea conditions associated with the northeasterly surface windflow.
  • This weather disturbance is less likely to intensify into a Tropical Storm. Furthermore, a landfall or close approach over Extreme Northern Luzon within the forecast period remains likely.
