PAGASA: Tropical depression to graze over northeast PHL

July 16, 2012 8:59pm
A tropical depression will enter the Philippine area of responsibility (PAR) at 10 p.m. Monday, forecasters from the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) said Monday evening.
 
“Papasok na siya, siguro mamaya nasa loob na siya ng PAR pero aalis na mamayang madaling araw,” said PAGASA forecaster Buddy Javier.
 
The tropical depression will be called “Enteng” (International code, Khanum), according to PAGASA.
 
Javier said the tropical depression will not have any major impact on Philippine weather in general.
 
“Sandali lang ‘to. Dadaplis lang sa northeast corner ng PAR natin. Wala namang maapektuhan ‘tong area,” he said.
 
However, he noted that a southwest monsoon or habagat will bring rain over the western section of northern and central Luzon in the next few days. — VS, GMA News
