There will be strong winds in these areas from 39 to 61 km/h (Beaufort 6 to 7) but with minimal to minor threat to life and property.

Hazards affecting land areas

Forecast accumulated rainfall of 50-100 mm for the next 24 hours (from this early morning to tomorrow early morning) for Aurora, the northern and western portions of Quezon and the eastern portion of Laguna.

For the next 3 days forecast accumulated rainfall of 50-100 mm for the following areas: Rizal, Laguna, Batangas, the northern and western portions of Quezon, Aurora, and the eastern portions of Nueva Ecija and Bulacan.

PAGASA warned that isolated flashfloods and and rain-induced landslides may occur in these areas, especially in areas that are highly or very highly susceptible to these hazards.

Areas under TCWS No. 1 may experience strong winds (strong breeze to near gale strength) which may cause minimal to minor impacts to life and property.

Hazards affecting coastal waters

Moderate to rough seas may be experienced over the western seaboards of Northern Luzon and the northern and eastern seaboards of Luzon.

"Mariners of small seacrafts are advised to take precautionary measures when venturing out to sea and, if possible, avoid navigating in these conditions."

Track and Intensity outlook

Amang is moving generally northwestward and traverse Camarines Norte and northern Quezon.

PAGASA added that the tropical depression is forecast to weaken into a low pressure area (LPA) on Thursday due to the combined effects of land interaction, dry air intrusion, and increasing vertical wind shear. -- BAP, GMA Integrated News
