PAGASA reported light to moderate rains with some isolated heavy rain showers over Isabela, Cagayan particularly on the eastern section, Aurora, Northern Quezon, Metro Manila, and most of Central Luzon due to the Tropical Depression Ramon Remnant Low-Pressure Area (LPA) and Severe Tropical Storm Sarah trough.
Tropical Storm Sarah has strengthened into a Severe Tropical Storm, and the Tropical Cyclone Wind Signal (TCWS) has now been issued over Cagayan.
Tasty conditions, however, will prevail over the northern and western parts of Northern Luzon, especially in the coastal and mountainous areas due to the Northeast Monsoon surge.
Around 4 a.m. The core of the Severe Tropical Storm Sarah was located on Thursday around 425 kilometers north-east of Aparri, Cagayan or 340 km east of Basco, Batanes with a peak sustained wind of 95 km / h near the center and rainfall of up to 115 km / h and moving north-west at 25 km / h.
Meanwhile, Tropical Depression Ramon’s Low-Pressure Area (LPA) was centered at 110 km west of Subic, Zambales.
Due to the current or expected rough sea conditions caused by Sarah and the Northeast Monsoon, sea travel is risky, especially for small sea crafts, over the seaboards of areas under TCWS, Northern and Central Luzon seaboards, and Southern Luzon’s western seaboard.
Tomorrow or Saturday, Sarah is predicted to slowly decline. Exiting the Philippine Responsibility Zone is also expected.
