Egay track


May intensify into super typhoon

Egay may also enhance the Southwest Monsoon, bringing occasional to monsoon rains over the western portions of Central Luzon, Southern Luzon, and Visayas in the next three days, Pagasa said.

Egay and the enhanced Southwest Monsoon may also bring gusty conditions over the following areas not under any Wind Signal, especially in coastal and upland/mountainous areas exposed to winds:

•Today: CALABARZON, MIMAROPA, Visayas, and the northern portions of Zamboanga Peninsula, Northern Mindanao, and Caraga.

•Tomorrow: Luzon, Visayas, Zamboanga Peninsula, Basilan, Sulu, Tawi-Tawi, and the northern portion of Northern Mindanao and Dinagat Islands.

•Wednesday: Luzon and Visayas.

Egay is forecast to continue intensifying and reach super typhoon category by late tomorrow or on early Wednesday. 

However, should the track forecast shift closer to the landmass of Luzon, the typhoon may peak at an intensity just below STY threshold. 

Nevertheless, EGAY is forecast to become a very strong typhoon. A weakening trend may begin by Wednesday afternoon or evening as it enters the cooler waters southwest and west of Taiwan.

The next tropical cyclone bulletin will be issued at 11:00 AM today.
