LPA develops into Tropical Depression Ineng
The low pressure area east of Extreme Northern Luzon has developed into tropical depression Ineng, Pagasa said in its bulletin early morning on Tuesday, September 5, 2023.
The center of Tropical Depression Ineng, at 4 a.m. Tuesday, was estimated to be at 925 kilometers East of Extreme Northern Luzon, brining maximum sustained winds of 45 km/h near the center, gustiness of up to 55 km/h, and central pressure of 1002 hPa.
The tropical depression is moving northward slowly, the bulletin said.
Strong winds extend outwards up to 150 km from the center.
No tropical cyclone wind signal has been hoisted as of this posting.
The weather bulletin also said that Tropical Depression Ineng is not directly affecting the country, although it is slightly enhancing the Southwest Monsoon.
The enhanced monsoon will bring occasional to monsoon rains over the western portions of Luzon in the next three days.
Tropical Depression Ineng is forecast to remain far from the Philippine landmass. Tracking generally northeastward or north northeastward while gradually intensifying throughout forecast period, it may exit the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) Tuesday night or Wednesday as a tropical storm. Outside the PAR region, INENG will continue in its northeastward or north northeastward movement towards the waters south of mainland Japan.
