• This tropical cyclone is also forecast to enhance the Southwest Monsoon which may bring rains over the western section of Luzon beginning tomorrow. As such, the issuance of Weather Advisory for Southwest Monsoon is likely.
Strong winds (strong breeze to near gale strength) will be experienced within any of the areas where Wind Signal no. 1 is currently in effect. The potential for hoisting a Wind Signal No. 2 is also not ruled out.
HAZARDS AFFECTING COASTAL WATERS
• Under the influence of Super Typhoon HENRY, a Gale Warning is in effect for the northern and eastern seaboards of Northern Luzon. For more information, refer to Gale Warning #3 issued at 5:00 AM today.
• In the next 24 hours, HENRY may bring moderate to rough seas over the eastern seaboards of Central Luzon and Southern Luzon (1.2 to 3.0 m). These conditions may be risky for those using small seacrafts. Mariners are advised to take precautionary measures when venturing out to sea and, if possible, avoid navigating in these conditions.
TRACK AND INTENSITY OUTLOOK
• Typhoon HENRY is forecast to remain almost stationary this morning before tracking slowly northwestward later in the afternoon. On the forecast track, HENRY will eventually accelerate northward tomorrow and exit the Philippine Area of Responsibility on tomorrow evening or Sunday morning.
• This typhoon is forecast to weaken while in its quasi-stationary phase. A short period of intensification may also take place outside the PAR region by Sunday as HENRY tracks northward over the East China Sea.
Considering these developments, the public and disaster risk reduction and management offices concerned are advised to take all necessary measures to protect life and property. Persons living in areas identified to be highly or very highly susceptible to these hazards are advised to follow evacuation and other instructions from local officials.
