Trough of Typhoon Mindulle affecting Bicol Region, Eastern Visayas
MANILA, Philippines – The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) is monitoring the movement of Typhoon Mindulle south of the country.
As of 4:00 AM Monday (September 27), the typhoon remains outside of the Philippine area of responsibility (PAR) but is affecting eastern sections of Southern Luzon specifically Bicol Region, and Eastern Visayas.
PAGASA located the center of the typhoon at 1,600 kilometers east of extreme northern Luzon. It is slightly weakening due to its eyewall replacement cycle.
According to PAGASA weather specialist Ariel Rojas, ‘Mindulle’ is forecast to intensify while still in the Philippine Sea.
It is not expected to directly affect the country though it may enter PAR by Tuesday (September 28) and eventually exit on Wednesday (September 29).
Once inside PAR, it will be named ‘Lani’ being the 12th tropical cyclone to enter the country.
Meanwhile, Metro Manila and the rest of the country may experience isolated rains due to the trough of Typhoon Mindulle and localized thunderstorms which may cause possible flash floods and landslides during severe thunderstorms.
Apart from ‘Mindulle, the weather agency said there is no other weather disturbance being monitored at present.

Expect colder days as PAGASA announces onset of amihan season
MANILA, Philippines—Expect colder days ahead after the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) announced the onset of northeast monsoon or amihan season in the country.
PAGASA also observed gradual cooling of the surface air temperature over the northeastern part of Luzon.
“For the past several days, strong to gale-force northeasterly winds have prevailed over Northern Luzon due to the strengthening of the high-pressure system over Siberia and enhanced by passing of low- pressure areas (LPAs),” according to PAGASA
Surges of cold temperatures may also be expected in the coming months, the state weather bureau added.
Meanwhile, with the on-going La Niña, NE monsoon rainfall may be enhanced and could trigger floods, flash floods, and rain-induced landslides over susceptible areas. PAGASA reminded local government units and the public to take precautionary measures. AAC
