Tropical Cyclone “Surigae” is forecast to intensify into a typhoon on Friday and will possibly bring weather disturbance to parts of the Philippines.
The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) said on Friday that Surigae will be assigned the “Bising” once it enters the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR).
PAGASA forecasts the weather disturbance possibly affecting the eastern portions of Southern Luzon and Visayas once it enters PAR.
“Considering the uncertainty in the track forecast of this tropical cyclone, a westward shift in the current forecast track may result in potentially significant impacts over the aforementioned areas over the weekend (April 17 to 18 April) and onto Monday (April 19),” PAGASA said.“The public and the disaster risk reduction and management council concerned are advised to monitor for the next update on this weather disturbance,” the agency added.
