Light to moderate rains will be experienced over Eastern Visayas and the regions of Caraga and Davao. This is due to the effect of the Intertropical Convergence Zone or ITCZ that remains to be the dominant weather system in the country.
Meanwhile, partly cloudy to cloudy skies with a chance of rain showers and/or thunderstorms will prevail over Metro Manila and the rest of the country.
Typhoon In-fa gains more strength as it heads towards our boundary on Sunday evening or Monday morning. But according to PAGASA Weather Forecaster Samuel Duran, In-fa will have a re-curvature and will not make landfall in the country. It continues to move west-northwest with a speed of 20 kph. As of now, its last location was at 2,000 kilometers east of Mindanao with maximum winds of 150 kph and gustiness up to 185 kph.
When In-fa enters the Philippine Area of Responsibility, it will be given the local name of “Marilyn.” It will be the first tropical cyclone for the month of November and the 13th cyclone in the Philippines. Recently, 9 out of 12 of the tropical cyclones we experienced did not make landfall, and this is due to the effect of the strong El Niño.
