MANILA, Philippines – State weather agency PAGASA is closely monitoring the movement of Typhoon Kammuri while it moves near the Philippine area of Responsibility (PAR).

As of 10:00 AM on Thursday (November 28), ‘Kammuri’ was located at 1,430 km East of Visayas with maximum sustained winds of 120 km/h and gustiness of up to 150 km/h.

It has slowed down while moving towards the west northwestward direction at 10km/h.

PAGASA said ‘Kammuri’ is expected to enter the country between Saturday evening (November 30) and Sunday morning (December 1).

It will be named tropical cyclone Tisoy once it enters PAR.

PAGASA forecast Kammuri to intensify further before making landfall in Southern Luzon on Tuesday (December 3) but it is expected to weaken as it crosses land though it may remain a typhoon.

Meanwhile on Thursday (November 28), scattered rain showers will affect Visayas, Caraga, Northern Mindanao and Zamboanga Peninsula due to the trough of the typhoon.

Similar weather will also prevail over the Cordillera Administrative Region, Cagayan Valley, Bicol Region, Aurora and Quezon provinces due to the effects of the northeast monsoon or amihan.

Likewise, Metro Manila and the rest of the country will experience isolated rainshowers throughout the day. MNP (with reports from Rey Pelayo)
