Mawar may have a substantial effect on extreme Northern Luzon locations such as Batanes, Babuyan Islands, and mainland Cagayan, with maximum sustained winds of 195 km/h and gustiness of up to 240 km/h. Furthermore, the typhoon may intensify the southwest monsoon, causing heavy rain in Cagayan Valley and hitting the country's western region, including Metro Manila.

The current location and movement of Super Typhoon Mawar

Super Typhoon Mawar was around 2,000 kilometers east of Southeastern Luzon as of the most recent report, remaining outside the Philippine area of responsibility. It is traveling at a pace of 15 kilometers per hour west-northwest. The typhoon's greatest sustained winds are 195 kilometers per hour, with gusts reaching 240 kilometers per hour. Mawar's trajectory might change slightly southward in the next days, putting it closer to the Philippines.

Impact on the Extreme Northern Luzon Areas

If Super Typhoon Mawar makes landfall in the Philippines, it is likely to have a substantial effect on extreme Northern Luzon locations such as Batanes, the Babuyan Islands, and mainland Cagayan. These places should brace themselves for probable consequences like as high winds, heavy rains, and dangerous seas. Preventive evacuation plans are being developed, especially for coastal settlements and places prone to floods and landslides. Local governments and communities must be attentive and follow official advice from PAGASA and disaster risk reduction and management institutions.

Potential Improvements to the Southwest Monsoon

Typhoon Superstorm Mawar may potentially strengthen the southwest monsoon, or "habagat," this weekend and into early next week. This might bring to heavier rainfall in the country's west, including Metro Manila. While Mawar will not directly strike the Philippines at this time, the related southwesterly wind flow will provide gloomy skies, scattered showers, thunderstorms, and lightning across the western sections of Southern Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao. These meteorological conditions are possible in Palawan, Western Visayas, Northern Mindanao, Zamboanga Peninsula, Soccsksargen, and Bangsamoro.


The possibility of Super Typhoon Mawar entering the Philippine area of responsibility is cause for alarm, especially in extreme Northern Luzon. Strong gusts, torrential rains, and severe sea conditions are all expected. Residents in these areas, as well as coastal communities and flood-prone regions, should closely monitor official weather updates and follow the instructions of local authorities regarding possible preemptive evacuation measures. Furthermore, the southwest monsoon may intensify, resulting in heavier rainfall in the western part of the nation, including Metro Manila. During this weather event, keep informed, stay safe, and prioritize your own and your community's protection.
