As the situation unfolds, it is crucial to stay informed and prepared. This article provides an overview of the latest updates and key information regarding Super Typhoon Mawar.

Arrival and Intensity

Super Typhoon Mawar is anticipated to enter PAR on Friday evening or Saturday morning, with its name changing to Betty upon entry. PAGASA weather specialist Ana Clauren-Jorda emphasizes that Mawar is expected to maintain its super typhoon intensity as it moves west-northwestward towards Extreme Northern Luzon. The maximum sustained winds of Mawar may reach 215 kilometers per hour (km/h), categorizing it as a super typhoon.

Potential Impact

Super Typhoon Mawar's rain bands are predicted to bring heavy rainfall over the Cagayan Valley from Sunday to Tuesday of the following week. Moreover, it is likely to enhance the southwest monsoon, leading to monsoon rains in the western parts of Luzon and Visayas from Sunday or Monday onward. It's important to note that the scenario of monsoon rains may still change, depending on Mawar's track and intensity. PAGASA advises continuous monitoring for updates related to this tropical cyclone.

Potential Wind Signals

PAGASA mentions the possibility of raising Tropical Cyclone Wind Signals in the coming days due to potentially strong to gale-force conditions in most areas of the region, excluding the Batanes-Babuyan Islands area. The latter may experience gale to storm-force conditions. The signal warnings are expected to range from Signal No. 2 to 3 in Batanes and Babuyan Islands, while other parts of Cagayan Valley may have Signal No. 1 to 2. These wind signals serve as crucial alerts for the public and disaster risk reduction and management offices to take appropriate precautions.

Continuous Monitoring

Considering the potential impacts of Super Typhoon Mawar, PAGASA urges the public and relevant authorities to remain vigilant and stay updated on the latest developments regarding this tropical cyclone. Continuous monitoring is essential for effective disaster preparedness and response. Stay tuned to official weather advisories, follow safety protocols, and heed instructions from local authorities to ensure the well-being of yourself and your community.


As Super Typhoon Mawar approaches the Philippine Area of Responsibility, it is crucial to stay informed and prepared for its potential impact. With the typhoon anticipated to maintain its super typhoon intensity and the possibility of close approach, monitoring official weather advisories and following safety protocols is essential. Stay updated on the changing situation and heed instructions from local authorities to ensure the safety and well-being of all.
