Typhoon Chedeng is gradually weakening and is expected to move away from the Philippine landmass by Monday, according to the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) [1]. As of the latest bulletin issued by PAGASA at 5 a.m. on Sunday, Chedeng was located at a distance of 990 kilometers east of extreme northern Luzon, with maximum winds of 130 kilometers per hour near the center and gusts of up to 160 kph.

Typhoon Chedeng Weakens and Moves Away from the Philippines

Although Chedeng is not expected to directly bring heavy rainfall to any part of the Philippines, it will continue to enhance the southwest monsoon (habagat) over the western portions of Luzon and Visayas in the next three days. The southwest monsoon conditions will persist even after Chedeng moves away from the country, as the formation of a frontal system north of extreme northern Luzon will further enhance the habagat from Tuesday onwards.

No tropical cyclone wind signals have been raised in any part of the country. However, Metro Manila, Calabarzon, Mimaropa, Ilocos Region, and other parts of Luzon and Western Visayas may experience gusty conditions brought by the habagat. The southwest monsoon will continue to be mainly enhanced by another weather system, leading to gusty conditions over most of Luzon from Tuesday onwards.

It is important to note that Chedeng was initially classified as a low-pressure area (LPA) located off Eastern Visayas, which later developed into a tropical depression. Chedeng is the third tropical cyclone to enter the Philippine area of responsibility (PAR) this year, following Tropical Depression Amang in April and Typhoon Betty in the previous month.

PAGASA will continue to monitor the movement and intensity of Chedeng and provide further updates through their weather advisories. For the latest updates on Typhoon Chedeng and other weather-related information, you can visit the ABS-CBN Weather Center.
