I. Situation Overview
Issued at 5 PM, 08 September 2021, “JOLINA” weakens into a Tropical Storm and is now heading towards Bataan.
In the next 24 hours, heavy to intense will be experienced over Bataan, Cavite, Occidental Mindoro, and Oriental Mindoro.
Moderate to heavy with at times intense rains are also likely over the rest of Central Luzon and CALABARZON.
Light to moderate with at times heavy rains over Metro Manila, Ilocos Region, Cordillera Administrative Region, and Cagayan Valley. Under these conditions, scattered to widespread flooding (including flash floods) and rain-induced landslides are highly likely especially in areas that are highly or very highly susceptible to these hazard as identified in hazard maps.
Damaging gale-force to storm-force winds are likely to occur within any of the areas where TCWS #2 is in effect. This may bring generally light to moderate damage to structures and vegetation.
Strong winds (strong breeze to near gale conditions) with occasional gusts will be experienced in areas where Tropical Cyclone Wind Signal (TCWS) #1 is in effect. This may result to up to very light damage to structures and vegetation.
- Coastal areas of localities under TCWS, especially those at #2 may experience coastal flooding due to hazardous surf conditions.
The tropical storm will continue moving generally northwestward over the mouth of Manila Bay before making its another landfall over the vicinity of Bataan Peninsula this afternoon or evening.
“JOLINA” is forecast to emerge over the West Philippine Sea on tonight or tomorrow early morning. Re-intensification is forecast to occur beginning tomorrow evening as the tropical cyclone moves generally westward over the West Philippine Sea towards the southern China-northern Vietnam area.
This tropical cyclone is forecast to exit the Philippine Area of Responsibility on tomorrow evening or Friday early morning.
The center of Tropical Storm “JOLINA” was estimated based on all available data over the Manila Bay or 135 km South of Sangley Point, Cavite (14.3°N,120.6°E).
