Tisoy weakens further as it nears PAR exit 1

MANILA—Tropical cyclone Tisoy weakened into a tropical storm as it continued its way out of the Philippine area of responsibility (PAR), state weather bureau PAGASA said Thursday.

The storm was last seen 540 kilometers west of Subic, Zambales as of 4 a.m., packing 65 kph winds near the center and 80 kph gusts.

Moving west at a speed of 15 kph, Tisoy was forecast to leave PAR Thursday morning.

Meanwhile, 2 weather systems are currently affecting parts of Luzon, weather specialist Loriedin De La Cruz said.


The tail-end of a cold front is affecting the eastern section of northern and Central Luzon while the northeast monsoon or amihan is prevailing over the rest of northern Luzon.

The tail-end of a cold front or the interaction of cold air and warm air from the Pacific Ocean will bring cloudy skies with scattered rains and thunderstorm over Cagayan Valley, Cordillera Administrative Region and the province of Aurora.

Ilocos Region and the rest of Central Luzon will have cloudy skies with light rains due to the northeast monsoon.

Metro Manila and the rest of the country will experience fair weather with chances of localized thunderstorms.
