The center of the eye of Typhoon Goring was estimated based on all available data at 165 km East of Calayan, Cagayan.
Forecast rainfall are generally higher in elevated or mountainous areas. Under these conditions, flooding and rain-induced landslides are still expected especially in areas that are highly or very highly susceptible to these hazards as identified in hazard maps and in localities that experienced considerable amounts of rainfall for the past several days.
The enhanced Southwest Monsoon will also bring occasional or monsoon rains over the western portions of Central Luzon, Southern Luzon, and Visayas over the next three days.
The wind signals warn the public of the general wind threat over an area due to the tropical cyclone. Local winds may be slightly stronger/enhanced in coastal and upland/mountainous areas exposed to winds. Winds are less strong in areas sheltered from the prevailing wind direction.
The enhanced Southwest Monsoon will continue to bring gusty conditions over the following areas not under any Wind Signal, especially in coastal and upland/mountainous areas exposed to winds:
- Today: Aurora, Bataan, Bulacan, Metro Manila, CALABARZON, MIMAROPA, Bicol Region, Visayas, Dinagat Islands, Camiguin, and most of Zamboanga Peninsula.
- Tomorrow: Ilocos Region, Zambales, Bataan, Bulacan, Aurora, Metro Manila, CALABARZON, MIMAROPA, Bicol Region, and Visayas.
Typhoon Goring slightly intensifies
- Thursday: Ilocos Region, Cordillera Administrative Region, Zambales, Bataan, Bulacan, Aurora, Metro Manila, CALABARZON, MIMAROPA, Bicol Region, and Western Visayas.
Goring is forecast to follow a mainly northwestward or west northwestward path across the Luzon Strait from today until it exits the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) tomorrow evening or Thursday morning.
The latest track forecast indicates that the typhoon may pass very close or make landfall in the vicinity of Babuyan Island between tonight or tomorrow early morning (although a slight northward shift in the track forecast may bring the eye and eyewall region of the typhoon to the southern portion of Batanes).
During this period, the typhoon is forecast to persist in strength by the time it passes very close or over Batanes (although gradual re-intensifying and reaching into a super typhoon category is not ruled out).
