CEBU, Philippines — One to two tropical cyclones may enter or develop within the Philippine Area of Responsibility for the month of June, according to the Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA).

State weather forecasters said that the cyclones may take two climatological tracks this month. It may enter PAR moving towards the landmass but will not make landfall as it recurves or moves towards Japan or Taiwan.

The second scenario would be the cyclones traverse the southern part of Luzon or the eastern parts of Visayas and make landfall. It could tread directly over parts of the country before crossing the West Philippine Sea towards Vietnam or Hongkong.

Meanwhile, PAGASA is monitoring a tropical depression outside of the PAR.

Tropical depression with international name Maliksi was monitored 975km west of extreme Northern Luzon as of 3 p.m. yesterday.

It was carrying maximum sustained winds of 45km/h near the center and gustiness of up to 75km/h as it moved northeastward at 20km/h. PAGASA said that it has no direct effect on the country.

Easterlies are bringing isolated rains and thunderstorms over Metro Manila and the rest of the country. Over 40 areas in the country may experience heat index of dangerous levels today, ranging between 42 to 46 degrees Celsius.

They warned of likely heat cramps and heat exhaustion, with heat stroke probable in continued exposure at these temperatures. — (FREEMAN)
