Forecast Track

After crossing Central or Northern Luzon, the tropical cyclone is forecast to emerge over the West Philippine Sea tomorrow late evening or Monday early morning. KARDING will then continue tracking westward over the West Philippine Sea for the remainder of the forecast period. While it is likely for this tropical cyclone to slightly weaken due to land interaction during its traverse over Northern and Central Luzon, it is highly likely that KARDING will remain a typhoon while crossing the landmass.

PAGASA reminds the public to be highly or very highly susceptible to hazards and follow evacuation and other instructions from local authorities. The next tropical cyclone bulletin will be issued by PAGASA at 5:00 PM today.
