According to the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA), the typhoon continues to intensify while moving westward over the Philippine Sea.

Track and Intensity Outlook

  • The typhoon is forecast to move west-southwestward this afternoon until Saturday evening.
  • Afterwards, it will turn west-northwestward as it moves over the sea off the coast of Bicol Region towards the eastern coast of Aurora-Quezon area.
  • The center of the eye of “Rolly” is likely to make landfall over the Aurora-Quezon area on Sunday evening or Monday early morning.
  • The typhoon is forecast to continuously intensify over the Philippine Sea and is likely to make landfall at peak intensity of 175-185 km/h.

Tropical Cyclone Wind Signal

Currently, there is no Tropical Cyclone Wind Signal (TCWS) in effect. However, TCWS #1 may be raised over several provinces in the Bicol Region this afternoon.

“Given that it is likely for this typhoon to continue intensifying prior to landfall, the highest possible TCWS that will be raised throughout the passage of this typhoon will be TCWS #3 or #4 (associated with destructive to very destructive typhoon-force winds).”
