Coastal Inundation:

There is a minimal to moderate risk of storm surge over the exposed and low-lying coastal areas of Cagayan, Isabela, Aurora, Central Luzon, Metro Manila, CALABARZON, Mindoro Provinces, Marinduque, Romblon, Camarines Norte, Camarines Sur, Albay (west coast), Burias Island, mainland Masbate (northwest coast), and Aklan within the next 24 hours. For detailed information, refer to Storm Surge Warning No. 1 issued at 8:00 AM today.


Under the influence of AGHON, a Gale Warning is hoisted over the coastal waters of Aurora, Quezon, Marinduque, the southern coastal waters of Batangas, and the northern coastal waters of Camarines Norte. Sea travel is risky for small seacrafts, including all motorbancas of any type of tonnage. For more information, refer to Gale Warning No. 2 (Intermediate) issued at 11:00 AM today.

Outside the Gale Warning areas, AGHON will bring moderate to rough seas (1.5 to 3.5 meters) over the coastal waters along the northern and eastern seaboards of Luzon and the seaboard of Bicol Region. Mariners of small vessels are advised to take precautionary measures while venturing out to sea and, if possible, avoid navigating in these conditions.


In the next 12 hours, AGHON will move across the landmass of mainland CALABARZON and Polillo Islands. The tropical storm is forecast to be over the waters off the east coast of Quezon or Aurora this evening or early tomorrow morning. During this period, AGHON is likely to remain a tropical storm, though weakening into a tropical depression while over mainland CALABARZON is not ruled out due to land interaction.

From Monday onwards, AGHON will gradually accelerate northeastward while intensifying. It is forecast to reach severe tropical storm category on Monday and potentially reach Typhoon category by Tuesday afternoon or evening, with a possible exit from the PAR region on Wednesday.


Location of Eye/Center: The center of Tropical Storm AGHON was estimated based on all available data, including those from Tagaytay Doppler Weather Radar, in the vicinity of Sariaya, Quezon (14.0 °N, 121.5 °E).
Movement: Moving Northwestward at 10 km/h.
Strength: Maximum sustained winds of 75 km/h near the center and gustiness of up to 125 km/h.
