(Updated: 10:30 PM, Manila Time) Typhoon Chedeng (Songda) remains at sea. Chedeng is classified as a Category 3 storm which means it is packing more than 194 kilometer per hour wind, according to Weather Underground. The typhoon continues to pour rain. Areas around the country like Metro Manila, Central Luzon, and others will continue to experience foul weather which could lead to flooding.

According to Typhoon2000.com, the outer rainbands of the storm is spreading across Bicol region, Masbate, and Eastern Visayas so those areas should expect moderate to strong winds as well as rainfall between 5 to 200 mm. Imagine rainbands as the “reach” of the storm.

The Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration meanwhile said that Chedeng could dump between 32 to 64 mm of rainfall.

Chedeng’s eye remains at sea in spite of it growing more powerful. Storm tracks project that it will continue to cruise along the Philippines’ eastern coastline. Of course this data could change. PAGASA meanwhile predicts that the storm will strike land at Aurora-Isabela.

Coastal areas are warned of storm surges and tall waves and above normal tide levels.

The south west monsoon is also expected to affect Palawan and Western Mindanao, which means those areas will experience rain. Likewise areas like Metro Manila are expected to receive the same foul weather. So everyone please expect heavy rain, and flooding even in areas that are not covered by storm signals.

PAGASA issued Severe Weather Bulletin No. 10 and has raised storm signal no. 2 in the following regions: Catanduanes, Sorsogon,
Albay, Camarines Sur, Camarines Norte, and Samar provinces. Signal no. 1 is up over Aurora, Marinduque, Masbate, Burias and Ticao Islands, Quezon, Polilio Island, Biliran Island and Northern Leyte.

No Storm signal is up over Mindanao, but the weather bureau says the area could experience Gale force winds along the eastern seaboard of Mindanao.
