We have our latest Video Update on Tropical Depression 08W (Bagyong Isang) which continues to spin up just east of the Philippines. The system is currently in the early stages of cyclone development with weak and disorganized convection. Nevertheless, the proximity of the system to the island of Luzon is causing rain showers to fall across the island particularly on the Eastern sections. Furthermore, isolated thunderstorm are also popping across Central and Southern Luzon which could bring heavy rains and strong winds in a short amount of time.

Tropical Depression 08W is forecast to continue moving slowly to the northwest. TD 08W could brush the coast of the province of Cagayan by tomorrow (Wednesday) as a weak Tropical Storm. After Luzon, the system is forecast to head north and could move towards Taiwan by Thursday and Friday.
We’ll continue to have updates on this depression so continue to check back. As always, if you live in the affected areas in Northern Luzon, make sure to coordinate with the official weather bureau (PAGASA) and your local officials for the latest warnings in your area. Stay safe!
