A big rain maker in the forecast for Visayas and eastern Mindanao over the coming days with up to 100mm of rain in coastal Leyte and Samar is very well likely with lesser amounts extending inland towards Cebu and Cagayan.
This is all the result of a low pressure area that has gained an impressive amount of organization over the past 24hrs in the Philippine Sea. ( Commonly known as the Philippine Sea Effect ) Do not expect this TD to reach Tropical Storm Status but as we have seen in the past this far south in the Philippines even weak Tropical Depressions can cause problems. One of the deadlier storms in recent memory “Washi” was just a Tropical Storm when it came on shore but still it resulted in mass casualties across northern Mindanao. I am not saying this storm has that potential but just reminding you that these storms albeit small and now to strong can still pack a punch.
