Tropical depression to bring significant rainfall into the Philippines over the next 24 hours

Good afternoon from the Western Pacific Weather team.

A tropical low has intensified into a tropical depression right near the Philippines, and it will bring significant rainfall over the next 24 hours. The focal point of the storm has moved closer to Luzon, bringing flooding concerns into Manila and the surrounding areas. Those living from Cebu northward should be concerned with persistent rainfall during the overnight hours and throughout the day Friday. Those further south may be dealing with some windy conditions along with some rain, but the main concerns are in the central and northern regions of the country. Be on the lookout for the potential for rainfall up to 150 mm during the next 24 hours.
