Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, September 16) — Typhoon Nanmadol entered the country’s weather monitoring area at 5:40 pm Friday and was given the name Josie, the state weather bureau said.

This is the 10th tropical cyclone to enter the Philippines this year and the second for September.

The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) earlier said it is expected to exit by Friday night or early Saturday.

It added that there is a possibility for Josie to reach super typhoon category once it leaves the country while heading to Japan’s Ryukyu Islands.

PAGASA last spotted Josie at 1,445 kilometers east northeast of extreme northern Luzon as of 3 p.m., with winds of 175 kilometers per hour and gusts of up to 215 kph. It was moving northwestward at 10 kph.

Josie is forecast to remain far from the Philippine landmass and will not directly affect the weather condition in the country. However, the southwest monsoon or habagat enhanced by the typhoon will bring rains over the western sections of Southern Luzon and Visayas in the next 24 hours.

Due to the habagat, PAGASA also said cloudy skies and scattered rainshowers and thunderstorms may be experienced over western Visayas, Palawan, and Occidental Mindoro.

Meanwhile, Metro Manila and the rest of the country will experience partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rainshowers or thunderstorms caused by habagat and localized thunderstorms.
