Philippine Weather Severe Typhoon Ulysses Updates
Weather Update by PAGASA Issued at 11:00 PM, 11, Nov 2020
TYPHOON “ULYSSES” FURTHER INTENSIFIES AND THE CENTER OF ITS EYE HAS MADE LANDFALL IN THE VICINITY OF PATNANUNGAN, QUEZON.
Destructive typhoon-force winds and intense with at times torrential rainfall associated with the region of the eyewall and inner rainbands of the typhoon will be experienced over central and southern portions of Aurora, the northern and central portion of Quezon including Polillo Islands, and the western portion of Camarines Norte within the next three hours. Heavy damage to infrastructure and vegetation is expected.
Hazards affecting land areas:
- Throughout the passage of the typhoon, destructive typhoon-force winds will be experiencing in areas under Tropical Cyclone Wind Signal (TCWS) #3, damaging gale- to storm-force winds in areas under TCWS #2, and a strong breeze to near gale conditions in areas under TCWS #1. The surge of the Northeast Monsoon will bring strong breeze to gale-force winds over the rest of Northern Luzon.
- Between tonight and tomorrow noon, heavy to intense with at times torrential rains over Camarines Norte, Camarines Sur, Metro Manila, CALABARZON, Central Luzon, Quirino, Nueva Vizcaya, and the eastern portion of Isabela. Moderate to heavy with at times intense rains over Cordillera Administrative Region, the rest of mainland Cagayan Valley, Pangasinan, Marinduque, the northern portion of Mindoro Provinces including Lubang Island, Albay, Catanduanes, and Burias Island. Light to moderate with at times heavy rains over the rest of Luzon and Visayas.
- Between tomorrow noon and tomorrow late-night, heavy to intense with at times torrential rains over Zambales, Bataan, Cavite, Batangas, and the northern portion of Occidental Mindoro including Lubang Island. Moderate to heavy with at times intense rains over Cordillera Administrative Region, mainland Cagayan Valley, Babuyan Islands, Pangasinan, Tarlac, Pampanga, Bulacan, Metro Manila, the rest of CALABARZON, the rest of Mindoro Provinces, and Calamian Islands. Light to moderate with at times heavy rains over Western Visayas and the rest of Luzon.
- Flooding (including flashfloods), rain-induced landslides, and sediment-laden streamflows (i.e. lahar) may occur during heavy or prolonged rainfall especially in areas that are highly or very highly susceptible to these hazards and/or those that received significant antecedent rainfall. PAGASA Regional Services Divisions may issue local thunderstorm/rainfall advisories and heavy rainfall warnings while the Hydrometeorology Division and River Basin Flood Forecasting and Warning Centers may issue General Flood Advisories and Basin Flood Bulletins as appropriate.
- A Storm Surge Warning is in effect. There is a high risk of storm surge with heights of up to 3.0 m over the coastal areas of Aurora, Quezon including Polillo Islands, and Camarines Norte, and up to 2.0 m over the coastal areas of Isabela, La Union, Zambales, Bataan, Pampanga, Bulacan, Metro Manila, Cavite, Batangas, the northern portions of Mindoro Provinces including Lubang Island, Marinduque, Romblon, Masbate including Ticao and Burias Islands, Catanduanes, Camarines Sur, Albay, and Sorsogon. These storm surges, which may be accompanied by swells and/or breaking waves near the coast, can cause life-threatening and damaging coastal inundation. Moreover, there is also a moderate risk of seiche or storm surge over the coastal areas surrounding Laguna de Bay.
Hazards affecting coastal waters:
- Within the next 24 hours, the combined effects of Typhoon “ULYSSES” and the surge of the Northeast Monsoon will bring rough to very high seas (2.5 to 11.0 m) over the seaboards of areas under TCWS and the northern seaboard of Northern Samar, rough to high seas (3.0 to 6.0 m) over the remaining seaboards of Northern Luzon, and rough to very rough seas (2.5 to 4.5 m) over the western seaboard of Palawan including Calamian and Kalayaan Islands. Sea travel is risky for all types of vessels over these waters.
- Moderate to rough seas (1.5 to 2.5 m) will be experienced over the eastern seaboards of Visayas and Mindanao, the seaboards of Cuyo Islands, and the western seaboard of Panay Island. Mariners of small seacrafts are advised to take precautionary measures when venturing out to sea. Inexperienced mariners should avoid navigating in these conditions
Track and intensity outlook:
- Track: The center of the eye of Typhoon “ULYSSES” made landfall in the vicinity of Patnanungan, Quezon at 10:30 PM today. Its center is forecast to make landfall over Polillo Island within the next hour and over mainland northern Quezon (General Nakar-Infanta area) with the next between 12:00 AM to 3:00 AM tomorrow. Afterwards, the typhoon will cross Central Luzon and emerge over the western seaboard of Zambales tomorrow morning. On the forecast track, the typhoon may exit the Philippine Area of Responsibility on Friday morning or afternoon.
- Intensity: “ULYSSES” is highly likely to make landfall over mainland northern Quezon at peak intensity. The typhoon is forecast to slightly weaken while crossing Central Luzon due to frictional effects in the presence of the Sierra Madre and Zambales Mountain Ranges. However, it is likely to remain a typhoon throughout its traverse.
