MANILA, Sept. 30 — Tropical Depression "Quedan" continues to move slowly and is expected to be out of the country by Thursday, according to the Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA).

Weather Forecaster Glaiza Escullar as of 4 p.m. Monday said tropical depression Quedan was located at east of Guiuan, Eastern Samar(13.2°N, 133.6°E) packed with maximum sustained winds of 55 kph near the center. It is forecast to move north at 7 kph.

Escullar said that Quedan as yet is not expected to affect any part of the country as no storm signal warning has been raised.

She said “Quedan” is not expected to make landfall in any part of the country.

With its northward and slow movement, she said Quedan will likely exit the Philippine area of responsibility (PAR) by Thursday headed towards southern Japan.

Escullar said that in the next 24 hours, Palawan, Bicol Region, Visayas, Caraga and Northern Mindanao will have cloudy skies with light to moderate rainshowers and thunderstorms due to intertropical convergence zone.

She added that the rest of the country including Metro Manila will experience “good weather condition” with only partly cloudy to at times cloudy with possible thunderstorm rains mostly in the afternoon or evening. (PNA)
