Tropical Depression Falcon develops, stronger than Egay

As expected, the Low Pressure Area spotted East of Visayas is now a Tropical Depression, only a day after after Tropical Depression Egay has left the Philippine Area of Responsibility.

PAGASA's weather forecast issued at 11AM on Tuesday, June 21, says that the Low Pressure Area in East of Visayas has developed into a tropical depression and was named as "Falcon".

Tropical Depression Falcon is currently located 670 km East of Borongan, Eastern Samar (11.7°N, 132.3°E) with maximum sustained winds of 55 kph near the center and is moving West Northwest at 19 kph.

Based on PAGASA's forecast, Falcon is expected to be 440 kms East of Virac, Catanduanes by Wednesday morning and 420 km East Northeast of Casiguran, Aurora on Thursday morning.

That just means, we could expect a rainy weekend as Falcon moves to North of Luzon.

While Falcon appears to be stronger than Egay, it's unlikely to make landfall.

No public storm warning signals raised on PAGASA's 1st Bulletin for Tropical Depression Falcon.
