The weak Tropical Storm PARMA (PEPENG) barely moving off the east coast of Cagayan & Isabela...may turn back again to the West and cross Northern Luzon for the 3rd time. Widespread rains across parts of Northern Luzon to continue.

*Residents and visitors along Northern Luzon should closely monitor the progress of PARMA.

*Kindly refer to your local warnings & bulletins issued by your country's official weather agency. This advisory is intended for additional information purposes only.

+ Forecast Outlook: PARMA is expected track westerly & cross Northern Luzon again, but it may be just a TD. The 3 to 5-day Long-Range Forecast shows PARMA regaining TS strength as it reaches the South China Sea on Saturday, Oct 10.

+ Effects: PARMA's loose and weak circulation trying to reform while off the east coast of Cagayan/Isabela...will continue to dump excessive amounts of rainfall across most of Northern Luzon, where possible flooding is likely. 1-day rainfall accumulations of 75 up to 200 mm (moderate to heavy rain) can be expected along PARMA's rainbands...with isolated accumulations of up to 300 mm (very heavy rain) near the center of PARMA or along mountains slopes. Residents in low-lying areas & steep slopes must remain alert & seek evacuation for possible life-threatening flash floods, mudslides & landslides due to the anticipated heavy rains brought about by this system. Precautionary measures must be initiated if necessary.
