MANILA, Philippines - A tropical storm with international name "Maysak" is expected to enter the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) by Wednesday or Thursday but the country will experience its effects by weekend.

The typhoon will be named 'Chedeng' once it enters PAR, the third to enter the country this year.

In an interview with ABS-CBN News Channel, Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration weather forecaster Aldczar Aurelio said that the storm will make landfall by Saturday or Sunday.

Chedeng will not directly affect the country once it enters but may bring rains and winds by Friday or Saturday over Northern or Central Luzon.

Aurelio noted that a high pressure area extending over Northern Luzon is blocking the way of the typhoon which would affect its path.

According to the PAGASA forecaster, the typhoon may weaken once it reaches Northern and Central Luzon over the weekend.

Isabela, Cagayan, Aurora, Quezon and Bicol region will experience the effects of the typhoon once it makes landfall.

PAGASA will have a more accurate forecast of the typhoon when it enters PAR by Thursday night or Wednesday morning.
