MANILA, Philippines — Typhoon Paeng has reduced strength anew as it continues to move away from the country at a slow pace, state weather bureau PAGASA said Wednesday morning.

“Paeng” now packs maximum sustained winds of 160 kilometers per hour near the center from the previous 190 kph. Its gustiness also decreased to 195 kph from the previous 235 kph.

Although no tropical cyclone warning signal has been raised, the typhoon is expected to bring light to at times moderate rains over northern Luzon starting Friday.

Typhoon Paeng is forecast to leave the Philippine Area of Responsibility on Saturday.
