MANILA, Philippines — Severe Tropical Storm Perla (international name Neoguri) left the Philippine area of responsibility on Sunday night, according to the state weather bureau.

The weather disturbance was spotted at 1,215 kilometers northeast of extreme Northern Luzon as of 4 a.m. yesterday, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) said.

Perla lingered over the Philippine Sea for days but did not affect any part of the country.

It was the 16th cyclone to enter the Philippine area of responsibility this year.

Meanwhile, the typhoon spotted over the Pacific Ocean was still not expected to enter the country, PAGASA weather specialist Loriedin dela Cruz said.

She said Typhoon Bualoi was last located at 2,670 kms. east of Southern Luzon, with maximum sustained winds of 130 kph near the center and gustiness of up to 160 kph.

It was forecast to move west northwest at 15 kph.

PAGASA said the northeasterly windflow will bring scattered rains over Quezon, Camarines provinces and Catanduanes in the next 24 hours.

The weather system will also bring isolated light rains over Batanes, Ilocos Norte, Apayao and Cagayan.

Metro Manila and the rest of the country will experience partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rains due to thunderstorms.
