MANILA, Philippines — The trough of Tropical Storm Inday can bring rain over parts of Eastern Visayas, but will not directly affect the weather condition of the country, state weather forecasters said yesterday.

Inday (international name Muifa) is unlikely to bring heavy rain in most parts of the country and hoisting of tropical cyclone wind signals remains unlikely, according to the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration.

PAGASA said Inday could cause moderate to rough sea condition over the seaboards of extreme Northern Luzon, which may be risky for small sea vessels.

Inday could intensify further into a severe tropical storm as it tracks the Philippine Sea.

As of 3 p.m. yesterday, the tropical storm was spotted 1,045 km east of Northern Luzon, packing maximum sustained winds of 75 kilometers per hour near the center and gustiness of up to 90 kph as it moved westward.

Inday is forecast to move generally northwestward and may exit the Philippine area of responsibility on Sunday or Monday.

Meanwhile, localized thunderstorms will bring isolated rain showers over Metro Manila and the rest of the country.

PAGASA warned of possible flash floods or landslides during moderate to at times heavy rain.
