MANILA, Philippines (Updated, 12:01 p.m.) — Tropical cyclone Inday (international name: Muifa) intensified into a severe tropical storm, but it remained less likely to bring heavy rains over the country, state weather bureau PAGASA said Friday.

Inday was seen 800 kilometers east of Aparri, Cagayan, with peak winds of 95 kph near the center and gusts of up to 115 kph.

It accelerated while over the Philippine Sea, moving northwest at 20 kph.

“Aside from the rain showers caused by its trough, severe tropical storm Inday remains less likely to bring heavy rains in the country throughout the forecast period,” PAGASA said.

The weather agency also said that hoisting of wind signals over any land area in the country remains unlikely.

Inday may bring moderate to rough seas over the seaboards of Batanes (2 to 4 meters) and Babuyan Islands (1.5 to 3 meters) starting mid to late Saturday. These conditions may be risky for those using small seacrafts.

PAGASA said that Inday may further intensify until Sunday or early Monday.

It is expected to exit the Philippine Area of Responsibility early next week.
