PAGASA said that the highest wind signal that it would likely raise is Signal No. 4.

Karding is likely to make landfall Sunday morning or afternoon as a typhoon over the east coast of Aurora or the northern portion of Quezon, according to PAGASA.

From Saturday night to early Sunday morning, light to moderate with at times heavy rains are expected over Batanes, Cagayan, Isabela, the northern portion of Aurora, Catanduanes, Camarines Norte and Camarines Sur.

From the rest of Sunday until early Monday morning, Aurora, Nueva Ecija, Tarlac, Pangasinan, and the northern portion of Zambales are expected to experience heavy to intense with at times torrential rains.

During that same period, Central Luzon will experience moderate to heavy with at times intense rains, while Cagayan, Isabela, Quirino, Nueva Vizcaya, Cordillera Administrative Region, Ilocos Provinces, La Union, Metro Manila and Calabarzon will experience moderate to heavy rains.

“Under these conditions, scattered flooding and rain-induced landslides are possible, especially in areas that are highly or very highly susceptible to these hazards,” PAGASA warned.

Occasional rains may also occur over most of Southern Luzon and Visayas, especially over their western sections, starting Saturday or Sunday due to the southwest monsoon or habagat influenced by Karding.

A gale warning is up over the eastern seaboards of Luzon due to Karding, while PAGASA warns small seacrafts that sailing may be risky in the northern and western seaboards of Northern Luzon due to the northeasterlies and the cyclone.
