Paeng is expected to exit the Philippines’ monitoring area by Monday, but not before re-intensifying into a severe tropical storm. PAGASA sees it weakening by late Tuesday. 

Meanwhile, the state weather bureau is also monitoring another weather disturbance expected to enter the Philippine area of responsibility Monday morning, which will then be named tropical depression “Queenie.” 

Queenie’s center was last spotted 1,250 km east of northeastern Mindanao, moving 14 kph west northwestward. PAGASA said it is “unlikely” to directly affect the country throughout the forecast period.
