MANILA, Philippines — Filipinos should brace for up to four tropical cyclones this month.

Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) weather specialist Ariel Rojas said cyclones that develop over the Pacific Ocean in July either “recurve” or return to the Pacific, sideswipe the northern part of Luzon or hit landmass in northern, central or southern Luzon.

“These are the general tracks of the cyclones that entered the country between 1948 and 2017,” Rojas said.

He said cyclones that do not make landfall and pass the eastern section of Luzon could enhance the southwest monsoon or habagat and bring rains over the western section of Luzon.

Rojas said 10 to 14 cyclones are expected to enter the Philippine area of responsibility between July and December.

He said no tropical cyclone was forecast to develop within or outside the Philippine area of responsibility in the next three to five days.
