By 11:30 p.m., the cyclone's center was in the vicinity of Burdeos where it made its second landfall. It further strengthened before landing anew over General Nakar in the northern part of the province at 1:30 a.m.

In an earlier advisory, state weather bureau PAGASA forecasted that Ulysses' peak intensity will occur while it made its third landfall.

The cyclone is expected to slightly weaken as it slams against the tips of Sierra Madre and Zambales mountain ranges while remaining a typhoon.

It is then likely to emerge over the western seaboard of Zambales on Thursday morning, according to PAGASA's estimates.
