MANILA, Philippines — A tropical depression spotted off Mindanao is expected to enter the Philippine area of responsibility this weekend.

The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) said the tropical depression was located 1,290 kilometers east of Mindanao as of 3 p.m. yesterday, packing winds of 55 kilometers per hour near the center and gustiness of up to 70 kph.

PAGASA said the weather disturbance is forecast to move west at 20 kph and likely to intensify into a storm within the next 24 hours.

The tropical depression is predicted to move north or northwest and slow down to almost stationary today.

It will be locally named Bising once it enters the country.

“Over the next five days, this tropical cyclone is unlikely to affect any portion of the country,” PAGASA said.
