There will also be an elevated risk for mudslides in areas of rugged terrain.
Far northeast Mindanao will also be at risk for local flooding from downpours.Damaging winds will be possible near and just north of the storm's track as it slices across Visayas into Wednesday.Manila is forecast to avoid any significant impacts from Phanfone. However, gusty showers are possible during the day on Wednesday.
Improving weather is expected across all of the Philippines on Thursday as Phanfone tracks into the South China Sea.The storm will more than likely encounter hostile conditions with high wind shear that possibly cause it to dissipate by the weekend, with no further impacts to land.A period of more tranquil weather across the West Pacific basin is expected to follow in the wake of Phanfone.
