Tropical cyclone Sarah weakened into a tropical depression early Saturday as it proceeded to leave the Philippine Responsibility Area (PAR), said PAGASA State Weather Office.
The tropical cyclone is now bringing up to 55 km / h peak sustained winds with gusts up to 70 km / h.
Moving slowly north, Sarah is expected to exit PAR within the next 6 hours, said PAGASA.
It was last seen as at 4 a.m. at 700 kilometers northeast of Basco, Batanes or at PAR’s northern frontier.
PAGASA said that before leaving the country, Sarah could also weaken into a low-pressure area (LPA).
Nevertheless, the northeast monsoon will carry cloudy skies over Aurora and Quezon with scattered rains.
The state of Ilocos, the administrative region of the Cordillera and the Cagayan Valley may also encounter partly cloudy skies with scattered light rains.
