MANILA, Philippines – Tropical Storm Julian (Aere) is making its way out of the country, as it approaches the western boundary of the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR).

In its bulletin issued 11 am on Thursday, October 6, state weather bureau PAGASA said the tropical storm is 210 kilometers west of Basco, Batanes, still moving west at 25 kilometers per hour (km/h).

Julian is expected to leave PAR on Thursday afternoon.

It has slightly weakened, with maximum winds of up to 75 km/h and gustiness of up to 115 km/h.

The tropical cyclone warning signal for Batanes and the Babuyan Group of Islands has been downgraded to signal number 1 from signal number 2.

Moderate to heavy rain, however, is still expected within the 300-km diameter of the tropical storm.

Batanes experienced the effects of 3 typhoons last month – Ferdie (Meranti), Gener (Malakas), and Helen (Megi). Relief and recovery operations are ongoing in the province.

With Julian inside PAR, PAGASA also warned small seacraft not to venture out into the northern seaboard of Northern Luzon.
