PAG-ASA has released a bulletin 5PM on Sunday stating a weather forecast that Tropical Storm Songda (locally named Chedeng) might enter the Philippine area of responsibility by Sunday night or Monday morning.

Based on the bulletin posted on PAG-ASA's official website, at 4:00 p.m. Sunday, Tropical Storm Songda (Bagyong Chedeng) was estimated at 1,050 km East of Northern Mindanao,(10.0°N, 136.2°E) with maximum sustained winds of 85 kph near the center and gustiness of up to 100 kph.

It's being forecast to move West Northwest at 11 kph.

Here's a satellite image of Tropical Storm Songda, as of 5PM Sunday:

while this one is the latest satellite image, as of 1 AM today, Monday (May 23) and Chedeng is indeed coming near to our country:

Also notice that Chedeng has a wide reach, and appears bigger than the whole Philippines. Kinda scary!

Let's pray that Chedeng won't pass here and move away!
