US Navy forecast for Super Typhoon Maysak

Super Typhoon Maysak is the first ever super typhoon that will somehow affect the country in the month of April. April is supposed to be in the middle of the dry season in the country. The arrival of Super Typhoon Maysak also coincides with the long Holy Week weekend in the country.  Many people will be going out of town in the coming days.  People who are planning to spend Holy Week in the coastal areas of the Bicol region and Central and Northern Luzon are advised to monitor the weather updates by PAGASA.

Bagyong Chedeng is expected to affect parts of the country starting Black Saturday. The typhoon is expected to make landfall somewhere in Luzon on Sunday but Chedeng is expected to weaken further by then.

Super Typhoon Maysak is the 4th typhoon that developed in the Western Pacific this year. It is the most number of typhoons prior to April 1 since 1965 where there were 5 typhoons before April.
