Tropical Depression Kabayan is the Philippines’ 11th tropical cyclone for 2023 and the first for December.

As of 7 a.m. on Sunday, Kabayan was already 460 kilometers east of Davao City, moving west at 15 kilometers per hour (km/h). The tropical depression has maximum sustained winds of 55 km/h and gustiness of up to 70 km/h.

“Kabayan is forecast to follow a generally west northwestward path across the Philippine archipelago over the next two days and is likely to maintain its strength until its initial landfall over Mindanao. However, the possibility of reaching tropical storm category pre-landfall is not ruled out,” said the weather bureau Pagasa.

Pagasa warned that Kabayan will bring heavy rain on Sunday and Monday, Dec. 18.
