All storm signals lifted as Tropical Depression

All tropical cyclone wind signals have been lifted as Tropical Depression "Carina" slowly exits the Philippines, weather bureau PAGASA stated on its bulletin issued at 09:00 UTC (17:00 LT) on Tuesday, July 14, 2020. The system continued moving northwestward with maximum sustained winds of 45 km/h (28 mph) near the center and gusts to 55 km/h (34 mph).

While all storm signals have been cleared, PAGASA warned that coastal areas in Northern Luzon may still experience intermittent gusts. Isolated rains are still possible by afternoon and night due to localized thunderstorms. 

Moderate to rough seas are forecast over the seaboards of Batanes, Ilocos Norte, Cagayan including the Babuyan Islands, and Isabela on Wednesday, July 15. 

The weather bureau also advised fisherfolks with small seacrafts to avoid venturing out to the sea while the system is still in the area of responsibility.

Carina is expected to weaken into a Low-Pressure area on Tuesday evening or Wednesday morning.

As of 08:00 UTC (16:00 LT), the center of the tropical depression was estimated based on all available data at 140 km (87 miles) west-northwest of Basco Batanes. It is forecast to be 385 km (239 miles) north of Basco on Wednesday afternoon.
