The departure of Typhoon Krosa from Luzon Island will not mean the end of tropical troubles for the Philippines with two more tropical systems potentially in the works for next week.
After enduring damaging winds and flooding rain Thursday night, northern Luzon Island experienced improving weather conditions Friday as Typhoon Krosa departed.
Krosa will set its sights on central Vietnam for early next week.
While Krosa heads toward Vietnam, there are signs that another tropical system will be impacting the Philippines around Monday of next week.
This system is likely to remain disorganized and may not even be a named system, but there will be increased rainfall with it and also some stronger wind gusts, mainly south of Manila and over some of the southern islands of the Philippines.
Then, another, more threatening storm looks to follow this one for the middle and end of next week.
The nation's capital of Manila escaped being significantly impacted from Krosa, but the city may fare worse next week.
"The second of the two systems will likely be the stronger of the two and could potentially become a typhoon," stated AccuWeather.com Meteorologist Eric Wanenchak. That would mean not only a return of heavy rain to the Philippines, but also damaging winds.
"There is additional concern for flooding from the second system since it will happen in quick succession to the first. Not enough time will pass for flood waters from the first system to recede or the ground to dry out," continued Wanenchak.
The second system is likely to also be off to the south of Manila, and depending on the strength of this system, could bring much more in the way of problems than the system on Monday does.
Residents of the Philippines should continue to check back with AccuWeather.com for the latest updates on the nation's impending tropical troubles.
