Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, December 1) — A tropical storm with international name Nyatoh is seen to enter the Philippine Area of Responsibility on Wednesday, but it is unlikely to affect any part of the country, the state weather bureau said.

"It is expected to enter our Area of Responsibility today -- this afternoon or this evening," weather specialist Ana Clauren of the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration told CNN Philippines' New Day on Wednesday.

It is "less likely" to make landfall, and has "no direct effect" on any part of the country, she added.

The forecaster also said the storm may exit PAR 24 to 36 hours after entering.

For this month, up to three tropical cyclones may enter or form in the monitoring area, Clauren said.

Meanwhile, for Wednesday, Clauren said the northeast monsoon or amihan is expected to bring light to moderate rain in Batanes, Cagayan, Isabela, Quirino, and Aurora, adding the rest of the country would have generally fair weather with chances of isolated showers.
