Based on all available data, the LPA outside Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) has already developed into a tropical depression and could turn into a Typhoon. Filipinos in Eastern Visayas and Mindanao might experience rains this Holy Week due to the typhoon, which will be named Caloy, according to the weather bureau.

Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) senior weather forecaster Rene Paciente told media that the typhoon will not make any landfall in any parts of the Philippines but its tail end could affect Eastern Visayas and Mindanao. The weather disturbance may trigger rough to very rough seas over the eastern seaboards of the Visayas this holy week, Paciente added.

He continued, "The typhoon will re-curve to north once it enters the Philippine Area of responsibility his Monday or Tuesday. Based on latest available data, it might hit some parts of southern Japan."

There will be no disturbance for the rest of the country and will experience a sunny weather including Metro Manila. But there will be possible occurrence of thunderstorms. Paciente also told media that dry season in the country or summer will officially begin in the first week of April.

For the past four years, Philippines had been hit by a tropical cyclone during Holy Week.
