Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, November 1) — Tropical Storm Siony slightly weakened but remained a tropical storm as it traverses the Philippine Sea, state weather bureau PAGASA said.

In its 11 p.m. bulletin, PAGASA said it last spotted Siony 990 kilometers east of Northern Luzon. It decreased its maximum sustained winds to 65 kilometers per hour (kph) and gusts to 80 kph, from 75 kph maximum sustained winds and gustiness of up to 90 kph in PAGASA's previous bulletin on the tropical storm.

PAGASA said Siony is less likely to affect any portion of the country over the next two to three days. State weather forecasters added Siony may intensify into a severe tropical storm when it becomes stationary in the Philippine Sea on Tuesday.

Tropical storm "Siony" (international name: Atsani) entered the country's monitoring area at 8 a.m. on Sunday.

The state-run weather bureau advised the public to continue monitoring updates on the said weather system.

The tropical storm joins typhoon "Rolly" inside PAR. Rolly has made four landfalls as of Sunday evening.
