The tropical cyclone that will be named Odette once it enters the Philippines maintained its strength as it moved closer to landfall in the southeast portion of the country later in the week, PAGASA said Monday.

Odette will reach peak intensity of 150 kph winds by Wednesday, before it hits land in the vicinity of Caraga or Eastern Visayas by the afternoon or evening of Thursday, PAGASA said.

Up to Typhoon Wind Signal No. 3 could be raised, PAGASA said, lower than its previous forecast of Signal No. 4 in its Sunday weather bulletin.

At 10 a.m., the storm was located 1,760 km east of Mindanao, PAGASA said. It could enter the Philippine Area of Responsibility by Tuesday.
