According to Weather Philippines, Zoraida is expected to accelerate northwestward in the next 24 hours, turning west-northwestward in 48 hours.

“On the forecast track, the core of Zoraida will make landfall along the border of Surigao del Sur and Davao Oriental, passing across Agusan del Sur, Bukidnon and Misamis Oriental on Tuesday afternoon through evening and will traverse the Mindanao Sea early Wednesday morning on its way to the Sulu Sea,” it said.
