PAGASA said Ruby may bring an estimated rainfall of 7.5 to 20 mm per hour (heavy to intense) within its 700-km diameter.
It added Ruby and the Northeast Monsoon will bring rough to very rough sea conditions over the seaboards of Northern Luzon, eastern seaboard of Central and Southern Luzon, over the seaboards of Visayas and over the northern and eastern seaboards of Mindanao.
"Fisherfolks and those using small seacraft are advised not to venture out over the said seaboards," it said.
It also warned those living near coastal areas to be alert against possible storm surges.
In its latest advisory, JTWC said "expect the system to shift slightly to the northwest into a small weakness in the subtropical ridge and continue to weaken as the system tracks along the Bicol peninsula."
