The southwest monsoon, locally known as “habagat”, will bring heavy rains over Ilocos Region, Benguet, Central Luzon, Batanes, Calayan and Babuyan. Residents are advised against the possibility of flash floods and landslide.
Meanwhile, Metro Manila, Mindoro, CALABARZON, and the rest of Cordillera and Cagayan Valley will experience occasional rain showers.
The rest of the country will have good weather, coupled with partly cloudy skies and isolated rain showers.
A new low pressure area (LPA) was formed yesterday inside Philippine boundary. At 4 AM, the LPA was located at 870 kms. east northeast of Basco, Batanes. However, according to PAGASA Weather Forecaster Gener Quitlong, the LPA has a slim chance of developing into a tropical cyclone and will dissipate soon before leaving the Philippine boundary.
