The surge of the SOUTHWEST MONSOON (HABAGAT) enhanced by LPAs 96W & 93W – will continue to affect MIMAROPA, WESTERN VISAYAS, SULU ARCHIPELAGO, KALAYAAN ISLAND GROUP, AND ZAMBOANGA PENINSULA. Mostly cloudy to cloudy (overcast) skies with isolated, scattered to occasional rain showers and thunderstorms will be expected. The winds will be fresh breeze to near-gale (35 to 60 km/hr), making the seas moderate to very rough (2.0 to 5.5 meters) and dangerous to small and medium sea vessels.
Meanwhile, Tropical Disturbances (LPA) 96W and 93W has moved NW-ward and Northward respectively across the West and Eastern Philippine Seas over the past 24 hours and both of them are very near the western and eastern PAR-lines. These weather systems are not a threat to the landmass of the Philippines and their forecast tracks are moving away from the country.
The REST OF THE PHILIPPINES will have partly to mostly cloudy skies with isolated to scattered rain showers and thunderstorms in some areas especially in the afternoon or evening.
**Residents are advised to be on alert for POSSIBLE FLASHFLOODS, LANDSLIDES OR LIGHTNING STRIKES during the occurrence of Severe Thunderstorms.
Important note: In the infrared (IR) satellite image shown above: BLUE areas indicate Clear Skies with a Few Clouds; GREEN = Partly to Mostly Cloudy Skies; YELLOW = Mostly Cloudy to Hazy Skies with Possible Slight-to-Moderate Rainfall; and RED = Thunderstorms with Moderate to Heavy to sometimes Extreme Rainfall.
