SOUTHWEST MONSOON (HABAGAT) will continue to bring partly cloudy to cloudy (overcast) skies with scattered to occasional rain showers and thunderstorms across the WESTERN SECTIONS OF CENTRAL LUZON, MINDORO, PALAWAN, and KALAYAAN ISLAND GROUP. Winds of 30 to 55 kph (fresh breeze to near-gale) will blow across these areas, making the seas moderate to very rough (2.0 to 5.5 meters) and dangerous to small and medium-type sized sea vessels.
MONSOON TROUGH will bring partly cloudy to cloudy (overcast) skies with isolated to scattered rain showers and thunderstorms across NORTHERN AND CENTRAL LUZON, BICOL REGION, EASTERN VISAYAS, AND NORTHEASTERN MINDANAO. Meanwhile, at 8:00 AM today, the center of LPA 94W was located about 832 km East of Surigao City (9.7N 133.1E), and the potential of becoming a significant tropical cyclone within the next 24 hours remains LOW (<35% chance).
SOUTHWESTERLIES (Southwesterly Surface Windflow) will bring mostly cloudy to cloudy (overcast) skies with scattered to osccasional rain showers and thunderstorms across WESTERN VISAYAS, SULU ARCHIPELAGO, and ZAMBOANGA PENINSULA.
