SOUTHWEST MONSOON (HABAGAT) will continue to bring mostly cloudy to cloudy (overcast) skies with scattered to occasional rain showers and thunderstorms across the WESTERN SECTIONS OF CENTRAL AND SOUTHERN LUZON, METRO MANILA, 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 mostly cloudy to cloudy (overcast) skies with isolated to scattered rain showers and thunderstorms across THE REST OF LUZON. Meanwhile, at 11:00 AM today, the center of Active LPA 92W was located about 867 km East of Basco, Batanes (20.1N 130.3E), and the potential of becoming a significant tropical cyclone within the next 24 hours remains HIGH (>65% chance).
SOUTHWESTERLIES (Southwesterly Surface Windflow) will bring mostly cloudy to cloudy (overcast) skies with scattered to occasional rain showers and thunderstorms across WESTERN AND CENTRAL VISAYAS, BICOL REGION, SULU ARCHIPELAGO, AND WESTERN MINDANAO.
The REST OF THE PHILIPPINES will have partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated to scattered rain showers and thunderstorms in some areas especially in the afternoon or evening.
