The SOUTHWEST MONSOON (HABAGAT) as enhanced by the landfalling Tropical Disturbance (LPA) 95W off Southern China, will continue to affect NORTHERN AND CENTRAL LUZON including BATANES AND BABUYAN GROUP OF ISLANDS. Partly cloudy to cloudy (overcast) skies with scattered light to moderate to at times heavy rain showers and thunderstorms will be expected, becoming frequent along the WESTERN SECTIONS of the above areas. The winds will remain fresh to Gale Force (35 to 55 km/hr), making the seas moderate to very rough/high seas (2.0 to 5.5 meters) and dangerous to small and medium sea vessels.
Meanwhile, the REST OF THE PHILIPPINES will have clear 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.
