The Surge of the SOUTHWEST MONSOON (HABAGAT) will continue to be enhanced by the weakening TYPHOON LEKIMA (HANNA) which already made landfall over Southeastern/Eastern China early this morning. The monsoon will bring partly cloudy to cloudy (overcast) skies with scattered to occasional light to moderate to at times heavy rain showers and thunderstorms across LUZON including BATANES AND BABUYAN ISLAND GROUP, METRO MANILA, MIMAROPA, KALAYAAN ISLAND GROUP, SULU ARCHIPELAGO, AND VISAYAS. The winds generated by this monsoon will be at moderate breeze to strong gale (30-75 km/hr), making the seas moderate to high (1.5 to 7.0 meters) and very risky/dangerous to all sea vessels.
Meanwhile, THE REST OF THE COUNTRY will be clear to mostly cloudy with chances of isolated 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.
