SOUTHWEST MONSOON (HABAGAT) starts to wane down as LEKIMA (HANNA) weakens into a Tropical Storm (TS) while moving north of Shanghai, but now being enhanced by the large TROPICAL STORM KROSA located south of Iwo To. This monsoon will still bring partly cloudy to cloudy (overcast) skies with scattered to occasional light to moderate to at times heavy rain showers and thunderstorms across EXTREME NORTHERN, WESTERN AND CENTRAL LUZON, METRO MANILA, CALABARZON, PALAWAN, KALAYAAN ISLAND GROUP, AND MINDORO. The winds will be at moderate breeze to gale force (30-65 km/hr), making the seas moderate to high (1.5 to 5.5 meters) and very risky/dangerous to all sea vessels.
Meanwhile, SOUTHWESTERLIES (Southwesterly Surface Windflow) will bring clear to mostly cloudy skies with breezy conditions and some possible isolated rain showers or thunderstorms across ROMBLON, MARINDUQUE, BICOL REGION, VISAYAS, SULU ARCHIPELAGO, AND WESTERN MINDANAO.
THE REST OF THE COUNTRY will remain clear to mostly cloudy skies 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.
