SOUTHERLIES (Southerly Surface Windflow) continues to bring mostly cloudy to cloudy (overcast) with isolated to scattered rain showers and thunderstorms across EXTREME NORTHERN LUZON, becoming more frequent over BATANES AND BABUYAN GROUP OF ISLANDS.
Well to the East of the country, a weak circulation associated with TROPICAL DISTURBANCE 96W (LPA) was estimated to be near 791 km ESE of Guiuan, Eastern Samar. This system has a LOW (<35%) CHANCE of developing into a significant tropical cyclone within the next 24 hours.
Further South, WESTERLIES (Westerly Surface Windflow) is bringing some cloud cover and local thunderstorms across the WESTERN, SOUTHERN and EASTERN section of MINDANAO.
Meanwhile, the REST OF THE PHILIPPINES will have clear to partly to mostly cloudy skies with isolated to scattered rain showers and thunderstorms developing in places.
**Residents are advised to be on alert for POSSIBLE FLASHFLOODS, LANDSLIDES OR LIGHTNING STRIKES during the occurrence of Severe Thunderstorms.
