A SURFACE TROUGH continues to persist across WESTERN LUZON, SOUTHERN TAGALOG, VISAYAS and NORTHERN MINDANAO bringing partly to mostly cloudy periods and some light scattering of rain showers and thunderstorms.
In the meantime, the enhanced SOUTHWEST MONSOON continues to affect the WESTERN SECTIONS of the KALAYAAN ISLAND GROUP (KIG) over the WEST PHILIPPINE SEA with some breezy periods with passing ”on-and-off” light rains and thunderstorms in the area.
The REST OF THE PHILIPPINES will have some cloud cover and the possibility of isolated rain showers or thunderstorms developing later.
**Residents are advised to be on alert for POSSIBLE FLASHFLOODS, LANDSLIDES OR LIGHTNING STRIKES during the occurrence of Severe Thunderstorms.
