The MONSOON TROUGH now connects simultaneously with LPA 96W in the vicinity of the WEST PHILIPPINE SEA and LPA 98W to the EAST of NORTHERN LUZON bringing partly to mostly cloudy periods with light to at times moderate rains and thunderstorms. The SOUTHWEST MONSOON is also being initialized by LPA 96W bringing blustery conditions over the KALAYAAN ISLAND GROUP. The seas will become moderate to rough at times which may pose danger to small to medium-size sea crafts.
The REST OF THE PHILIPPINES will have some cloud cover and the possibility of isolated rain showers or thunderstorms developing later.
