Occasional rains prevail over Metro Manila, the rest of Luzon, W. Visayas – PAGASA

Marje Pelayo   •   July 29, 2021

MANILA, Philippines – The southwest monsoon (Habagat) remains the prevailing weather system in the country today, according to the latest forecast from the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA).

This will bring Metro Manila and the rest of Luzon as well as Western Visayas occasional rains throughout the day with a possibility of flooding and rain-induced landslides during moderate to at times heavy rains especially in low-lying areas.

Meanwhile, monsoon rains will be experienced in the areas of Ilocos Region, Benguet, Zambales, Bataan, Tarlac, Pampanga, and Occidental Mindoro due to the impact of Habagat.

Possible flooding and rain-induced landslides are the potential hazards that might be triggered during scattered to widespread moderate to at times heavy rains.

Similarly due to habagat, the rest of the country will have partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rainshowers or thunderstorms which could cause flash floods or landslides during severe thunderstorms.

PAGASA advises the public to take precautionary measures under these conditions and monitor updates of the weather systems through the agency’s websites and other social media platforms.
