MANILA, Philippines—Expect cloudy skies and some sunshine over Metro Manila and most parts of the country in the next few days following the departure of Typhoon Labuyo Monday night, the state weather bureau said on Tuesday.

But rains and thunderstorms may persist in the western section of Northern Luzon, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) said.

The southwest monsoon, or “hangin-habagat,” continues to affect the whole of Luzon, bringing cloudiness and light to moderate rainfall, the weather bureau said.

Metro Manila and most parts of the country will see improving weather in the next few days, Pagasa forecaster Connie Dadivas said.

According to Pagasa’s 24-hour weather outlook, the regions of Ilocos and Cordillera and the provinces of Zambales, Bataan, Mindoro, Marinduque and Romblon will be cloudy with moderate to occasionally heavy rain showers and thunderstorms.

The bureau warned that these might trigger flash floods and landslides.

“The rest of the country will experience cloudy skies with light to moderate rain showers and thunderstorms,” Pagasa said.

Moderate to strong winds blowing from the southwest will prevail over Luzon and Visayas and the coastal waters along these areas will be moderate to rough, it said.

Elsewhere, winds will be light to moderate coming from the southwest with slight to moderate seas, Pagasa said.
