Parts of Luzon, including Metro Manila, may experience cloudy skies with light to moderate rain due to Tropical Storm “Florita” (international name: Prapiroon) and the southwest monsoon, the weather bureau said on Sunday.
The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) said as of 3 a.m., Florita was 700 kilometers east-northeast of Basco, Batanes, packing maximum winds of 85 kilometers per hour near the center and gustiness of up to 105 kph.
