Monsoon rains will continue over Zambales, Bataan, Cavite, Batangas, Mindoro, Northern Palawan, and Romblon.


Occasional rains are expected over Metro Manila, Western Visayas, and the rest of Central Luzon and southern Luzon until Wednesday.

Gardo was last spotted 635 kilometers northeast of Basco, Batanes, blowing winds of 170 kilometers per hour (kph) near the center and gusts of up to 210 kph, the Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) said.
