The state weather bureau on Tuesday said a southwest monsoon is affecting Luzon and Visayas as a tropical depression outside the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) nears the Philippines.

In its 4:00 p.m. advisory, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) said the tropical depression was last spotted 1,570 kilometers east of extreme Norther Luzon.

Pagasa warned of occasional rains in Metro Manila, Central Luzon, CALABARZON, MIMAROPA and Western Visayas due to the southwest monsoon.
