Rain will persist in Metro Manila and parts of Luzon on Monday due to storm-enhanced southwest monsoon.

Even as two tropical storms were spotted outside the Philippine area of responsibility, both still boost the southwest monsoon in Luzon, the Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) noted.


Tropical Storm Yagi (formerly Karding) was last spotted 960 kilometers north of extreme Northern Luzon.

Tropical Storm Leepi was last observed 1,965 kilometers east northeast extreme Northern Luzon.


Metro Manila, Ilocos Region, Cordillera Administrative Region, Central Luzon, CALABARZON, and  Mindoro provinces will continue to experience monsoon rains, according to Pagasa.

The rest of  Luzon will have occasional rains, while Visayas and Mindanao will have partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rainshowers or thunderstorms.

A yellow rainfall warning was also issued in Metro Manila and nearby provinces at 6 a.m. Monday.

Pagasa said heavy rains may be expected over Batangas, Metro Manila, Cavite, Bulacan, Zambales and Bataan. It cautioned residents against possible flooding and landslides in these areas.    /kga
