Habagat to induce rains in Luzon

/ 09:03 AM August 20, 2018

The southwest monsoon or habagat will continue to induce rains in most parts of Luzon, the state weather bureau said Monday.

Typhoon Soulik, which was last spotted 1,670 kilometers east northeast of extreme Northern Luzon, will enhance the southwest monsoon, but it will not enter the Philippine Area of Responsibility, the Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration said.


Ilocos Region, Cordillera Administrative Region, Batanes, Babuyan Group of Islands, Zambales, and Bataan will experience monsoon rains.

Metro Manila and the rest of Central Luzon, Calabarzon, Mindoro provinces and Northern Palawan, will have cloudy skies with scattered rains and thunderstorms.

Partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rains are seen over the rest of the country.
