Pagasa: Isolated rains, cloudy skies on Tuesday
MANILA, Philippines – Cloudy skies and scattered rains showers are expected in parts of Luzon on Tuesday due to the southwest monsoon or “habagat”, the weather bureau said.

Meanwhile, monsoon rains are expected in the Cordillera Administrative Region and Central Luzon.
The rest of the country will have partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rain showers due to localized thunderstorms, Pagasa said.
The weather bureau warned of possible flash floods or landslides in affected areas.
Wind speed in Luzon is expected to be moderate to strong coming from the southwest, with moderate to rough coastal waters.
