MANILA, Philippines —”Habagat” or the southwest monsoon will continue to affect several areas in the country, including Metro Manila in Luzon on Tuesday, bringing scattered rain showers and thunderstorms, the state weather bureau said.
Cloudy skies and more consistent rain, should also be expected in Zambales, Palawan, and Mindoro provinces, according to the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa).
“Dito naman sa nalalabing bahagi ng Luzon, kasama ang Metro Manila, magiging maaliwalas pa rin ang ating panahon ngunit may posibilidad pa rin ng panandaliang buhos ng ulan at mga isolated thunderstorms,” Pagasa weather specialist Meno Mendoza in a morning weather bulletin.
(For the rest of Luzon, including Metro Manila, our weather will still be clear but there will still be occasional rainshowers and isolated thunderstorms.)
