MANILA, Philippines — Cloudy skies and scattered rain showers will be experienced in most parts of Luzon, including Metro Manila, as “habagat” (southwest monsoon) continues to affect most of the country, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) said Tuesday.

“Dahil pa rin nga po sa epekto ng ating habagat o southwest monsoon, patuloy pa rin pong mararanasan ang maulap na kalangitan, na may kalat kalat na pag ulan at pagkidlat at pagkulob dito sa may Metro Manila,” said Pagasa weather specialist Meno Mendoza.


(Due to the effect of our habagat or southwest monsoon, we will continue to experience cloudy skies, with scattered rain and lightning and overcast here in Metro Manila.)


The same weather, according to Mendoza, will prevail throughout Visayas.

On the other hand, Mindanao will have fair weather but will still have the possibility of light scattered rain showers generated by localized thunderstorms.

Meanwhile, a tropical depression has been spotted 2,460 kilometers east of Southern Luzon but is not expected to enter the Philippine Area of Responsibility.

Forecast temperature range in key cities/areas:

Metro Manila: 26 to 30 degrees Celsius
Baguio City: 16 to 23 degrees Celsius
Laoag City:  25 to 32 degrees Celsius
Tuguegarao: 25 to 38 degrees Celsius
Legazpi City: 25 to 32 degrees Celsius
Puerto Princesa City: 26 to 31 degrees Celsius
Tagaytay: 23 to 29 degrees Celsius
Kalayaan Islands: 27 to 31 degrees Celsius
Iloilo City: 25 to 31 degrees Celsius
Cebu: 26 to 32 degrees Celsius
Tacloban City: 26 to 32 degrees Celsius
Cagayan De Oro City: 24 to 33 degrees Celsius
Zamboanga City: 24 to 33 degrees Celsius
Davao City: 26 to 33 degrees Celsius

No gale warning has also been raised in the country’s coasts.

“Kaya’t ligtas pa ring makakapalaot saan mang baybaying dagat ng ating bansa (so it is still safe to sail anywhere along the coast of our country),” said Mendoza.
