Tropical Cyclone Wind Signal No. 2 is still raised over Itbayat while Signal No. 1 is hoisted over Babuyan, Calayan, and Panuitan Islands and the rest of Batanes.

Batanes will experience heavy to intense with at times torrential rains in the next 24 hours.

Babuyan Islands, meanwhile, may have moderate to heavy with at times intense rains.

Typhoon Kiko will likewise enhance the southwest monsoon or habagat which brings monsoon rains over Ilocos Region, Cordillera Administrative Region, Zambales, and Bataan.

The habagat will also cause cloudy skies with scattered rain showers and thunderstorms over Metro Manila, Laguna, Rizal, and the rest of Cagayan Valley and Central Luzon.

Moreover, the rest of the country will have partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rain showers and thunderstorms due to the habagat and localized thunderstorms.

Kiko is forecast to leave the Philippine area of responsibility Sunday afternoon or evening.
