Luis was last located 1,060 kilometers east of extreme Northern Luzon, packing maximum sustained winds of 55 kilometers per hour (kph) and gustiness of up to 70 kph, according to Pagasa.

The tropical depression is not likely to directly affect the weather condition in the country, the state weather bureau noted. But the southwest monsoon – locally termed “habagat” – as well as a low pressure area approaching Mindanao will bring about rain over the western section of Southern Luzon and the eastern sections of Visayas and Mindanao, it also said.
