MANILA, Philippines — Fair weather with chances of rain showers will prevail in most parts of the country due to southwest monsoon or “habagat,” while the low-pressure area east of northeastern Mindanao, which is expected to become a tropical cyclone within 24 hours, continues to affect parts of Mindanao and Eastern Visayas, according to the state weather bureau.

Citing its 3 p.m. Tuesday bulletin, Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) said the LPA was last monitored 845 kilometers east of northeastern Mindanao and is currently inside the Intertropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ).


“Yung mga weather systems na ito ay nagdudulot ng maulap na papawirin at na may mga kalat-kalat na pagulan at pagkidlat pagkulog sa malaking bahagi ng Mindanao maging sa eastern section ng Visayas,” Pagasa weather specialist Loriedin dela Cruz – Galicia said in an afternoon forecast.

(These weather systems will bring overcast skies, scattered rain showers, and thunderstorms in Mindanao and eastern portions of Visayas.)

“Dito sa Metro Manila, pati sa natitirang bahagi ng Luzon sa Western and Central Visayas, kung mapapansin natin ay improved weather po ang ating nararanasan dahil bahagyang nabawasan ang mga pag-ulan na dulot ng habagat,” she added.

(Here in Metro Manila and the rest of Luzon, as well as Western and Central Visayas, we will experience improved weather or fewer rain showers due to habagat.)

Galicia likewise said that Pagasa hoisted a gale warning in the coastal waters of Zambales and Bataan due to the effects of habagat.

Meanwhile, below is the forecast temperature range in key cities or areas for Tuesday, according to Pagasa:


Metro Manila: 25 to 33 degrees Celsius
