Meanwhile, the southwest monsoon is expected to bring more rain to Metro Manila, and the Southern Luzon and Visayan regions and may trigger flashfloods and landslides.

Light to moderate rains and thunderstorms will be experienced over the Visayas. Partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated thunderstorms will prevail over Mindanao.
