The southwest monsoon triggered by Tropical Storm Egay (international name: Linfa) has been bringing the rains in Metro Manila and nearby provinces despite the absence of a storm signal.

“Intermittent heavy rains are likely to continue in Metro Manila and nearby provinces until Egay exits the country,” Elvie Enriquez, weather forecaster of the Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) said by phone Monday.

Pagasa said earlier that Egay has slightly weakened as it slowly moved northward midday Monday.

Public storm warning Signal No. 2 was hoisted in  Ilocos Norte, Ilocos Sur and Abra, while Signal No. 1 was raised over Batanes, Calayan and Babuyan group of Islands, Northwest of Cagayan, Apayao, Kalinga, Mt. Province, La Union and Benguet.

Enriquez said rains will continue to be experienced especially on the western part of the Philippines.

Egay is expected to exit the Philippine area of responsibility by Thursday evening.

Another storm outside PAR, with international name Chan-Hom, is expected to pass close to the PAR boundary by Tuesday or Wednesday. It is not expected to make a landfall.

Egay was last tracked 155 kilometers northwest of Laoag City in Ilocos Norte as of Monday noon.

It packed maximum sustained winds of 75 kilometers per hour near the centers and gusts of up to 90 kph.

Fishermen and operators of small vessels were warned to avoid over the seaboards of Luzon. AU
