The southwest monsoon or “habagat”, enhanced by a low pressure area and tropical storm Son-Tinh (Henry), would continue to dump light to heavy rains in most parts of the country, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) said Wednesday.
In its forecast issued at 4 a.m., PAGASA said the low pressure area was last observed at 540 kilometers east of Aparri, Cagayan.
Light to moderate with occasional heavy rainsa would affect Metro Manila, and the regions of Ilocos, Cordillera, Cagayan Valley, Central Luzon, Calabarzon, Mimaropa, Bicol & the Visayas.
The center of TS Son-Tinh was last seen at 1,115 kms west of extreme northern Luzon, with maximum sustained winds of 80 kph and gusts of 95 kph.
As of 5 a.m., PAGASA issued an orange rainfall warning over the provinces of Bataan and Zambales, which means that flooding in these areas is threatening. Yellow rainfall warning was raised over Metro Manila, Cavite, and Rizal as flooding is possible in low-lying areas.
Light to moderate with occasional heavy rains are also affecting Laguna, Batangas, Tarlac, Bulacan, Pampanga, Nueva Ecija and Quezon which may persist within three hours. (PNA)
