The southwest monsoon or habagat on Monday will dump rains over big areas of Luzon as a brewing storm or low-pressure region creeps nearer to the nation, said the state weather office.
Metro Manila, Ilocos, Cordillera, Cagayan Valley Region, and Central Luzon and Rizal Province will experience cloudy skies with isolated rain owing to habagat, weather forecaster PAGASA Raymond Ordinario said.
Rain-drenched areas since the weekend, particularly those in northern Luzon, should be looking for possible floods and landslides, he informed DZMM radio. The remainder of the nation will experience good weather, he said, which could be marred by localized thunderstorms.
The low-pressure region off the eastern shore of the country is probable to escalate into a storm called Marilyn, Ordinario said.
The prospective 13th storm this year from the country will enter the responsibility region of the Philippines on Wednesday, he said.
