Southwest monsoon to bring cloudy skies with intermittent rains over Luzon, Visayas

Marje Pelayo   •   September 18, 2019

MANILA, Philippines – Tropical depression ‘Nimfa’ maintains strength while moving almost stationary, according to state weather service PAGASA.

At 3:00 AM on Wednesday (September 18), the center of the weather system was located at 670 km East of Basco, Batanes with maximum sustained winds of 55 kph near the center and gustiness of up to 70 kph.

Meanwhile, PAGASA is also monitoring a low pressure area (LPA) which was observed in the vicinity San Jose, Tarlac.

According to PAGASA, monsoon rains ranging from frequent light to moderate with occasional heavy rain showers will prevail over Central Luzon, Batangas, Cavite, Occidental Mindoro, and northern portions of Palawan including Calamian and Cuyo Islands throughout Wednesday due to the combined effects of the southwest monsoon (habagat) and the LPA.

Likewise, habagat will bring cloudy skies with scattered rainshowers and thunderstorms over Metro Manila, Bicol Region, Western Visayas, CALABARZON and the rest of MIMAROPA.

The trough of the tropical depression will also bring cloudy skies with scattered rainshowers and thunderstorms over Cagayan Valley, Cordillera Administrative Region, and Ilocos Region.

Meanwhile, partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rainshowers will be experienced in Mindanao and the rest of Visayas due to localized thunderstorms.

 Residents of the aforementioned areas are advised to take precautionary measures for possible flashfloods and landslides.

Sea travels is discouraged especially for small sea vessels over the northern and eastern seaboards of Northern Luzon due to potentially rough to very rough sea conditions.

Meanwhile, most of the other seaboards of the country will remain moderate to rough.

As of this writing, there is no Tropical Cyclone Wind Signal (TCWS) raised in any parts of the country, according to PAGASA.
