MANILA, Philippines – Parts of the country will experience monsoon rains and scattered rain showers, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) said on Friday (August 2).

PAGASA said this is due to a low pressure area (LPA) in the eastern side of the Philippines and the southwest monsoon (habagat) prevailing over the western section of Luzon. The southwest monsoon is being enhanced by a storm in the southern part of China.

In a daily weather advisory posted on its website, the state weather bureau said that monsoon rains will be experienced in Pangasinan, Zambales and Bataan.

Metro Manila, Calabarzon, Mimaropa, Cordillera Administrative Region and the rest of Ilocos Region and Central Luzon will have cloudy skies with scattered rain showers and thunderstorms due to southwest monsoon.

Bicol Region, Visayas, Caraga and Northern Mindanao will also experience cloudy skies with scattered rain showers due to the trough of LPA.

PAGASA said in its weather advisory issued at 11 a.m. that it is closely monitoring if the LPA will develop into a tropical depression, which will be named “Hanna,” within 48 hours.

The state weather bureau advised local authorities to take precautionary measures as flashfloods and landslides are possible.

Some local government units have suspended classes in their respective areas due to heavy rains.
