Monsoon rains prevailing across PH – PAGASA

Marje Pelayo   •   June 15, 2021

MANILA, Philippines —  State weather agency PAGASA forecasts prevailing rains over Luzon due to the effects of the southwest monsoon or habagat.

As of Tuesday (June 15), cloudy skies with scattered rain showers and thunderstorms will continue to affect the entire Ilocos Region.

This may cause flash floods and landslides in areas susceptible to these hazards due to moderate to at times heavy rains.

Meanwhile, the combined effects of habagat and localized thunderstorms continue to bring partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rain showers or thunderstorms in Metro Manila and the rest of the country.

These conditions are expected to cause possible flash floods or landslides due to severe thunderstorms thus, residents are advised to take precautionary measures against these hazards.

PAGASA has not seen any brewing storm or weather disturbance to date, though rains will prevail due to the onset of the rainy season.
