Southwest Monsoon, LPA trough to bring rain showers over parts of PH

The Southwest Monsoon (Habagat) and the trough or extension of a low pressure area (LPA) continue to affect the country on Monday and will bring rain showers over several areas, PAGASA said in its forecast.

Mimaropa, Western Visayas, Central Visayas, Zambales, Bataan, Cavite, and Batangas will have cloudy skies with scattered rain showers and thunderstorms due to the monsoon. Moderate to at times heavy rains may possibly lead to flash floods or landslides.

Eastern Visayas and Masbate may expect cloudy skies with scattered rain showers and thunderstorms due to the trough of the LPA. Flash floods or landslides may result due to moderate to at times heavy rains.

Meanwhile, Metro Manila and the rest of the country will have partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rain showers or thunderstorms due to localized thunderstorms. During severe thunderstorms, flash floods or landslides may occur.

Coastal waters will be slight to moderate throughout the country.
