The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) said on Friday, August 6, that the four weather disturbances outside the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) will unlikely enter the country.
Still, rains will continue because these weather disturbances will influence the southwest monsoon (habagat), PAGASA forecaster Aldczar Aurelio reported. “They are also likely to continue enhancing the southwest monsoon in the next days,” he added.
Moreover, according to the forecast for the Ilocos Region, Zambales, Bataan, Benguet, Batanes and the Babuyan Islands, these areas will experience scattered rain showers and thunderstorms, as well as may experience flash floods or landslides during moderate to at times heavy rains.
On the other hand, isolated rain showers or thunderstorms will prevail over Metro Manila and the rest of the country.
PAGASA said flash floods or landslides are still possible during severe thunderstorms.
Luzon and the Visayas will continue to experience moderate to strong winds and moderate to rough seas, while Mindanao will have light to moderate winds with slight to moderate seas.
