MANILA, Philippines — The southwest monsoon or habagat will continue to bring rains to Southern Luzon provinces, at least in the next three days.

The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) also spotted an active low-pressure area 990 kilometers east of northeastern Mindanao yesterday morning, although it said this weather disturbance is unlikely to develop into a typhoon.

This low-pressure area, it added, is still far from the Philippine area of responsibility and is not yet affecting the country.

Even given this, PAGASA said the southwest monsoon would bring more rain to the Mimaropa region, Batangas and Quezon provinces, as well as the Bicol region. These areas are forecast to experience cloudy skies with scattered rains and thunderstorms.

Metro Manila will have fair weather along with the rest of Luzon but with chances of isolated rains mostly in afternoon or evening with weather further improving by Tuesday.

In its three-day weather forecast, PAGASA said Baguio City is also expected to have rainy weather on Tuesday but this will improve by Wednesday.

Both the Visayas and Mindanao will have fair or generally good weather in the next three days with chances of isolated rains.
