Monsoon rains continue to drench Luzon, Western Visayas; ‘Egay’ to weaken into LPA

Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, July 1) — You can expect rainy weather today, especially those living in Luzon and Western Visayas, weather officials said, due to the southwest monsoon or habagat. Tropical depression 'Egay' which will become weaker in the next 24 hours, is pulling up the southwest monsoon that's bringing more rains.

Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) said Metro Manila, Ilocos Region, Cordillera Region, Central Luzon, CALABARZON, MIMAROPA, Bicol Region, Antique, Aklan and western Iloilo will experience low to moderate and at times heavy rains on Monday. The rest of Luzon and Western Visayas will have cloudy skies and scattered rains.

Tropical cyclone warning signal number one is still raised over Batanes and the Babuyan Group of Islands which means these areas will experience rains and strong winds, PAGASA said. Winds range from 30 to 60 kilometers per hour (kph) in areas under signal number one.

Meanwhile, tropical depression “Egay” will weaken into an LPA on Monday and will exit the country in the next 24 to 48 hours. “Egay” was last seen 165 kilometers east northeast of Aparri, Cagayan carrying maximum center winds at 45 kilometers per hour (kph) and gusts at 60 kph. It is currently moving northwest at 35 kph.

Weather officials also noted that an LPA that is currently outside of the country may develop into a tropical depression. However, it is not expected to enter Philippine territory. The LPA was last spotted 575 kilometers west of northern Luzon.
