The weather is seen to improve over the next few days in Metro Manila including Southern Luzon and Western Visayas, but monsoon rains will persist in Northern and Central Luzon.

Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) weather specialist, Aldczar Aurelio, said Metro Manila, Southern Luzon and Western Visayas will experience improving weather with “less intense” rains as early as today.

However, typhoon Domeng (international name “Maliksi”) will continue to enhance the southwest monsoon or habagat even though it has already left the Philippine area of responsibility last Sunday.

Yesterday, heavy rains prompted the midday suspension of work in the executive branch and classes in all levels in Metro Manila.

Executive Secretary Salvador Medialdea issued Memorandum Circular (MC) 46 suspending work in the executive department and classes in all levels starting 3 p.m. Monday. (With a report from Argyll Cyrus B. Geducos)
