The southwest monsoon or “habagat” enhanced by typhoon “In-fa” (formerly “Fabian”) may continue to bring rains over most of Luzon in the next 24 hours, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) said on Sunday morning, July 25.

Scattered to widespread moderate to at times heavy rains may prevail over Metro Manila, Ilocos Norte, Ilocos Sur, La Union, Pangasinan, Abra, Benguet, Zambales, Bataan, Pampanga, Bulacan, Cavite, Batangas, Occidental Mindoro, and Calamian Islands.

Scattered light to moderate rains with at times heavy rains may also affect Batanes, Cagayan, Quirino, Isabela, Nueva Vizcaya, Apayao, Ifugao, Kalinga, Mountain Province, Tarlac, Nueva Ecija, Aurora, Laguna, Rizal, Quezon, Oriental Mindoro, Marinduque, Romblon, and the rest of Palawan.

Meanwhile, the rest of the country will have generally fair weather conditions due to partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rain showers or thunderstorms.

PAGASA warned against possible flash floods or rain-induced landslides during heavy or prolonged rainfall, particularly in areas that are highly susceptible to these hazards.

No gale warning is in place on Sunday but moderate to rough sea conditions may prevail over the coastal waters of Luzon and Visayas.

Meanwhile, slight to moderate sea conditions may prevail across the coastal waters of Mindanao.

While no gale warning is in effect, PAGASA still advised seafarers and fisherfolk to remain alert as sea conditions, especially over the western seaboard of Luzon may become rough during severe offshore thunderstorms.
