The effect of southwest monsoon or habagat will only be felt over the extreme part of Northern Luzon this Tuesday but the weather bureau still warned of possible flash floods or landslides in the event of sudden rains due to thunderstorms in the afternoon or evening throughout the country.
The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) said habagat will bring cloudy skies with scattered rain showers and thunderstorms over Batanes, Babuyan group of islands, and Palawan.
Meanwhile, Metro Manila and the rest of the country will have partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rain showers due to localized thunderstorms.
PAGASA warned that rains, especially during severe thunderstorms, could trigger possible flash floods or landslides over low-lying and mountainous areas in the entire archipelago.
It has not issued a gale warning thus fisherfolk and seafarers are safe to sail.
Moderate to rough seas will prevail over the western part of Luzon, while slight to moderate seas will prevail over the rest of the country.
So far, PAGASA does not see the formation or entry of a tropical cyclone inside the country in the next few days.
