‘Habagat’ to affect parts of the country

MANILA -- Rainy weather will persist in several parts of the country due to the southwest monsoon or the habagat despite the exit of Tropical Depression Goring, the weather bureau said Saturday.

"Goring", which weakened into a low pressure area (LPA), left the Philippine area of responsibility Friday night, according to the daily update on Facebook of the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA).

Despite the exit of Goring, Batanes, Calayan and the Babuyan Group of Islands, the Ilocos and Cordillera regions, Zambales, and Bataan will still experience monsoon rains.

Metro Manila, Calabarzon, Mimaropa, Cagayan Valley, and the rest of Central Luzon will have partly cloudy to cloudy skies, with rain showers and isolated thunderstorms brought about by the southwest monsoon.

The rest of the country will experience partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rain showers.

In Luzon, coastal waters will be moderate to rough but will be slight to moderate in the Visayas and Mindanao. (PNA)
