Metro Manila and the rest of the country will experience partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rain showers due to localized thunderstorms.

Meanwhile, PAGASA continues to monitor a weather disturbance outside the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR).

PAGASA weather forecaster Chris Perez said as of 3 a.m., severe tropical storm "Yutu" was spotted 2,925 kilometers east of Visayas.

Moving west northwest at 15 kph, Yutu is not expected to enter PAR or directly affect the country in the next two to three days.
