MANILA Tropical storm Liwayway will bring scattered rain showers and thunderstorms over Cagayan Valley and Aurora, the weather bureau said on Monday afternoon.
Liwayway was last seen some 400 kilometers east northeast of Baler, Aurora, heading north northwest at 30 kilometers per hour (kph).
It has a maximum sustained winds of 65 kph near the center, and gustiness of up to 80 kph.
Meanwhile, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) said the southwest monsoon is affecting southern Luzon, Visayas, and the western part of northern and central Luzon.
This would cause scattered rain showers and thunderstorms over Metro Manila, Calabarzon, Mimaropa, Bicol Region, western and eastern Visayas, Zamboanga Peninsula, the rest of central Luzon, Sulu, Tawi-tawi, and Basilan.
The rest of the country will have isolated rain showers caused by localized thunderstorms.
Moderate to strong winds will blow over northern, central and southern Luzon.
Coastal waters along these areas will be moderate to rough.
Elsewhere, winds will be light to moderate within slight to moderate seas, PAGASA said. (PNA)
