MANILA -- The entire archipelago may experience occasional heavy rains on Wednesday even as "Isang" (international name Hato) has exited the country, state weather agency Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) said.
The southwest monsoon, currently affecting Luzon, will bring light to moderate rains and possible occasional heavy rains, gusty winds and lightning in Ilocos, Zambales, Bataan, Cavite, Batangas, Mindoro and Palawan, PAGASA added.
Metro Manila and the rest of the country will have partly cloudy to cloudy skies, isolated light to occasionally heavy rains, gusty winds and lightning. Moderate to strong winds will blow from southwest over Luzon and western Visayas, and from south over the rest of the archipelago.
PAGASA said severe tropical storm "Isang" already exited the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) Tuesday.
As of 4 a.m. Wednesday, "Isang" was tracked 635 km west of Basco, Batanes, outside PAR.
"Isang" has a maximum sustained winds of 118 kph, and is forecast to move west northwest at 25 km/hr, according to PAGASA.
The country's coastal waters will be moderate to rough, PAGASA said.
