Rains in parts of Luzon as ‘Lingling’ enhances southwest monsoon

MANILA � While it may have left the Philippine Area of Responsibility, typhoon 'Lingling' (formerly Liwayway) will continue to enhance the southwest monsoon, bringing rains over parts of Luzon on Saturday.

Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) weather specialist Gener Quitlong said 'Lingling', was spotted 1,335 km north northeast of extreme northern Luzon.

'Lingling' is expected to make landfall over South Korea after it left the PAR on Thursday.

Quitlong said two low-pressure areas were spotted in the western and Pacific coasts but are expected to dissipate.

Meanwhile, a severe tropical storm named 'Faxai' was also spotted 2,610 km east northeast of extreme northern Luzon at 3 a.m., but it is unlikely to affect the country, he added.

Cloudy skies with scattered rain showers and thunderstorms will prevail over the Ilocos Region, Cordillera Administrative Region, Cagayan Valley, Zambales, and Bataan.

Meanwhile, Metro Manila and the rest of the country will have partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rain showers.

The northern and western section of Central Luzon will have strong winds going southwest resulting in rough coastal waters of about 2.8 to 4 meters in height.

The Visayas and the rest of Luzon will have moderate winds going Southwest with moderate coastal waters of about 1.2 to 2.5 meters in height.

In the meantime, Mindanao will have light to moderate winds in the South to Southwest direction resulting in slight to moderate coastal waters of about 0.6 to 2.1 meters in height.

Temperatures in Metro Manila will be around 26 C to 32 C, Olongapo City / Clark Zone at about 24 C to 30 C, Lipa City at 26 C to 32 C, Metro Cebu at 27 C to 33 C, Metro Davao at 24 C to 32 C, and Zamboanga City at 25 C to 34 C. (PNA)
