MANILA, Philippines – The southwest monsoon will affect the western parts of Northern Luzon and Central Luzon on Friday, June 22.

In a bulletin issued 4 pm on Thursday, June 21, state weather bureau PAGASA warned there will be light to moderate rain in the Ilocos Region, the Cordillera Administrative Region, Batanes, the Babuyan Group of Islands, Zambales, and Bataan. These areas should watch out for floods in low-lying areas.

The rest of the country, not affected by the southwest monsoon, will have isolated rainshowers or thunderstorms. (READ: FAST FACTS: Tropical cyclones, rainfall advisories)

On Thursday, flash floods had hit Metro Manila due to a thunderstorm, leading to heavier traffic.

Meanwhile, the low pressure area (LPA) off Bicol that PAGASA was earlier monitoring has already dissipated.

There is no potential tropical cyclone being monitored, so far.

PAGASA had declared the start of the rainy season last June 8. – Rappler.com
