Habagat to dampen parts of Luzon

MANILA—Monsoon rains will persist over parts of Luzon Saturday, state weather bureau PAGASA said.

Weather specialist Gener Quitlong said typhoon Liwayway (international name Lingling) continues to enhance the southwest monsoon or habagat.

The typhoon left the Philippine area of responsibility Thursday and is expected to hit land over Korea.

Meanwhile, 2 shallow low-pressure areas (LPAs) were monitored off the country's western and Pacific coasts.

The weather disturbances are likely to dissipate, Quitlong said.

Tropical storm Faxai (international name) spotted off the West Pacific is also unlikely to affect the country, he added.

Ilocos Region, Cordillera Administrative Region, Cagayan Valley, Zambales, and Bataan will experience cloudy skies with scattered rain showers and thunderstorms due to the enhanced habagat.

Localized thunderstorms will bring partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rain showers over Metro Manila and the rest of the country.
