MANILA - Heavy rain and payday caused "hellish" traffic jams across Metro Manila on Friday the 13th.

State weather bureau PAGASA said weather condition will improve by Saturday morning, as tropical storm "Odette" is expected to leave the Philippine Area of Responsibility as early as Friday night.

But light to moderate rains with thunderstorms must still be expected over the metro.

The Metropolitan Manila Development Authority has warned motorists to avoid traversing EDSA amid mall sales in Mandaluyong City.
