Based on PAGASA issued Weather Advisory No. 24, the Southwest Monsoon will bring moderate to heavy with at times intense rains over Ilocos Region, Benguet, Zambales, Bataan, and Occidental Mindoro. Meanwhile, light to moderate with at times heavy rains will prevail over Metro Manila, CALABARZON, the rest of Central Luzon, Batanes, Babuyan Islands, Apayao, Abra, and northern Palawan including Kalayaan and Calamian Islands. Moreover, occasional gusty winds will be experienced over these areas especially in the coastal and upland localities.
