THE SOUTHWEST monsoon will continue to bring moderate to heavy downpours in Luzon and the Western Visayas Region on Friday as typhoon Hanna (international name: Lekima) heads out of the Philippine area. Weather bureau PAGASA, in its 5 p.m. Thursday update, said the “outer rainbands” of Hanna will also continue to bring moderate to heavy rains on Friday over Batanes and the Babuyan Group of Islands. Moderate to heavy monsoon rains will be experienced until Friday afternoon in Ilocos Region, Cordillera Administrative Region, Zambales, Bataan, Occidental Mindoro and northern portions of Palawan (including Calamian Islands). Light to moderate with intermittent heavy monsoon rains will prevail over Metro Manila, Western Visayas, CALABARZON (Cavite-Laguna-Batangas-Rizal-Quezon), and the rest of Central Luzon and MIMAROPA (Mindoro-Marinduque-Romblon-Palawan). Rough sea conditions will also prevail in the western seaboards of Luzon and Visayas, and the northern and eastern seaboards of Mindanao. Meanwhile, the low pressure area estimated at 180 kilometers (km) west of Dagupan City, Pangasinan as of Thursday morning had dissipated by afternoon.
