Due to the effect of the series of thunderstorms embedded in the Southwest Monsoon flow, expect heavy to intense rainfall (10 to 25mm/hr) with occasional to frequent torrential (more than 30mm/hr) within 3 hours, weather experts said.

There is no typhoon or storm existing within the Philippine Area of Responsibility, but the Southwest Monsoon is still affecting Luzon and Visayas.

PAGASA advised residents in high risk areas to take precautionary measures and to watch out for the next warning.
