The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) released an advisory regarding the effects of the Southwest Monsoon and Typhoon Henry over Luzon for the next 24 hours.
While typhoon Henry has weakened as it begins to move northwestward over the Philippine Sea, east northeast of Batanes, the Southwest Monsoon will bring additional rains to other parts of Luzon.
According to the weather advisory released at 11:00 AM today, the combined effect of the southwest monsoon and typhoon “Henry” (Hinnamnor) will bring moderate to heavy with at times intense rains over Kalinga, Mountain Province, Ifugao, Benguet, and Zambales.
Isabela, Quirino, Nueva Vizcaya, Bataan, and Occidental Mindoro will also experience light to moderate with at times heavy rains.
The weather agency warned of the likely occurrence of scattered flooding and rain-induced landslides, especially in areas that are highly or very highly susceptible to these hazards.
Batanes is currently under Tropical Cyclone Wind Signal No. 2 while the Babuyan Islands and the northeastern portion of mainland Cagayan (Santa Ana) are under TCWS Signal No. 1. PAGASA says the typhoon is forecast to weaken further in the next 12 hours but may re-intensify tomorrow morning as it begins to move northward.
The next weather bulletin will be released by PAGASA at 5 PM today.
