Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, September 24) — Some parts of the country will continue to experience cloudy skies and rains due to the southwest monsoon, or habagat, and the extension of a low pressure area (LPA), or trough, the state weather bureau said Sunday.

According to the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA), cloudy skies and scattered rainshowers will persist in Metro Manila, the rest of Luzon, and the Visayas.

On the other hand, Mindanao will have generally fair weather but clustered rainshowers are expected in the afternoon, PAGASA said

State meteorologists also said an LPA located east of Catarman, Northern Samar dissolved on Saturday evening.

Another LPA, which was last spotted west of Dagupan City, Pangasinan, left the Philippine Area of Responsibility early Sunday morning.

Kaninang 3 a.m., namataan ang LPA sa layong 600 kilometers west of Iba, Zambales,” weather specialist Daniel Villamil said in a briefing.

[Translation: As of 3 a.m., the LPA was spotted 600 kilometers west of Iba, Zambales.]

Villamil also said for the next three days starting Monday, improving weather conditions are expected in northern and central Luzon, particularly in Metro Manila and Baguio City.
