Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, September 5) — Tropical Depression Ineng (international name: Yun-Yeung) exited the Philippine Area of Responsibility at around 4 a.m. on Wednesday, according to the state weather bureau.

"Sa ngayon ay wala na tayong bagyo minomonitor sa loob ng PAR. Wala na rin tayong minomonitor na ibang low pressure," weather specialist Obet Badrina said in a press briefing early Wednesday morning.

[Translation: Right now, we don't have any typhoons being monitored within the PAR. We are also not monitoring any other low pressure.]

But according to Badrina southwest monsoon or "habagat" enhanced by Typhoon Haikui (locally named Hanna) will still continue to dump rains over some parts of Luzon, but is expected to weaken in the coming days.

In its 5 a.m. bulletin, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration said rainfall is expected over the Ilocos Region, Bataan, and Zambales.

"In general, posibleng medyo mainit na panahon ang mararanasan sa malaking bahagi ng Luzon, Visayas, at Mindanao," he added.

[Translation: In general, it is possible to experience relatively hot weather in large parts of Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao.]

Ineng was last spotted at 1,240 kilometers (km) east of extreme Northern Luzon with sustained winds of 55 km per hour (km/h) near the center and gustiness of up to 70 km/h. It is moving northeastward at 20 km/h.
