Heavy Rainfall

Under the influence of the Southwest Monsoon being enhanced by 'Fabian', scattered to widespread monsoon rains will be experienced in the next 24 hours over Ilocos Region, Cordillera Administrative Region, Metro Manila, most of Central Luzon, CALABARZON, and MIMAROPA, and portions of Western Visayas.

Severe Winds

Occasionally gusty conditions associated with the enhanced Southwest Monsoon will be experienced over Luzon and Visayas, especially in the coastal and upland localities of these areas.


In the next 24 hours, under the influence of the enhanced Southwest Monsoon and the typhoon:

Rough to very rough seas will be experienced over the seaboards of Luzon and the western and central seaboards of Visayas. Sea travel is risky for small seacrafts over these waters. Mariners without the proper experience should immediately seek safe harbor.

Moderate to rough seas will prevail over the remaining seaboards of the country. Mariners of small seacrafts are advised to take precautionary measures when venturing out to sea. Inexperienced mariners should avoid navigating in these conditions.


'Fabian', the sixth tropical cyclone for 2021, developed into Tropical Depression while inside PAR on Friday, July 16.

PAGASA predicts that 1–3 tropical cyclones may enter the PAR this month.

On average, there are 20 tropical cyclones that could form or enter the PAR each year. Only half of those are projected to make landfall.

The weather agency declared the onset of the rainy season on Friday, June 5.
