Heavy Rainfall Outlook

Forecast accumulated rainfall for the next 24 hours (from this early morning to tomorrow early morning):

Up to 25 mm in most areas of Central Luzon, Metro Manila, and CALABARZON, reaching 50 mm in a few locations (mostly in Central Luzon and northern Quezon) caused by scattered rainshowers and thunderstorms.

Under these conditions, isolated flashfloods and rain-induced landslides remains possible, especially in areas that are highly or very highly susceptible to these hazards as identified in hazard maps and in localities that experienced considerable amounts of rainfall for the past several days.

Severe Winds

Areas under Wind Signal No. 1 may experience strong winds (strong breeze to near gale strength) associated with the tropical depression which may cause minimal to minor impacts to life and property.


In the next 24 hours, moderate to rough seas (1.2 to 3.0 m) may be experienced over the western seaboards of Northern Luzon, and the northern and eastern seaboards of Luzon.

Mariners of small seacrafts are advised to take precautionary measures when venturing out to sea and, if possible, avoid navigating in these conditions.
