'Egay' likely to weaken within the day

Tropical Depression “Egay” is expected to weaken into a Low Pressure Area within 12 to 24 hours, the weather bureau said Monday.

Egay was last spotted 195 kilometers east northeast of Aparri, Cagayan as of 10 a.m. where it remains stationary. It has maximum winds of 45 kph near the center and gustiness of up to 60 kph.

The weather disturbance is expected to cause light to moderate with at times heavy monsoon rains over most of Luzon including Metro Manila, and Western Visayas.

Cloudy skies with scattered rainshowers and thunderstorms, meanwhile, will prevail over Caraga, Davao Region and the rest of the Visayas.

Monsoon rains will likely continue to drench Metro Manila, Ilocos Region, Cordillera, Zambales, Bataan, Tarlac, Pampanga, Bulacan, Mindoro provinces and Palawan until Tuesday, 2 June.

The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) warns against the possible risk of flooding and landslides and advised fisherfolks with small sea crafts in Northern Luzon, western Central and Southern Luzon not to venture out due to the prevailing moderate to rough seas in the area.

Meanwhile, Signal number one is still being experienced in Batanes and the Babuyan Group of Islands.
