MANILA, July 3 — Central and Southern Luzon, including Metro Manila, whipped Tuesday by winds from a low pressure area west of the capital, should expect rains until Wednesday morning, weather forecasters said.
Forecasters said the low pressure area was spotted at 2 p.m. Tuesday 40 km west of Manila (14.6°N, 120.7°E), reason for the rains and partially inundated streets in the capital as well as north and south of it.
"Residents living in low-lying areas and along mountain slopes are advised to be on alert for possible flash floods and landslides," the Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration said.
The Visayas, Mindanao and far Northern Luzon will have mostly cloudy skies with scattered rain showers and thunderstorms.
Bicol was also reported to have an improving weather situation Tuesday night.
The low pressure area was expected to gain strength off the West Philippine Sea when it has moved out of the country's area of responsibility later Wednesday.
