MANILA—Two weather systems -- Typhoon “Inday” (international name Ampil) which has intensified into severe tropical storm, and a new low pressure area spotted outside the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) -- are enhancing the southwest monsoon or "habagat", bringing intermittent moderate to heavy rains in most of Luzon over the weekend.

In its 11 a.m. severe weather bulletin, PAGASA said the LPA was last observed at 475 kilometers west of Laoag City, Ilocos Norte.

Ilocos and Cordillera regions, Zambales, Bataan, Pampanga, Bulacan, Tarlac and Nueva Ecija and

Metro Manila and the rest of Luzon will experience scattered light to moderate with occasional heavy rains until Saturday.

Residents in these areas are warned against possible flooding and landslides. Sea travel is risky over the western seaboards of Luzon due to the southwest monsoon.

“Inday” is expected to exit the PAR between Friday night or Saturday morning. (PNA)
