Weather service PAGASA reported in a Wednesday morning forecast that western and northern Luzon would be under the influence of the southwest monsoon, which was being enhanced by two typhoons outside the Philippine Area of Responsibility.

One of the these typhoons, named internationally as Cimaron, was 2,000 kilometers east-northeast of extreme northern Luzon at 3 a.m.

Cimaron had 145 kilometer per hour winds, which could gust up to 180 kph, and was heading northwest at 25 kph.

Meanwhile, the typhoon with the international name Soulik was 1,245 kms north-northeast of extreme northern Luzon.

Soulik had 160 kph winds, which could gust up to 195 kph, and was moving northwest at 25 kph.

Enhanced by these two typhoons, the southwest monsoon would bring cloudy conditions accompanied with scattered rain and thunderstorms over the Ilocos and Cordillera Administrative Regions, Zambales, the Batanes, and the Babuyan Islands.

The rest of  the country could meanwhile expect partly cloudy to cloudy conditions accompanied with isolated rainshowers.

Winds would be strong to gale force form the southwest over extreme northern Luzon, where coastal waters would be rough to very rough.

Over the Visayas and the rest of Luzon, winds would be moderate to strong from the southwest  while surrounding sea conditions would be from moderate to rough.

Finally, winds over Mindanao would be light to moderate from the southwest while coastal waters would be slight to moderate. — DVM, GMA News
