S & T Media Service

The passage of Tropical Storm Dante and the occurrence of widespread rainfall monitored by PAGASA in the last five days for areas under Type I climate confirm the onset of the rainy season. Intermittent rains, associated with the Southwest (SW) monsoon will continue to affect Metro Manila and the western section of the country.
The probability of near to above normal rainfall conditions is high in the next two months (June-July). However, breaks in rainfall events (also known as monsoon breaks), which can last for several days or weeks, may still occur.

PAGASA will continue to closely monitor the situation and updates/advisories shall be issued as appropriate. The public and all concerned agencies are advised to take precautionary measures against the impacts of the rainy season.

For more information, you may contact PAGASA at telephone numbers 927-1335 and 8284-0800 local 906.
