Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration weather bureau explained why we experience the heavy rains on Sunday night. It was the enhanced southwest monsoon (habagat) covering the entire areas of Luzon.

PAGASA weather forecast as of 5:00 a.m, "Southwest monsoon affecting Luzon and Visayas," "moderate to strong winds blowing from the Southwest will prevail throughout the archipelago and the coastal waters will be moderate to rough."

While PAGASA forecaster Fernando Cada said to radio dzMM, “Nagkataon lumakas ang habagat that time at yung mga kaulapan ay halos hinahatak ng bagyo, although malayo naman ang bagyong si tropical storm Haikui na sa may part ng southern Japan. Malayo iyun at hindi na pumasok sa PAR.”

Cada said, “May terminology na kung saan ang tawag diyan ay siyam-siyam, ngayon kasi ay may dere-deretsong pag ulan, partikular dito sa Luzon, lalo na sa Metro Manila. Talagang sustained o well established ang habagat.”

Meanwhile, scattered rainshowers and thunderstorms will continue to affect some provinces particularly in the Western Section of Luzon and Visayas due to the southwest monsoon.

All residents living in low lying and mountainous areas are alerted against possible flashfloods and landslides, according to PAGASA.
