Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, September 13) — Tropical Depression "Marilyn" continues to enhance the southwest monsoon, bringing rains over most parts of the country, the weather bureau said Friday.

In its 11 p.m. update, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) said light to moderate to heavy rains may pour over Metro Manila, Aurora, CALABARZON, Bicol Region, MIMAROPA, Western Visayas, and the Zamboanga Peninsula until Sunday evening. 

There are no storm alerts as the weather bureau does not expect the tropical depression to hit land. But it warned against sea travel especially for small seacraft, in the central and eastern seaboards of the Visayas and the seaboards of Mindanao because of rough seas.

PAGASA said Marilyn may curve back into the Philippine Area of Responsibility on Sunday. 

As of 10 p.m., Marilyn was last seen 1,130 kilometers east of Basco, Batanes with maximum sustained winds of 55 kilometers per hour (kph) near the center and gustiness of up to 70 kph.

It was slowly moving northwest at 10 kph.
