Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, August 9) — Parts of the country are still expected to experience rains even if Tropical Storm Enteng left the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) on Sunday afternoon.

In its latest update, the Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) said Enteng (international name: Jangmi) was moving north toward South Korea.

Despite Enteng's exit, the southwest monsoon, or habagat, is expected to bring gusty conditions over Pangasinan, Benguet, Nueva Vizcaya, Quirino, Central Luzon, Metro Manila, Calabarzon, MIMAROPA, Bicol Region, and Western Visayas.

"The southwest monsoon enhanced by Enteng and the low pressure area west of Dagupan City will bring monsoon rains over Ilocos Region, Abra, Benguet, Zambales, Bataan, Pampanga, Tarlac, Cavite, Batangas, and MIMAROPA and occasional rains over Metro Manila, Aklan, Antique, and the rest of Luzon," said PAGASA.

As of 4 p.m., the weather bureau said the LPA was spotted 250 kilometers west of Dagupan City, and said it may develop into a tropical depression within the next 24 hours.

Residents of these areas are advised to be on the lookout for possible flooding and landslides. Local disaster officials, meanwhile, are advised to monitor updates and take proper precaution.

A gale warning was also raised over the seaboards of Pangasinan, Zambales, Bataan, the western coast of Batangas, the western coast of Occidental Mindoro (including Lubang Island), the western coast of Palawan (including Calamian Island), Batanes, Cagayan (including Babuyan Islands), and Isabela.
