MANILA, Philippines — Severe Tropical Storm “Nimfa” has exited the country while the southwest monsoon or “habagat” will continue to bring rain over Luzon, including Metro Manila on Saturday, the state weather bureau said.

 

In its 5 a.m. weather bulletin, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) said the weather disturbance slightly intensified and left the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) at 2 a.m.

Nimfa was last spotted 705 kilometers northeast of Basco, Batanes while moving at 25 kilometers per hour (kph) north northwest.

It is packing maximum sustained winds of 110 kph and gustiness of up to 135 kph.
