Meanwhile, the heavy rains on Monday night in Metro Manila were caused by southwest monsoon, the prevailing weather system during rainy season, that was enhanced by Emong. The rains caused heavy traffic and floods in several major Metro Manila thoroughfares. The Armed Forces of the Philippines had to deploy three M-35 trucks along EDSA and Fairview in Quezon City to provide transport to stranded commuters.

Moderate to strong winds blowing from the southwest to west will prevail over Luzon and Visayas and coming from the southwest over Mindanao. The coastal waters throughout the archipelago will be moderate to rough.
