MANILA—The southwest monsoon affecting the western section of Luzon and the Visayas will bring light to moderate rainshowers over parts of these islands on Thursday, state weather agency Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) said.

Partly cloudy to cloudy skies with rainshowers or thunderstorms, on the other hand, will be experienced over Metro Manila and the rest of the country.
