The Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) has issued a thunderstorm alert for parts of Metro Manila and nearby provinces on July 10 in anticipation of the heavy rains and possible floods expected within the day.

Inquirer.net reports that the affected areas in Metro Manila include Pasig, Mandaluyong, and Taguig. Residents of Candelaria, Masinloc, and San Marcelino in Zambales and Porac, Pampanga are also advised to prepare for strong rains and winds as well as possible flashfloods.

However, the thunderstorm forecasts are not caused by Typhoon Huaning (Soulik), which entered the Philippine area of responsibility on the same date. While the typhoon is not forecasted to make landfall anywhere in the country, it is still expected to bring light to moderate rains and thunderstorms to several parts of the country. Metro Manila and other areas might also experience isolated rain showers or thunderstorms.

PAGASA has also advised small boats to be wary of rough seas, especially off the coasts of Ilocos Norte, Ilocos Sur, La Union, and Pangasinan.
