Metro Manila (CNN Philippines) — Typhoon Butchoy (international name: Nepartak) has left the Philippine Area of Responsibility, but the southwest monsoon or habagat will continue to bring rains to Luzon and Visayas on Saturday.

Butchoy is enhancing the habagat, which will bring monsoon rains over the provinces of Zambales, Bataan, Cavite, Batangas, Palawan, and Mindoro.

State weather bureau PAGASA said in its 5 a.m. forecast that occasional rains will be experienced over Metro Manila, the Ilocos Region, Western Visayas, and provinces of Marinduque and Romblon.
