Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, August 10) —Tropical Depression Ferdie blew out of the country on Monday morning, but Metro Manila and parts of Luzon will continue to be drenched by rains, the state weather bureau reported.

In its 11am forecast, the Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration said Ferdie exited at 9 a.m. from the country's monitoring zone or area of responsibility.

As of 10 a.m., the tropical depression was located at 265 kilometers (km) northwest of Laoag City, Ilocos Norte or 315 km northwest of Calayan, Cagayan, maintaining winds of 55 kph and gusts of 70 kph.

Tropical Cyclone Warning Signal No.1 was lifted over parts of Ilocos Norte and Ilocos Sur.

“The rest of Luzon, including Metro Manila will experience rains brought by the southwest monsoon,” weather forecaster Aldzcar Aurelio told CNN Philippines’ New Day.

Meanwhile, Visayas and Mindanao will have a generally fair weather, Aurelio added.

Ferdie is the sixth tropical cyclone for 2020, following Tropical Storm Enteng (international name: Jangmi) which exited the country late Sunday.
