Muling nagbabala ang National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC) sa publiko na mag-ingat at manatiling handa dahil sa tumataas na peligro ng pagbaha at pagguho ng lupa dulot ng tuloy-tuloy na pag-ulan dala ng Habagat at iba pang mga umiiral na weather system. Kasalukuyang nagdadala ng malalakas na pag-ulan ang hanging Habagat sa kanlurang bahagi ng bansa ayon sa Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA). Binabantayan din nito ang isang Low Pressure Area (LPA) sa loob ng Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) na namataan sa layong 950 kilometro sa Silangan ng Davao kaninang alas tres ng umaga. Mataas ang tiyansa na maging bagyo ito at papangalanang “Ester”.
