The first week the rain was from typhoon Saola, who just passed the island of Luzon, however it made no land-fall and went off to the north, but most of the rain came the last two weeks just from the monsoon.
In three weeks time we got much more than average this time of the year.
The average for July and August (62 days) are 341 mm and 398 mm, so a total of 739 mm or 250 mm for 3 weeks (21 days). The average figures are for Manila area, but we have the same climate as in Manila.
See the real accumulated rain data from my weather station in below graph. In the last 3 weeks we got 540 mm, while the average is 250 mm, so more than double.
In the last 2 weeks we got 350 mm, while the average is 166 mm, also more than double.
