MANILA, Philippines—Although tropical depression Quinta has moved out of the Philippine territory and eventually dissipated into a low pressure area, rains will still be experienced in parts of the country due to northeast monsoon or “hanging amihan,” the state weather bureau said Friday.

The northeast monsoon affecting Northern and Central Luzon will bring cloudy skies with light to moderate rains in the regions of Ilocos and Cordillera, Cagayan Valley, Bicol region and the provinces of Aurora and Quezon, the Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration said.

Meanwhile, the rest of the country including Metro Manila will have partly cloudy skies with brief rainshowers or thunderstorms.


Moderate to strong winds blowing from the northeast to east will prevail throughout the archipelago and the coastal waters will be moderate to rough, Pagasa said.
