“The regions of CARAGA, Davao and Soccsksargen will experience cloudy skies with moderate to heavy rainshowers and thunderstorms which may trigger flashfloods and landslides,” Pagasa said.

“Eastern Visayas and the rest of Mindanao and will have cloudy skies with light to moderate rainshowers or thunderstorms. Cagayan Valley, Mimaropa and the provinces of Aurora and Quezon will be cloudy with light rains.”

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

Moderate to strong winds blowing from the northeast will prevail throughout the archipelago and its coastal waters will be moderate to rough.
