MANILA, Philippines—A tail-end of a cold front is affecting Northern Luzon while an intertropical convergence zone (ITCZ) is affecting southern Mindanao, the Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration said.

“The regions of Ilocos, Cordillera, Cagayan Valley, Central Luzon, Northern Mindanao, Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao,, Soccsksargen, and Zamboanga Peninsula will have cloudy skies with light to moderate rainshowers and thunderstorms,” it said.

Meanwhile, Metro Manila and the rest of the country will be partly cloudy with isolated rainshowers or thunderstorms mostly in the afternoon or evening.


Light to moderate winds blowing from the northeast to east will prevail over Mindanao and from the east to southeast over the rest of the country, while the coastal waters throughout the archipelago will be slight to moderate, Pagasa said.
