Cloudy skies, light rains in Luzon due to ‘amihan,’ thunderstorms – Pagasa
MANILA, Philippines — Partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated light rains are expected in parts of Northern Luzon due to the northeast monsoon or “amihan,” the state weather bureau said on Monday.
The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) said that the Ilocos Region, Cordillera Administrative Region, and Cagayan Valley will experience partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated light rains.
Meanwhile, the easterlies or warm winds coming from the east will bring cloudy skies with scattered rain showers and thunderstorms in the Bicol Region, Aurora, and Quezon.
Metro Manila and the rest of the country will experience partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rain showers due to localized thunderstorms.
Pagasa warned of possible flash floods and landslides in rain-affected areas.
The state weather bureau also said that Luzon will have moderate to strong northeast wind and moderate to strong (1.2 to 2.8 meters) coastal waters.
Visayas and Mindanao, meanwhile, will experience light to moderate northeast winds and slight to moderate (0.6 to 2.1 meters) coastal waters.
