Also due to strong winds brought by amihan, gale warning is still up along the country’s eastern seaboard. Small fishing vessels are not allowed to sail due to waves reaching 4.5 meters high.

Meanwhile, Pagasa is monitoring a weak low-pressure area (LPA) located outside the Philippine area of responsibility (PAR).

The LPA, together with a tail-end of a cold front, is expected to enter PAR on Thursday morning and may bring isolated rain and thunderstorms over Visayas and Mindanao by Thursday afternoon.
