MANILA, Philippines — The tail-end of a frontal system will bring scattered rains to the eastern section of Northern Luzon while the rest of Luzon will have isolated rain showers on Monday due to the northeast monsoon or “amihan” according to the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa).

 Based on the weather forecast issued by Pagasa at 4 a.m., the Cordillera Administrative Region and Cagayan Valley will experience cloudy skies with scattered rains and isolated thunderstorms due to the tail-end of a frontal system, or a weather system that forms due to the interaction of the cold northeast monsoon and warm easterly winds.

 The “amihan” will trigger cloudy skies with light rains in Batanes and Babuyan Islands, and partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated light rains in the Ilocos region.

 Meanwhile, fair weather is expected over the rest of Luzon, according to Pagasa weather specialist Aldczar Aurelio.

 “Sa nalalabing bahagi ng Luzon kasama ang Metro Manila ay magiging maganda at maaliwalas ang panahon kung saan bahagyang maulap hanggang sa maulap ang papawirin. Pero may tsansa ng mga isolated na pag-ulan dulot ng thunderstorm,” he said. 

 (The rest of Luzon, including Metro Manila, will have fair weather with partly cloudy to cloudy skies. However, isolated rain showers may occur due to thunderstorms.)

 Eastern Visayas, the Caraga and Davao regions will have cloudy skies with scattered rain showers and thunderstorms due to the easterlies or warm winds coming from the Pacific Ocean.

 “Sa nalalabing bahagi ng Visayas, ganun din sa nalalabing bahagi ng Mindanao, fair weather po tayo sa araw na ito maliban lamang po sa mga biglaang buhos ng ulan dulot ng localized thunderstorms na madalas sa hapon o gabi,” Aurelio also said.

 (For the rest of Visayas and Mindanao, there will also be fair weather except for sudden rains due to localized thunderstorms mostly in the afternoon or evening.)

 Aurelio said there is no low-pressure area currently being monitored within or near the Philippine area of responsibility.
