“‘Yung amihan naman or northeast monsoon, hindi pa umiiral ngayong umaga pero pagsapit po ng hapon unti-unting lalakas ito,” Pagasa weather specialist Benison Estareja said.

(The northeast monsoon is not prevailing this morning but by afternoon, it will gradually intensify.)

In anticipation of the northeast monsoon, Pagasa raised a gale warning over the seaboards of Batanes.

“Sa ngayon, dahil po du’n sa anticipation ng pagbaba ng amihan dito sa extreme northern Luzon ay tinaas na natin ang gale warning dito po sa Batanes,” Estareja said, noting the waves could reach up to 4.5 meters starting this afternoon.

(Currently, due to anticipation of the amihan in extreme northern Luzon, we raised a gale warning in Batanes.)

Fisherfolk in Batanes are prohibited to venture out at sea.

Meanwhile, the rest of the country’s seaboards will have a slight to moderate sea condition with waves of 0.6 to 2.1 meters.
