More rain in Eastern Luzon, Visayas, Mindanao – Pagasa
MANILA, Philippines — The northeast monsoon or “amihan” and a shear line are expected to bring cloudy weather and rain in Eastern Luzon and the entire Visayas and Mindanao, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) said.
“Patuloy pa rin ang makulimlim na panahon na may mahinang pagulan diyan sa Cagayan Valley, Quezon, Aurora at Bicol Region area dahil pa rin ‘yan sa patuloy na pagiral ng amihan,” said Pagasa weather specialist Raymond Ordinario.
(Cloudy weather will continue bringing light rains in the Cagayan Valley, Quezon, Aurora and Bicol Region areas due to the northeast monsoon.)
The Kalayaan Islands and Palawan will also experience isolated rain and thunderstorms, said Ordinario.
“Samantala, maaliwalas na panahon ang inaasahan sa nalalabing bahagi ng Luzon including Metro Manila (Meanwhile, clear weather is expected in the rest of Luzon including Metro Manila),” he added.
The entire Visayas and Mindanao will also experience continued rains and cloudy skies as residents in Eastern Visayas and the northeastern portion of Mindanao are advised to be alert for landslides and floods.
Despite the continued rains, however, Pagasa said the first week of 2022 is expected to be typhoon-free as no storms or weather disturbances are expected to enter the country’s area of responsibility in the next three to five days.
The temperature range in key cities/areas according to Pagasa for Sunday:
Metro Manila: 23 to 30 degrees Celsius
Baguio City: 12 to 22 degrees Celsius
Laoag City: 20 to 31 degrees Celsius
Tuguegarao: 20 to 27 degrees Celsius
Legazpi City: 25 to 30 degrees Celsius
Puerto Princesa City: 26 to 31 degrees Celsius
Tagaytay: 20 to 28 degrees Celsius

Tacloban City: 24 to 27 degrees Celsius
Cagayan De Oro City: 24 to 28 degrees Celsius

Meanwhile, because of the “amihan” a gale warning remains hoisted over a majority of the country’s coasts, specifically in the seaboards of Northern Luzon and Southern Luzon, as well as the eastern seaboard of Central Luzon, the seaboards of Visayas and the northern, western and eastern seaboard of Mindanao.
