MANILA, Philippines —  Overcast skies and rain may occur on Wednesday in the extreme Northern Luzon due to the northeast monsoon and in many parts of Visayas and Mindanao because of the easterlies, according to the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa).

“Sa extreme Northern Luzon meron po tayong inaasahang maulang panahon, at dito naman sa nalalabing bahagi ng Northern Luzon at Central Luzon ay mostly fair weather na tiyansa po ng mga mahinang rain showers,” said Pagasa weather specialist Nikos Peñeranda


(Rainy weather will prevail over extreme Northern Luzon, with mostly fair weather conditions  in the rest of Northern Luzon and Central Luzon but with weak rain showers.)


“Sa Southern Luzon at Metro Manila asahan po itong tiyansa ng rain showers at thunderstorms pero mostly po pulo pulo lamang ito at fair weather ang mararanasan,” he added.

(In Southern Luzon and Metro Manila, expect fair weather conditions with only isolated rain showers and thunderstorms.)

As for the majority of Visayas and Mindanao, Pagasa said these areas will have cloudy skies and rain due to the easterlies – excluding the western section of these regions where generally fair weather conditions are expected to prevail.
