Estareja also warned of hot and humid conditions in  Metro Manila — where the temperature may rise up to 34 degrees Celsius — as well as Central Luzon, Ilocos region, Cagayan Valley and Bicol region.

Visayas and Mindanao

The easterlies will also trigger rain in Eastern Visayas, the southern portion of Central Visayas, and the entire Mindanao.
