MANILA, Philippines — Partly cloudy to cloudy skies with rains may dominate most of the country on Tuesday amid three weather systems currently influencing the climate in the Philippines.

The state weather agency said in a bulletin that the easterlies or the warm winds blowing from the Pacific Ocean, northeast monsoon, and localized thunderstorms may cause overcast skies and scattered or isolated rain showers or thunderstorms in many areas across the country.


The Bicol Region, Eastern Visayas, Surigao del Norte, Dinagat Islands, and Quezon were forecast to experience cloudy skies with scattered rain showers and thunderstorms due to the easterlies on Tuesday.


According to the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa), flash floods or landslides due to moderate to, at times, heavy rains could occur in these areas.

Partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated light rains were predicted over Batanes and Babuyan Islands because of the northeast monsoon (locally known as amihan) but Pagasa said this weather condition may have no significant impact on the provinces.

As for Metro Manila and the rest of the country, Pagasa said the easterlies and localized thunderstorms were seen to bring partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rain showers or thunderstorms in these areas. The state weather bureau noted flash floods or landslides are possible during severe thunderstorms in affected localities.

Pagasa’s weather specialist, Patrick del Mundo, said in an early morning report that generally fair weather may be expected from Thursday, November 9.

“Sa mga susunod naman na mga araw, especially Thursday onwards, asahan naman ang generally fair weather conditions sa malaking bahagi ng ating bansa,” he said.

(In the next few days, especially Thursday onwards, expect generally fair weather conditions in large parts of our country.)


Meanwhile, state meteorologists were not monitoring any low-pressure area inside or outside the Philippine area of responsibility. Pagasa also said that no gale warning is raised in any part of the country’s seaboards for Tuesday. — Luisa Cabato, reporter
