MANILA, Philippines — Five weather systems are expected to bring rain across the country in the next 24 hours, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) announced Thursday.

Pagasa reports that the trough of the low-pressure area, which left the Philippine area of responsibility Wednesday afternoon, along with the shear line, will cause cloudy skies with scattered rain showers and thunderstorms in Cagayan, Isabela, Aurora, Quezon, and Kalayaan Islands.


The northeast monsoon will lead to cloudy skies with rain in the Cordillera Administrative Region, the rest of the Cagayan Valley, Ilocos Norte, and Ilocos Sur. Meanwhile, the remaining Ilocos Region will experience partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated light rains due to the monsoon.


Metro Manila and the rest of the country will have partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rain showers and thunderstorms, influenced by the easterlies and localized thunderstorms, according to Pagasa.

Weather Specialist Daniel James Villamil predicts clearer weather for Metro Manila.

“We expect clearer and warmer weather, though there’s still a chance of localized thunderstorms, which are intermittent rain showers with thunder and lightning, usually in the afternoon until evening,” Villamil said.

Pagasa warns that flash floods and landslides may occur during moderate to heavy rains and severe thunderstorms.

Gale warnings are in effect for the seaboards of Batanes, Cagayan, including Babuyan Islands, Isabela, Ilocos Norte, Ilocos Sur, La Union, and Pangasinan. Villamil noted that these areas will experience moderate to rough seas due to the northeast monsoon.
