Cloudy skies, rain in northern parts of Luzon due to amihan — Pagasa

MANILA, Philippines — Huge parts of northern Luzon may experience cloudy skies and light rains on Wednesday due to the northeast monsoon or “amihan,” the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) said.

Satellite images shared by Pagasa in its Tuesday afternoon update showed thick clouds surrounding the eastern provinces of Luzon, stretching from Aurora to areas in Cagayan Valley, Cordillera Administrative Region, and Ilocos Region.

Meanwhile, the rest of Luzon, including Metro Manila, may see partly cloudy to cloudy skies, with a chance of localized thunderstorms.


Due to the rains over northern Luzon, cities up north may see slightly lower temperatures — Tuguegarao with 21 to 29 degrees Celsius, Baguio with 16 to 23 degrees, and Laoag with 21 to 31 degrees, compared to Metro Manila’s 23 to 30 degrees and Legazpi’s 25 to 31 degrees.


For Visayas and Mindanao, temperatures are expected to warm due to the easterlies, or warm winds from the Pacific Ocean.

Tacloban, Cebu, and Davao may have temperatures ranging from 26 to 31 degrees Celsius; Cagayan de Oro with 25 to 31 degrees; Iloilo with 27 to 31 degrees; and Zamboanga with 24 to 34 degrees.

No gale warning has been raised as of now in any part of the country, which means small boat operators and fisherfolk are free to set sail.
