A tail-end of a cold front is affecting Eastern Visayas, while the northeast monsoon is affecting Northern Luzon, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration said.


A trough or extension of a low pressure area is affecting Southern Mindanao.

“Bicol Region, Visayas and Mindanao will experience cloudy skies with light to moderate rainshowers and thunderstorms. The regions of Cagayan Valley, Cordillera and Ilocos will have partly cloudy to at times cloudy skies with light rains,” Pagasa said.
