EASTERLIES or warm winds from the Pacific area are bringing cloudy skies and light rains over the eastern portion of the country, the state-run weather bureau said on Sunday.
This is why Caraga, Davao region, and the provinces of Aurora and Quezon are experiencing cloudy skies with scattered rainshowers and thunderstorms.
The easterlies will continue to bring light rains in these areas and even bring possible flash floods or landslides due to severe thunderstorms, weather specialist Meno Mendoza of the Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) said.
Metro Manila and the rest of the country will have partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rainshowers caused by localized thunderstorms.
Pagasa said that the country would likely experience generally fair weather in the coming days.
“No other major weather system was located inside the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR), which might affect the country in two to three days,” Mendoza said.
Extreme Northern Luzon will have moderate to strong winds from the northeast direction with moderate to rough coastal waters.
The rest of Northern Luzon will have moderate to occasionally strong winds from the east to northeast direction with moderate to occasionally rough coastal waters.
The rest of the country will have light to moderate winds from east to northeast with slight to moderate coastal waters. GLEE JALEA 2018-10-13
