Expect rains in several parts of the country due to the tail-end of the cold front affecting Northern and Central Luzon and the trough of a low pressure area affecting Mindanao, the state weather bureau said on Thursday.

It added that Metro Manila and the regions of Ilocos, Cordillera, Cagayan Valley and Central Luzon will have partly cloudy to cloudy skies with rains while the rest of the country will be partly cloudy to cloudy with isolated rainshowers or thunderstorms.
The weather agency said that moderate to strong winds blowing from the northeast will prevail over northern luzon and its coastal waters will be moderate to rough.
Elsewhere, winds will be light to moderate coming from the northeast to north with slight to moderate seas.
PAGASA also issued a strong to gale-force winds associated with the northeast monsoon may affect the seaboards of Northern Luzon.
“Fishing boats and other small seacrafts are advised not to venture out into the sea while larger sea vessels are alerted against big waves,” it said. PNA
