Slightly cooler than normal temperatures are expected in most parts of Luzon in the next two days because of the effects of the northeast monsoon and tail-end of a cold front that will bring passing light rains in Northern Luzon until Wednesday.
Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) weather forecaster Alvin Pura said Monday the cold northeast monsoon or “hanging amihan” will also result to strong to gale force winds that will cause rough to very rough sea condition over the seaboards of Northern Luzon and eastern Central 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 warned.
The tail-end of a cold front, on the other hand, will bring cloudy skies with light to moderate rains over Southern Luzon.
He said the rest of the country, including Metro Manila, will have partly cloudy to cloudy skies with possible isolated rains due to localized thunderstorms.
In its Monday forecast, PAGASA said Aurora, Quezon and Palawan will experience cloudy skies with light to moderate rainshowers and thunderstorms while the regions of Cagayan Valley, Cordillera and Ilocos will have cloudy skies with light rains.
Metro Manila and the rest of the country will be partly cloudy to cloudy with isolated rainshowers or thunderstorms.
PAGASA also said moderate to strong winds blowing from the northeast will prevail over Luzon and the coastal waters along these areas will be moderate to rough.
Elsewhere, winds will be light to moderate coming from the east to northeast with slight to moderate seas. PNA
