Gale warning issued to Luzon northern and eastern seaboards


Fisher folks are advised not to head to sea Saturday, as PAGASA issued a gale warning in the northern and eastern seaboards of Luzon.

”There is still a gale warning in the areas of Northern and Eastern Luzon seaboards,” said PAGASA Weather Forecaster Benjie De Pez.

PAGASA, in its 5 a.m. advisory, said that Luzon’s coastal waters may be moderate to rough due to estimated moderate to strong winds brought in by the ‘Amihan.’

The ‘Amihan’ or northeast monsoon is the cold wind from Siberia, Russia that blows into the Philippines, usually from mid-October until March.

Moreover, PAGASA is projecting rainshowers in Luzon Saturday, as the Amihan blows in the archipelago, along with the the passing of the tail-end of a cold front.

Also, the weather bureau said that Aurora will have moderate to occasional heavy rains and isolated thunderstorms, which may cause flashfloods and landslides.

Quezon has been issued a yellow rainfall alert warning, which means that low lying areas may possibly be flooded.

For Central and Southern Luzon, which comprises the Bicol region, the rest of CALABARZON, Mindoro and Marinduque provinces, the skies will be cloudy, accompanied by light to moderate rainshowers and thunderstorms.

PAGASA further projects that Metro Manila, Cagayan Valley, CAR, Ilocos region and the rest of Central Luzon will have cloudy skies with light rains.

The rest of the country will have partly cloudy to cloudy skies, with isolated rainshowers or thunderstorms.

Metro Manila is estimated to have a temperature of 24-30 degrees Celsius Saturday.

For Metro Cebu, PAGASA said the temperature will be at 24-31 degrees Celsius.

Further, Metro Davao is estimated to have a temperature of 25 to 33 degrees Celsius.

On the other hand, there is no indication yet of a new Low Pressure Area (LPA),said De Pez. PNA
