Northern Luzon will experience light rains on Thursday due to northeast monsoon affecting the area, the Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) said.
Cagayan Valley, Ilocos and Cordillera regions will experience cloudy skies with light rains while the rest of the country including Metro Manila will be partly cloudy to cloudy with isolated rainshowers or thunderstorms.
Moderate to strong winds blowing from the northeast will prevail over Northern and Central Luzon and coming from the east to northeast over Southern Luzon and Eastern Visayas.
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.
PAGASA also issued gale warning as strong to gale force winds associated with the northeast monsoon will affect the seaboards of northern Luzon, the seaboards of Northern Luzon and the eastern seaboards of Central and Southern Luzon.
“Fishing boats and other small seacrafts along these coasts were advised against venturing out to the sea, while larger sea vessels were alerted against heavy seas,” the state weather bureau said. PNA
