The northeast monsoon will persist in Luzon, bringing isolated rains to Metro Manila and the provinces, according to the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA).
”Metro Manila and the rest of Luzon will have partly cloudy to at times cloudy skies with isolated light rains,” PAGASA said on its 5:00 a.m. weather bulletin Saturday.
The northeast monsoon or “hanging amihan” are cold winds coming from mainland China, which blows in early October, reaching its peak during February and lasts until March.
The state-run weather bureau noted the rest of the country will have partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rainshowers or thunderstorms.
Meanwhile, PAGASA issued a gale warning along the eastern seaboards of Central and Southern Luzon and Visayas.
Fisherfolk and those with small boats are discouraged to head out to sea in the mentioned areas.
Other areas will have light to moderate winds coming from the northeast, in turn creating slight to moderate seas. PNA
