The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) said on Friday that sunny to partly cloudy weather is expected in most parts of the country over the weekend.
In a interview, PAGASA weather forecaster Cris Perez said except for the Northern Luzon, the rest of the country including Metro Manila will have sunny to partly cloudy skies with possible afternoon or evening rains until Sunday due to localized thunderstorms.
On the other hand, Northern Luzon, he noted will experience partly cloudy to cloudy skies with passing light rains due to the effect of the northeast monsoon or “hanging amihan.”
He added they are not expecting any tropical cyclone toaffect the country in the next two to three days.
However, Perez said they still expect one more cyclone to enter or form inside Philippine territory before the month ends.
In its Friday forecast, PAGASA said that the regions of Ilocos, Cordillera and Cagayan Valley will experience partly cloudy to cloudy skies with light rains.
It added Metro Manila and the rest of the country will have partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rainshowers or thunderstorms.
PAGASA also said moderate to strong winds blowing from the east to northeast will prevail over Luzon and Eastern Visayas and the coastal waters along these areas will be moderate to rough.
Elsewhere, winds will be light to moderate coming from the northeast to east with slight to moderate seas. PNA
