The Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) on Monday said the tail-end of the cold front is affecting Northern Luzon as it continues to be the dominant weather system in the country.
The tail-end of a cold front is the front boundary of two air masses, which produces clouds and rain.
PAGASA weather forecaster Buddy Javier said the agency does not see any weather disturbance near or within the Philippine area of responsibility (PAR) that could intensify into a cyclone within 48 hours.
However, he noted that until Tuesday, northern Luzon and Central Luzon will continue to experience partly cloudy to cloudy skies with light rains because of a tail-end of a cold front and northeast monsoon.
He added that the rest of the country including Metro Manila will experience a mix of sunny to cloudy skies with possible afternoon and evening rains due to localized thunderstorms.
For Monday forecast, PAGASA said that Metro Manila and the regions of Ilocos, Cordillera, Cagayan Valley and Central Luzon will have partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated light rains while the rest of the country will be partly cloudy to cloudy with isolated rainshowers or thunderstorms.
It added that moderate to strong winds blowing from the northeast will prevail over Northern Luzon and its coastal waters 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 surge of Northeast Monsoon is expected to affect the northern seaboard of Northern 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 said. PNA
