Occasional light rains due to the northeast monsoon or amihan will be felt across extreme Northern Luzon, eastern side of Cagayan and Isabela until Monday, according to the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA).
PAGASA said the easterly winds will bring scattered rain showers and thunderstorms over Eastern Visayas, Caraga, Davao Region, Northern Mindanao, and Palawan.
It warned of possible flash floods or landslides due to light to moderate to at times heavy rains over these areas.
Meanwhile, Metro Manila and the rest of the country will experience partly cloudy to cloudy skies with scattered rain showers and thunderstorms, mostly in the eastern section.
By Tuesday until Friday, PAGASA said partly cloudy to cloudy with light rains will affect extreme Northern Luzon, eastern part of Cagayan Valley, Aurora and Quezon due to the tail-end of a cold front reaching the northern portion of the country.
Meanwhile, easterlies or the warm and humid air from the Pacific Ocean will bring partly cloudy skies with scattered rain showers and thunderstorms over Bicol Region, Samar, Caraga and Northern Mindanao.
PAGASA said the rest of the country including Metro Manila will be partly cloudy to cloudy with isolated rain showers and thunderstorms.
So far, PAGASA does not expect the formation of a tropical cyclone throughout the week.
