The Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) said Sunday the country will not be affected by any low pressure area (LPA) or the brewing storm this week.
But the state weather bureau noted that easterlies or warm winds from the Pacific will bring scattered rains with cloudy skies in the Caraga and Davao regions and Aurora and Quezon provinces.
Pagasa weather specialist Aldczar Aurelio added Metro Manila and the rest of the country will also experience fair weather except for isolated thunderstorms in the afternoon or evening.
Pagasa said winds would be moderate to strong from the northeast over extreme Northern Luzon, where coastal waters would be moderate to rough.
Meanwhile the wind in the rest of Northern Luzon would be moderate to occasionally strong from the east to northeast with moderate to occasionally rough conditions over surrounding seas.
Finally, winds over the rest of the country would be light to moderate from the east to northeast with slight to moderate coastal waters.
Pagasa said two to three more storms are expected to enter the country before the year ends.
