Slightly colder weather will prevail over the extreme Northern Luzon area due to the prevailing northeasterly surface wind flow affecting the region.

According to the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA), the northeasterly wind flow will bring partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated light rains over Batanes and Babuyan islands.

Meanwhile, the easterlies or winds coming from the Pacific Ocean, will continue to bring humid weather and warm temperature over the eastern section of Southern Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao, PAGASA weather specialist Loriedin dela Cruz said.

The easterlies will bring cloudy skies with scattered rain showers and thunderstorms over Biliran, Eastern Samar, Leyte, Northern Samar, Samar, Southern Leyte, Bohol, Cebu, Negros Oriental, Siquijor, Agusan del Norte, Agusan del Sur, Surigao del Norte, Surigao del Sur, and Dinagat Islands.

PAGASA warned those in Eastern and Central Visayas, and Caraga Region to be alert against possible flooding or landslide over low-lying and mountainous areas from severe thunderstorm.

Metro Manila and the rest of the country will experience partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rain showers due to localized thunderstoms.

The public should also be alert for possible flash floods or landslides during severe thunderstorms that may occur in the afternoon or evening.

PAGASA has not issued a gale warning but it advised sea vessels of moderate to occasionally rough seas over the coastlines of Northern Luzon and eastern section of Central and Southern Luzon, and Visayas due to moderate to occasionally strong winds coming from the northeast.

Meanwhile, only slight to moderate seas will prevail over the rest of the country.
