Generally fair weather will prevail over most parts of the country this weekend while the northeast monsoon affects the extreme northern part of Luzon bringing light rains in the area, the state weather bureau said.

In its weather update issued Friday morning, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) said good weather with partly cloudy to cloudy skies will be felt across the country including Metro Manila.

PAGASA weather specialist Chris Perez also said that no weather disturbance is expected to hit the country in the next two days.

Meanwhile, the northeast monsoon or “amihan” will continue to affect extreme Northern Luzon and will bring partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated light rains over Batanes and Babuyan Group of Islands.

In Palawan, Visayas, and Mindanao, partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rainshowers will be felt due to localized thunderstorms.

PAGASA advised residents on possible flash floods during severe thunderstorms.

While no gale warning was raised, the state weather bureau warned fisherfolks that coastal waters on seaboards of extreme Northern Luzon will be moderate to occasionally rough due to the surge of amihan with wave height of 0.6 to 2.1 meters.

While coastal waters on seaboards in the rest of the country is generally moderate.
