Cloudy skies expected in Mindanao; light rains, wind flow to affect most regions

Cloudy skies with isolated showers will prevail on parts of Mindanao as easterlies or the winds coming from the Pacific Ocean continues to affect the region, the state weather bureau said.

The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) said in its weather update issued Tuesday morning that easterlies will bring partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rain showers or thunderstorms over Dinagat Island and Surigao provinces.

The bureau warned residents in the area on possible flooding during severe thunderstorms.

Meanwhile, PAGASA weather specialist Ezra Bulquerin said that residents in most parts of the country could expect a generally fair weather as the northeasterly surface wind flow stretch across Luzon and Visayas.

The said wind flow will bring partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated light rains over the regions of Bicol and Eastern Visayas, and on the provinces of Cagayan, Isabela, Aurora, and Quezon.

In Metro Manila and the rest of the country, residents will experience partly cloudy skies also because of the surface wind flow.

No gale warning was also raised but the state weather bureau warned that coastal waters on the northern and eastern seaboards of Luzon will be moderate to occasionally rough.

Meanwhile, coastal waters on the rest of the seaboards in the country will be slight to moderate.
