There will be no weather disturbance that will affect the country in the next two to three days, according to the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA).
PAGASA weather specialist Gener Quitlong said the southwest monsoon or “habagat” will be the only dominant weather system that may affect the extreme portion of Northern Luzon, he pointed out.
Batanes and Babuyan group of isands will have cloudy skies with isolated rain showers and thunderstorms.
Meanwhile, Metro Manila and the rest of the country will have partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rain showers due to localized thunderstorms.
Quitlong said a gale warning remains in effect as sea travel remains risky over some seaboards of the country.
Fisherfolk are prevented from setting sail into the coastlines of Pangasinan, Ilocos Sur, Ilocos Norte, La Union, Batanes, Babuyan, Calayan, Cagayan, and Isabela due to rough seas that will be dangerous for small sea crafts.
Meanwhile, the rest of the country will have slight to moderate seas.
Throughout the week, PAGASA said Ilocos Region, Cordillera Administrative Region, Batanes, Babuyan, Zambales, Bataan, and Occidental Mindoro will have cloudy skies with scattered rain showers and thunderstorms due to habagat.
The rest of the country will experience partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rain showers or thunderstorms mostly in the afternoon or evening.
