The northeast monsoon or “amihan” may continue to bring cloudy skies with light rains over Northern and Central Luzon on Wednesday.
The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) said the “amihan” may affect Aurora, Quezon, Marinduque, Oriental Mindoro, Batanes, Cagayan, Isabela, Nueva Vizcaya, Quirino, Abra, Benguet, Ifugao, Kalinga, Mountain Province, Apayao, Masbate, Catanduanes, Sorsogon, Albay, Camarines Sur, and Camarines Norte.
Metro Manila and the rest of Luzon may also experience partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated light “amihan” rains.
Meanwhile, localized thunderstorms may prevail across Visayas and Mindanao. Partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rain showers may affect these regions.
PAGASA advised those in these areas of possible flooding or landslides in the event of severe thunderstorms occurring in the afternoon or evening.
Due to the resurgence of “amihan,” a gale warning remains in effect on Tuesday as “rough to very rough” sea conditions may prevail across the northern coastline of Luzon.
Fishing boats and small sea crafts were advised not to venture out into the sea, while larger sea vessels were asked to remain alert against big waves.
The rest of the country will experience slight to moderate sea conditions.
