Most parts of the country will experience generally fair weather this weekend, with no severe weather disturbance expected to enter the country in the next three days, the state weather bureau said Friday.


The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) said the tail-end of the frontal system will continue to affect the eastern sections of Southern Luzon and Visayas while the northeast monsoon or “amihan” will be felt in the rest of Luzon.

The frontal system will bring cloudy skies with scattered rain showers and isolated thunderstorms in Bicol Region, Quezon, Marinduque, Romblon, Mindoro provinces and Samar provinces.

The state-run weather agency issued a warning for possible flash floods or landslides during moderate with at times heavy rains.

Cloudy skies with light rains will be experienced in Cagayan Valley, Apayao, Kalinga, Mountain Province, Ifugao, and Aurora due to amihan.

“Sa Metro Manila at yung nalalabing bahagi ng bansa, fair weather pa rin yung magiging panahon natin (In Metro Manila and the rest of the country will continue to have fair weather),” said Ezra Bulquirin, PAGASA weather specialist.

Bulquirin said Metro Manila and the rest of the country will have partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated light rains in the next 24 hours.

Gale warning has been raised in the eastern seaboards of southern Luzon and Visayas, and in the eastern coasts of northern and central Luzon due to rough to very rough sea conditions.

Due to amihan, Baguio City will continue to experience cold days ahead with temperatures ranging between 13 to 24 degrees Celsius.

Fishing boats and other small seacraft were advised not to venture out into the sea while larger sea vessels are alerted against big waves.
