Fair weather conditions may be experienced across the country in the upcoming days, Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) said Sunday, Oct. 17.


Weather specialist Ezra Bulquerin said there is no weather disturbance that might affect the country in the next few days.

“So it is possible to have fair weather conditions in the next three days here in Metro Manila and throughout the country,” Bulquerin said.

On the other hand, the state weather bureau said the northeasterly windflow would be affecting the extreme northern Luzon.

Based on the latest weather bulletin, Metro Manila and the rest of the country may have partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rain showers or thunderstorms due to the prevailing weather system and localized thunderstorms.

State meteorologists warned against possible flash floods or landslides that may occur during severe thunderstorms.

Meanwhile, a gale warning remains hoisted over the northern seaboard of Northern Luzon, particularly in the northern coast of Ilocos Norte, Batanes and Babuyan Islands.

Strong to gale force winds associated with the northeasterly surface windflow are expected over these areas, PAGASA said.

It added that sea conditions may range between rough to very rough, with waves reaching 2.8 to 4.5 meters in height.

“Fishing boats and other small sea craft are advised not to venture out into the sea while larger sea vessels are alerted against big waves,” PAGASA said.
