Some parts of Luzon and Visayas are expected to have rainy weather in the next 24 hours due to the prevalence of the northeast monsoon, locally called “amihan,” the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) said on Monday afternoon, Feb. 7.

Cloudy skies with rains may prevail over Aurora, Quezon, Cagayan Valley, Bicol region, and Eastern Visayas.

PAGASA advised the public to stay vigilant against possible flash floods or landslides due to the occurrence of moderate to at times heavy rains.

The amihan may also bring partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated light rains over Metro Manila and the rest of Luzon and Visayas.

Meanwhile, the easterlies, or the warm winds coming from the Pacific Ocean, and localized thunderstorms may cause partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rain showers over Mindanao.

PAGASA warned that severe thunderstorms could also trigger flash floods or landslides.
