MANILA – Several areas in the country will experience rain showers due to the shear line and the northeast monsoon or “amihan”, the weather bureau said Friday.
In its 4 a.m. weather bulletin, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) said Quezon, the Bicol Region, Mimaropa, Caraga, and the Visayas will have scattered rain showers and thunderstorms caused by the shear line.
Rains will also prevail over Metro Manila, Cagayan Valley, the Cordillera region, the rest of Calabarzon, Aurora, Nueva Ecija, and Bulacan due to the northeast monsoon.
PAGASA said these areas might experience flash floods or landslides due to moderate to at times heavy rains.
Light rains, also caused by the northeast monsoon, will be experienced over the rest of Luzon.
The rest of Mindanao, on the other hand, will have isolated rain showers caused by localized thunderstorms.
The whole country will still experience moderate to strong winds and moderate to rough seas.
Rough to very rough seas will prevail over the northern, western, and eastern seaboards of Northern Luzon, the eastern seaboards of Central Luzon, the eastern seaboards of Southern Luzon, and the eastern seaboards of the Visayas.
Fishing boats and other small sea vessels are advised not to venture into the sea, and larger sea vessels are alerted against big waves, PAGASA said. (PNA)
