Cloudy Skies and Isolated Rains Forecasted Across the Philippines

Manila – Most regions in the Philippines are set to experience partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rain showers, as forecasted by the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) on Sunday.

According to Philippines News Agency, areas including Masbate, Sorsogon, Visayas, Northern Mindanao, Caraga, and Davao Region will have cloudy skies with scattered rain showers and thunderstorms. This weather condition is attributed to the shear line or trough of a low-pressure area, estimated at 465 kilometers east of Surigao City, Surigao del Norte.

Cagayan Valley, the rest of the Bicol Region, and Apayao are expected to have cloudy skies with light rains. Meanwhile, Metro Manila and the rest of Luzon will witness partly cloudy to cloudy skies with light rains due to the northeast monsoon or amihan.

Parts of Mindanao will also have partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rain showers or thunderstorms. Regions in Luzon and the eastern sections of Visayas are forecasted to experience strong winds from the northeast with rough coastal waters. The rest of the country will see light to moderate winds blowing from the northeast to north, accompanied by slight to moderate seas.
