MANILA - The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) reported on Saturday that most areas of the Philippines, including Metro Manila, will see partly cloudy to cloudy skies accompanied by isolated rain showers or thunderstorms as a result of the easterlies. This weather condition is expected to affect various parts of the country throughout the day.

According to Philippines News Agency, the northeast monsoon is also influencing weather conditions in extreme Northern Luzon, particularly over Batanes and the Babuyan Islands, where residents can expect partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated light rains. The weather bureau further forecasts that moderate to strong winds will blow over the eastern sections of the Philippines, causing moderate to rough coastal waters. Meanwhile, the rest of the archipelago will experience light to moderate winds with slight to moderate seas.
