Forecast Weather Conditions

The Northeast Monsoon continues to affect Luzon. Also, the Low-Pressure (LPA) Area is 195 km Northeast of Surigao City, Surigao del Norte or 160 km East of Tacloban City, Leyte (11.2°N, 126.5°E). Based on the Tropical Cyclone (TC)-Threat Potential, the LPA within the Philippine Areas of Responsibility (PAR) will still have a very low likelihood of transforming into a Tropical Cyclone. However, rainy weather will still occur in most regions of the country.

Visayas, Caraga, Northern Mindanao, Bicol Region, Quezon, Romblon, and Marinduque will have “cloudy skies with scattered rainshowers and thunderstorms” due to the LPA. This weather condition will bring “possible flash floods or landslides due to moderate to heavy with, at times, intense rains.” Residents from these areas should be alert in case these calamities occur.

The rest of Mindanao and the rest of MIMAROPA will be experiencing “partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rainshowers or thunderstorms” brought by the localized thunderstorms. The people living in these regions should also be prepared for “possible flash floods or landslides during severe thunderstorms.”

The Northeast Monsoon that continues to affect Luzon will bring varying effects to areas. Cagayan Valley, Cordillera Administrative Region, and Aurora will have “cloudy skies with rains,” bringing “possible flash floods or landslides due to moderate to, at times, heavy rains.” On the other hand, Metro Manila and the rest of Luzon will only experience “partly cloudy to at times cloudy skies with light rains,” bringing “no significant impact” to the land areas.
