Bicol Region, Eastern Visayas, Northern Mindanao, Caraga, Davao Region, Quezon, Marinduque, and Romblon will have “cloudy skies with scattered rainshowers and thunderstorms” due to the Shear Line and trough of LPA. This weather condition will cause “possible flash floods or landslides due to moderate to, at times, heavy rains.”

The Northeast Monsoon continues to affect several parts of Luzon and will bring various effects depending on the areas. Cagayan Valley, Cordillera Administrative Region, and Aurora will experience “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 have “partly cloudy to at times cloudy skies with light rains,” bringing “no significant impact” on the land areas.

The rest of the country will have “partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rainshowers or thunderstorms” due to the localized thunderstorms. Residents from these areas should also prepare for “possible flash floods or landslides during severe thunderstorms.”
