The trough of LPA affects Visayas, Mindanao, the Bicol Region, and the southern portion of Palawan, including Kalayaan Islands, today, bringing “cloudy skies with scattered rainshowers and thunderstorms.” Due to this weather condition, “possible flooding or landslides due to moderate to heavy rains” may occur.

Cagayan Valley, Cordillera Administrative Region, the rest of MIMAROPA, Quezon, and Aurora will have “cloudy skies with rains” due to the Northeast Monsoon. Residents in these areas should also be alert for “possible flash floods or landslides due to moderate with at times heavy rains.”

The Northeast Monsoon will also affect Metro Manila and the rest of Luzon. However, these areas will only have “partly cloudy to cloudy skies with light rains,” bringing “no significant impact” on the land areas.
