MANILA — The Northeast Monsoon or “Hangin Amihan” will continue to bring in rains to Northern and Central Luzon, according to the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA).

In its 5 a.m. weather bulletin, PAGASA said that Bicol Region, Visayas and the provinces of Aurora, Quezon, Marinduque and Romblon will experience cloudy skies with light to moderate rainshowers and thunderstorms.

The state-run weather bureau also said that Cagayan Valley, Cordillera, Ilocos region and the rest of Central Luzon will have cloudy skies with light rains.

For Metro Manila and the rest of the country, however, it forecasts that the weather will be partly cloudy to cloudy with isolated rainshowers and thunderstorms.

On the other hand, PAGASA noted that as of 4 a.m. Friday, the low pressure area (LPA) was estimated based on all available data at 1230 km east of Mindanao (7.2°N, 137.0°E).

Meanwhile, it issued a gale warning in the Northern and Eastern Seaboards of Luzon making the waters unfit for travel.

“Fishing boats and other small seacrafts are advised not to venture out into the sea while larger sea vessels are alerted against big waves,” it warned.
