MANILA — The country will continue to be storm-free for the next two to three days, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical ServicesAdministration (PAGASA) said Sunday.
PAGASA weather forecaster Alvin Pura said the agency is not anticipating any cyclone to affect the countryuntil Wednesday.
Pura said parts of the Visayas and Mindanao will continue to experience cloudy skies with light to moderate rains and isolated thunderstorms because of the tail-end of a cold front, the front boundary of two air masses which produces clouds and rain.
Luzon, on the other hand, will have partly cloudy to cloudy skies with passing light rains due to the effects of the northeast monsoon.
Pura said the rest of the country, including MetroManila, will have partly cloudy to cloudy skies with possible isolated light rains.
Moderate to strong winds blowing from the northeast will prevail over Luzon and the Visayas and the coastal waters along these areas will be moderate to rough. Elsewhere, winds will be light to moderate coming from the northeast with slight to moderate seas.
The weather bureau also issued gale warning as strong to gale force winds affect the northern and eastern seaboards of Luzon and the eastern seaboard of the Visayas and Mindanao due to the presence of the northeast monsoon.
“Fisherfolks and those using small seacraft are advised not to venture out over the said seaboards,” it warned.
