“Elsewhere, winds will be light to moderate coming from the east to northeast with slight to moderate seas,” PAGASA also said.
PAGASA noted strong to gale-force winds associated with surge of the northeast monsoon or ‘amihan’ may affect Northern Luzon’s seaboard covering Calayan and Babuyan islands as well as Batanes, Cagayan, Ilocos Norte, Isabela, Ilocos Sur, La Union and Pangasinan provinces.
