A renewed surge of the NORTHEAST MONSOON (AMIHAN) will bring partly cloudy to cloudy (overcast) skies, cooler conditions with passing occasional rain showers across EXTREME NORTHERN AND EASTERN LUZON, and THE BICOL REGION. Fresh breeze to Gale-Force Winds of 35 to 70 km/hr from the northeast will blow, making the seas moderate to very rough (high seas) [2.0 to 7.5 meters] and dangerous to all types of sea vessels.
Meanwhile, NORTHEASTERLIES (Northeasterly Surface Windflow/Weak Amihan) will continue to bring moderate to fresh breeze with partly to mostly cloudy skies, passing isolated to scattered rain showers or thunderstorms across CALABARZON, METROPOLITAN MANILA, MIMAROPA, VISAYAS, NORTHEASTERN MINDANAO, AND SULU ARCHIPELAGO including KALAYAAN ISLAND GROUP.
THE REST OF THE COUNTRY will continue to be clear to mostly cloudy skies with isolated to scattered rain showers and thunderstorms developing later.
Important note: In the infrared (IR) satellite image shown above: BLUE areas indicate Clear Skies with a Few Clouds; GREEN = Partly to Mostly Cloudy Skies; YELLOW = Mostly Cloudy to Hazy Skies with Possible Slight-to-Moderate Rainfall; and RED = Thunderstorms with Moderate to Heavy to sometimes Extreme Rainfall.
