The Surge of NORTHEAST MONSOON (AMIHAN) enhanced by the dissipating TROPICAL DEPRESSION KAMMURI (TISOY) outside of the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) – will continue to bring partly cloudy to mostly cloudy skies, cooler conditions with passing light to at times heavy rain showers and possible thunderstorms across BATANES AND BABUYAN ISLAND GROUP AND NORTHERN LUZON. Winds will be fresh to strong gale of 35 to 80 kph, making the seas moderate to rough/extremely high seas (2.0 to 10.0 meters) and is treacherous for all types of sea vessels to navigate on.

THE REST OF THE COUNTRY will have clear skies with chances of isolated to scattered rain showers and thunderstorms in some areas especially in the afternoon or evening.
