It will be more frequent along the Eastern Sections of the affected areas. Fresh breeze to gale-force winds (35 to 65 km/hr) will blow from the northeast, making the seas moderate to very rough/high seas (2.0 to 7.5 meters) and dangerous to all types of sea vessels.
Meanwhile, a SURFACE TROUGH (formerly the remnants of LPA 01W/Amang) will bring partly cloudy to cloudy (overcast) skies with isolated to scattered rain showers and thunderstorms across EASTERN VISAYAS and MINDANAO.
THE REST OF THE COUNTRY will be clear to mostly cloudy skies with isolated rain showers or possible thunderstorms in some areas.
