There are no developing Tropical Disturbances (LPAs) across the Western Pacific Ocean, the Philippine Sea and the South China Sea at this time.
A new surge of the NORTHEAST MONSOON (AMIHAN) will once again affect BATANES & BABUYAN ISLAND GROUP AND NORTHERN LUZON. Partly cloudy to cloudy skies, cooler conditions with passing light to at times moderate to heavy rain showers and thunderstorms will be expected. The winds will be fresh breeze to near-gale force of 35 to 55 km/hr, making the seas moderate to very rough (2.0 to 5.5 meters) and dangerous to all types of sea vessels.
WIND CONVERGENCE will continue to affect the BICOL REGION, SOUTHERN TAGALOG PROVINCES including METRO MANILA, MINDORO, AND MARINDUQUE. Mostly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated to scattered rain showers and thunderstorms will be expected across these areas.
Meanwhile, a SURFACE TROUGH will also bring mostly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated to scattered rain showers and thunderstorms across SOUTHERN MINDANAO including BANGSAMORO AND ZAMBOANGA DEL SUR.
THE REST OF THE COUNTRY will have clear skies with partly cloudy and some chances of isolated to scattered rain showers or thunderstorms in some areas especially in the afternoon or evening.
**Residents are advised to be on alert for possible flashfloods, landslides or lightning strikes during the occurrence of Severe Thunderstorms.
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.
