Surge of the NORTHEAST MONSOON (AMIHAN) will continue to bring partly cloudy to cloudy (overcast) skies, cooler conditions with occasional monsoon rains and a few thunderstorms across LUZON including NORTHERN PALAWAN MINDORO, MARINDUQUE, ROMBLON, AND EASTERN VISAYAS. 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 and thunderstorms across REST OF VISAYAS, REST OF PALAWAN including KALAYAAN ISLAND GROUP, SULU ARCHIPELAGO, AND NORTHERN AND EASTERN MINDANAO.
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.
