There are no developing Tropical Disturbances (LPAs) across the Western Pacific Ocean, the Philippine Sea and the South China Sea at this time.
Meanwhile, SOUTHERLIES (SOUTHERLY WINDFLOW) has developed due to the close proximity of a passing Frontal System just North of BATANES & BABUYAN ISLAND GROUP – this will bring partly to mostly cloudy periods with isolated to scattered light to at times moderate rain showers or thunderstorm across NORTHERN, EASTERN & CENTRAL LUZON, including the BICOL REGION.
THE REST OF THE COUNTRY will have clear to partly cloudy skies, with isolated rain showers or possible thunderstorms developing in places.
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.
