The Surge of Northeast Monsoon (Amihan) continues to blow bringing cool and blustery wind conditions with partly cloudy periods, some drizzles to isolated rain showers across Northern and Eastern Luzon, much of Visayas including the Northernmost reaches of Mindanao. Strong breeze of 40 to 50 kph with significant wave heights of 3.0 to 4.0 m (rough) will prevail along the seaboards of Northern and Eastern Luzon, particularly over Eastern Visayas and Northern Sulu Sea region making the seas of the mentioned areas treacherous for all types of sea vessels.
Meanwhile, an approaching Trough ahead of a Weak Low Pressure Area will bring mostly cloudy periods with scattered to widespread rain showers and thunderstorms across Eastern Mindanao. Moderate to strong breeze of 30 to 45 kph with significant wave heights of 2.0 to 3.0 m (moderate to rough) will prevail along the seaboards of Eastern Mindanao making the seas of the mentioned area treacherous for small to medium-sized sea vessels to navigate on.
The rest of the Philippines will have partly to mostly cloudy with isolated rain showers or thunderstorms in some areas in the afternoon or late evening hours.
Here is the latest daily graphical satellite analysis showing all tropical systems in and around the Philippines and the Western Pacific Basin. This is valid for the next 24 hours.
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.
