EASTERLIES (aka. Easterly Trade Winds) will bring cooler mostly cloudy to overcast skies with isolated to scattered rain showers or thunderstorms across Northern, Central and Eastern Sections of Luzon. Fresh breeze to strong breeze of 30 to 45 kph with significant wave heights of 1.5 to 2.5 m (Moderate to slightly rough seas) are expected to prevail along the northern and eastern seaboards of Luzon making the seas of the mentioned areas risky to small-sized sea vessels.
Meanwhile, NORTHEASTERLIES (aka. Northeasterly Trade Winds) will bring partly to mostly cloudy skies with isolated to scattered rain showers and thunderstorms.
The REST OF THE PHILIPPINES will have partly to mostly cloudy with isolated rain showers or thunderstorms in some areas especially in the afternoon or late evening hours.
