MANILA -- Bicol region and Eastern Visayas will be cloudy with light to moderate rain and thunderstorms as the tail-end of a cold front continues to affect these regions.

The state weather bureau Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) said in its 5 a.m. bulletin on Thursday that Metro Manila and the rest of Luzon will have cloudy skies with light rain.

Meanwhile, Pagasa said that the rest of the country will be partly cloudy to cloudy with isolated rain or thunderstorms.

On the other hand, WeatherManila, an independent weather forecast source posted in its Facebook page on Wednesday that a possible low pressure area might be a tropical depression by next week and might head to Samar.

Pagasa also said that moderate to strong winds blowing from the northeast will prevail over Luzon and Eastern Visayas and the coastal waters along these areas will be moderate to rough while elsewhere in the country, winds will be light to moderate coming from the northeast to north with slight to moderate seas.

The state weather bureau also issued a gale warning over the seaboards of Luzon due to the surge of the Northeast Monsoon (Hanging Amihan).

"Strong to gale force winds is expected to affect the seaboards of Northern Luzon and the eastern seaboards of Central and Southern Luzon," Pagasa said.

It added, "Fishing boats and other small seacraft are advised not to venture out into the sea while larger sea vessels are alerted against big waves." (SFP/Sunnex)
