MANILA -- Many areas throughout the Philippines will likely experience light to moderate rain as two weather systems affect the country, state weather bureau said on Tuesday.

Zamboanga peninsula, Samar, Leyte, Aurora, Quezon, Palawan as well as the Cagayan Valley and Bicol regions will be cloudy with light to moderate rain, said the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa).

Pagasa said that the trough of a low pressure area (LPA) affects Southern Mindanao while the Northeast Monsoon (Hanging Amiham) hovers over extreme Northern Luzon.

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

The state weather agency said that while winds will be light to moderate from the east to northeast will have slight to moderate seas, moderate to strong winds coming from the Southeast to Northeast will prevail over Luzon and Visayas.

Coastal waters along Luzon and Visayas will be moderate to rough, it said. (SFP/Sunnex)
