Wednesday, December 18, 2013
MANILA -- Parts of the country will be rainy on Wednesday due to two weather systems, state weather forecasters said.
Extreme north Luzon is affected by the tail-end of a cold front while a trough of a low pressure area (LPA) affects Eastern Mindanao, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) said in its 5 a.m. bulletin.
"Batanes, Calayan, Aurora, Quezon, Bicol Region and Caraga will experience cloudy skies with light to moderate rain showers and thunderstorms," Pagasa said.
It added, "Metro Manila and the rest of the country will be partly cloudy to cloudy with isolated rain showers or thunderstorms."
Meanwhile, moderate to strong winds blowing from the southeast to northeast will prevail over Luzon and Visayas. Pagasa said that the coastal waters along these areas will be moderate to rough.
"Elsewhere, winds will be light to moderate coming from the east to northeast with slight to moderate seas," it added. (SFP/Sunnex)
