MANILA -- While the Northeast Monsoon (Hanging Amihan) continues to affect Luzon and Visayas, state weather forecasters said Friday that the Caraga region and Davao will likely experience light to moderate rain showers and thunderstorms.

Meanwhile, in its 5 a.m. bulletin, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) said that Metro Manila and the rest of Luzon and of Visayas will be partly cloudy to cloudy with isolated light rain.

"The rest of Mindanao will be partly cloudy to cloudy with isolated rain showers or thunderstorms," it added.

Pagasa also said, "Moderate to strong winds blowing from the northeast will prevail over Luzon and Visayas and coming from the northeast to north over Mindanao. The coastal waters throughout the archipelago will be moderate to rough."

Still due to Amihan, the state weather bureau raised a gale warning over the seaboards of Luzon, the eastern seaboard of Visayas and the northern and eastern seaboards of Mindanao.

Pagasa cautioned fishing boats and other small sea crafts not to go out into the sea. Larger sea vessels were also alerted against big waves. (SFP/Sunnex)
