Pagasa: Anticipate Rain in Extreme Northern Luzon due to Amihan

Pagasa says rains to prevail over PH on Saturday

MANILA, Philippines — The extreme northern Luzon will see rains on Saturday brought by the northeast monsoon, locally known as amihan, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) said in its morning advisory.

Meanwhile, the easterlies, or warm winds from the Pacific Ocean, will also bring rains over the rest of the country.

“Patuloy pa rin ang epekto ng northeast monsoon, o ‘yung malamig na hanging amihan, dito sa area ng extreme northern Luzon,” said Pagasa weather specialist Daniel James Villamil.

With that, the state weather bureau said that Batanes and Babuyan Islands will have cloudy skies with light rains due to amihan.

It added that the same weather system will bring partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated light rains over Ilocos Region, Cordillera Administrative Region, and the rest of Cagayan Valley.

Pagasa said that amihan would not have a significant impact on the areas affected.

Meanwhile, the easterlies would bring overcast skies with scattered rain showers and thunderstorms over Bicol Region, Northern Samar, Eastern Samar, and Samar.

Metro Manila and the rest of the country, on the other hand, may expect generally fair weather with chances of slightly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rain showers or thunderstorms also due to easterlies.

There have been no gale warning alerts raised in any part of the country, Pagasa added.
