MANILA -- The northeast monsoon affecting Luzon will cause light rains over most parts of the island, the weather bureau said on Saturday.

The Cagayan Valley and Cordillera regions, as well as Aurora province, will have cloudy skies with light rains, while Metro Manila and the rest of Luzon will experience partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated light rains, according to the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA).

The Bicol region and eastern Visayas will experience cloudy skies with scattered rain showers and thunderstorms due to the tail-end of a cold front affecting the eastern section of southern Luzon.

The rest of the country will have partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rain showers caused by localized thunderstorms.

Meanwhile, strong winds will blow over the northern and eastern sections of the country. Coastal waters along these areas will be rough.

Elsewhere, winds will be moderate to strong with moderate to rough seas, PAGASA said. (PNA)
