MANILA – Most parts of the country will have cloudy skies and some rains on Saturday, with some areas seen to experience stormy weather due to Typhoon Henry.
In its 5 a.m. tropical cyclone bulletin, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) said the center of the eye of “Henry” was last estimated at 360 km. east-northeast of Itbayat, Batanes and is slowly moving northward.
It has maximum sustained winds of 150 kph near the center and gustiness of up to 185 kph, and is forecast to have left the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) by 2 a.m. on Sunday.
Tropical Cyclone Wind Signal No. 2 has been hoisted over Batanes while Signal No. 1 has been raised over the Babuyan Islands and the northeastern portion of mainland Cagayan.
Meanwhile, PAGASA forecast cloudy skies with scattered rain showers and thunderstorms in Metro Manila, the Ilocos region, the rest of Cagayan Valley, the Cordillera region, Central Luzon, Calabarzon, and Occidental Mindoro, brought by the trough of “Henry” and the southwest monsoon or “habagat”.
The rest of the country will experience partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rain showers or thunderstorms.
