MANILA – Most of Luzon will have overcast skies and some rains on Saturday due to the northeast monsoon or “amihan’.

In its 4 a.m. weather bulletin, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) said Cagayan Valley, the Cordillera region, Aurora, Quezon, Oriental Mindoro, Marinduque, and Romblon will get cloudy skies with rains, also due to the “amihan.”

The bureau also forecast cloudy skies with scattered rain showers and thunderstorms in the Bicol Region, Northern Samar, and Palawan due to the shear line.

Metro Manila and the rest of Luzon will have partly cloudy to cloudy skies with light rains due to the “amihan.”

The rest of the country will experience partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rain showers or thunderstorms brought by localized thunderstorms.

Winds in Luzon and Visayas will be moderate to strong and headed northeast, resulting in moderate to rough seas.
