MANILA – Partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rain showers will prevail over most parts of the country, but some areas will experience cloudy skies with scattered rains due to the shear line and the trough of a low-pressure area (LPA), the weather bureau said Saturday.

In its 4 a.m. weather bulletin, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) said the shear line affecting the northern section of Northern Luzon will bring cloudy skies with scattered rain showers and thunderstorms over Batanes and Cagayan, including the Babuyan Islands.

Cloudy skies with scattered rain showers and thunderstorms will also be felt over Eastern Visayas and Caraga due to the trough of the LPA.

PAGASA warned that flash floods or landslides may occur in these areas due to moderate to at times heavy rains.

Metro Manila and the rest of the country will have partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rain showers or thunderstorms due to localized thunderstorms.

Flash floods or landslides may also occur during severe thunderstorms, the weather bureau said.

Northern Luzon will have moderate to strong winds with moderate to rough coastal waters, while the rest of the archipelago will have light to moderate winds with slight to moderate seas.

The temperature in Metro Manila will range from 24°C to 32°C; Baguio City, 17°C to 24°C; Laoag City, 24°C to 32°C; Legazpi City, 25°C to 32°C; Metro Cebu, 26°C to 32°C; Puerto Princesa City, 25°C to 32°C; and Metro Davao, 25°C to 33°C. (PNA)
