MANILA – The shear line affecting the eastern section of Southern Luzon and the easterlies affecting Visayas and Mindanao are expected to bring scattered or isolated rain showers in most parts of the country, the weather bureau said Friday.

In its 4 a.m. bulletin, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) said the two weather systems will bring cloudy skies with scattered rain showers and thunderstorms over Aurora, Quezon, Oriental Mindoro, Marinduque, Romblon, Bicol Region, Aklan, Capiz, Northern Samar, Eastern Samar, Dinagat Islands, Surigao del Norte, Surigao del Sur, and Davao Oriental.

Meanwhile, the northeast monsoon will bring cloudy skies with light rains over the Cordillera Administrative Region, Cagayan including Babuyan Islands, Isabela, and Quirino, as well as partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated light rains over the Ilocos Region and the rest of Cagayan Valley.

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