MANILA – The easterlies will bring cloudy skies with scattered rain showers and thunderstorms over the Bicol Region, Northern Samar, Eastern Samar, and Samar, the weather bureau said Saturday.

Flash floods or landslides may occur in these areas due to moderate to at times heavy rains, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) said in its 4 a.m. bulletin.

Meanwhile, the northeast monsoon or “amihan” will bring cloudy skies with light rains over Batanes and the Babuyan Islands, as well as partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated light rains over the Ilocos and Cordillera regions, 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, PAGASA said.

Moderate to strong winds and moderate to rough coastal waters will continue to be felt over extreme Northern Luzon, while the rest of the archipelago will have light to moderate winds and slight to moderate seas.

The temperature in Metro Manila will range from 24°C to 32°C; Baguio City, 15°C to 25°C; Laoag City, 22°C to 31°C; Legazpi City, 24°C to 30°C; Metro Cebu, 26°C to 31°C; Puerto Princesa City, 26°C to 32°C; and Metro Davao, 24°C to 32°C. (PNA)
