Cloudiness, rains likely till Saturday

MANILA-- Cloudy skies with light to moderate rains and isolated thunderstorms are possible over Eastern Visayas, Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) said in its 24-hour forecast released Friday afternoon (March 10).

The tail-end of a cold front is affecting Eastern Visayas, noted PAGASA.

PAGASA also said partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rain showers or thunderstorms would be experienced over Mindanao and rest of the Visayas.

Partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated light rains would prevail over Metro Manila and rest of Luzon, PAGASA continued.

The northeast monsoon or 'amihan' is affecting Northern and Central Luzon, PAGASA said.

According to PAGASA, moderate to strong winds from the east to southeast will prevail over Northern Luzon while winds from the northeast will prevail over rest of Luzon, the Visayas and Eastern Mindanao.

Coastal waters in those areas would be moderate to rough, said PAGASA.

"Elsewhere, winds will be light to moderate coming from the northeast with slight to moderate seas," PAGASA added.
