Scattered rains to prevail over PH

MANILA -- Scattered rains will prevail over the country on Tuesday night, the Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) has said.

In its latest weather bulletin, PAGASA said the Cagayan Valley Region, Cordillera Administrative Region, Bicol Region, Eastern Visayas, and the provinces of Aurora and Quezon will have cloudy skies with scattered rains due to the northeast monsoon.

Metro Manila and the other parts of Luzon and Visayas will also have partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rains caused by the northeast monsoon.

Mindanao will experience partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rain showers due to local thunderstorms. The weather bureau cautioned of possible flash floods or landslides in the region due to light to moderate with occasional heavy rains.

As of 3 p.m., a low-pressure area (LPA) was estimated 425 kilometers east of Guiuan, Eastern Samar.

Northern and Central Luzon and the eastern and western sections of Southern Luzon, Eastern Visayas, and the province of Surigao del Norte will also have strong to gale winds, causing coastal waters to be rough to very rough.

The rest of the country will have light to moderate winds, causing slight to moderate coastal waters. (PNA)
