A weak southwest monsoon may bring rain to parts of Luzon including Metro Manila Sunday, even as state weather forecasters said parts of Mindanao may also expect rain.

PAGASA also said strong to gale-force winds may still affect the seaboards of Northern Luzon, even though Typhoon Huaning (Soulik) has left.

“Metro Manila, Ilocos region, Cordillera, Cagayan Valley, Central Luzon, Mimaropa, Western Visayas, Caraga and Davao region will experience cloudy skies with light to moderate rain showers and thunderstorms,” PAGASA said in its 5 a.m. bulletin.

It added the rest of the country will be “partly cloudy to cloudy with isolated rain showers or thunderstorms.”

Also, it said moderate to strong winds from the southwest to south will prevail over the western section of Luzon and coming from the southeast to south over the rest of Northern Luzon.

The coastal waters along these areas will be moderate to rough, it added.

Elsewhere, winds will be light to moderate coming from the southeast with slight to moderate seas.

Gale warning

PAGASA also said strong to gale-force winds associated with the southwest monsoon may affect the seaboards of Northern Luzon.

These included Ilocos Norte, Cagayan, Isabela, Ilocos Sur and La Union.

“Fishing boats and other small seacrafts are alerted against moderate to rough seas,” it said.  — ELR, GMA News
