Rain showers to dampen Luzon due to ‘amihan’

MANILA – The northeast monsoon or “amihan” will bring rain showers across Luzon on Wednesday, the weather bureau said.

Rains will prevail over Cagayan Valley, Apayao, Kalinga, Mountain Province, and Ifugao.

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

Excluding Palawan, the rest of Luzon will experience light rains, but no significant impact is expected.

Palawan, the Visayas, and Mindanao will have isolated rain showers caused by localized thunderstorms.

Flash floods or landslides are possible during severe thunderstorms.

Moderate to strong winds and moderate to rough seas will prevail over Luzon and the eastern section of the Visayas and Mindanao.

Rough to very rough seas are forecast over the northern and eastern seaboards of Luzon, and the western seaboard of Northern and Central Luzon.

PAGASA advised fishing boats and other small sea vessels not to venture into the sea, and larger sea vessels have been alerted against big waves.

Elsewhere, PAGASA said winds would be light to moderate with slight to moderate seas. (PNA)
