Sea travels will be risky on the northern seaboard of Northern Luzon and the eastern Luzon and the Visayas due to very rough seas associated with the surge of the northeast monsoon.

Meanwhile, the northeast monsoon is affecting northern Luzon.

Ilocos, Cordillera, and Cagayan Valley regions would have partly cloudy skies with isolated light rains caused by the northeast monsoon.

Metro Manila and the rest of the country would have partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rain showers due to localized thunderstorms.

Temperature in Metro Manila ranges from 23-32 degrees Celsius; Tuguegarao City 23-31; Baguio City 14-24; Metro Cebu 25-31; and Metro Davao 24-33.
