Tail-end of a cold front affecting extreme Northern Luzon

Light rains will be experienced Thursday in some parts of the country including Metro Manila, the Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) said.

PAGASA attributed the rain in some areas due to the tail-end of a cold front affecting extreme Northern Luzon.

The tail-end of a cold front is the front boundary of two air masses, which produces clouds and rain.

In its advisory, PAGASA said Batanes and Calayan Group of Islands will experience cloudy skies with light rains while Metro Manila, Calabarzon (Cavite, Laguna, Batangas, Rizal and Quezon), Mimaropa (Mindoro, Marinduque, Romblon and Palawan) will be partly cloudy with brief rains.

The rest of the country will have partly cloudy skies with isolated rainshowers or thunderstorms.

Moderate to strong winds blowing from the northeast will prevail over extreme Northern Luzon and the coastal waters along these areas will be moderate to rough.

Elsewhere, winds will be light to moderate blowing from the east to northeast with slight to moderate seas.

PAGASA also said strong to gale-force winds associated with the surge northeasterly windflow may affect the northern seaboards of northern Luzon.
