MANILA - Moderate to occasionally heavy rains will continue to affect some areas in rastern Luzon while light rains with cloudy skies will be experienced in Metro Manila and the rest of the country because of the lingering cold front, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) said in its 5 a.m. weather bulletin on Sunday.
It said the tail-end of the cold front is affecting the eastern section of Luzon which includes Aurora and Quezon.
A weather front is a term used in meteorology to describe the front end or advancing edge of an air mass that will soon replace the air mass that’s over a specific region. These air masses are designated P for polar (cold), T for tropical (warm), M for maritime (wet), and C for continental (dry).
The weather system also brings cloudy skies in Cagayan Valley or Region 2, Bicol, and Eastern Visayas.
Pagasa said the occasionally heavy rains could trigger flashfloods and landslides.
“Moderate to strong winds blowing from the northeast to east will prevail over Luzon and Visayas, and the coastal waters along these areas will be moderate to rough. Elsewhere, winds will be light to moderate coming from the northeast with light to moderate seas,” it said.
