Partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rainshowers or thunderstorms will prevail over Metro Manila and the rest of the country, PAGASA also said.

"Moderate to strong winds coming from the southwest to south will prevail over Northern Luzon and eastern section of Central and Southern Luzon, of the Visayas and of Mindanao," PAGASA continued.

Coastal waters along those areas will be moderate to rough, PAGASA said.

"Elsewhere, winds will be light to moderate coming from the southwest to south with slight to moderate seas," PAGASA said further.
