MANILA Tropical Storm Perla will continue its way out of the Philippine area of responsibility (PAR) on Saturday and will not affect the country's weather.
In its early morning weather bulletin, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) said "Perla" (international name Neoguri') was last estimated at 690 km. east of Basco, Batanes and was moving west-northwest at 15 kph with maximum sustained winds of 85 kph near its center and gustiness of up to 105 kph.
Batanes, Ilocos Norte, Apayao, and Cagayan will have partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rain showers brought by the northeasterly surface wind flow.
Metro Manila and the rest of the country will have the same weather situation brought by localized thunderstorms.
Winds in Luzon will be moderate to strong going northeast, which will result in moderate to rough coastal waters 1.2 meters to 4 meters high.
The Visayas will have moderate winds going east to northeast with moderate coastal waters at heights of 1.2 meters to 2.5 meters.
Mindanao will have light to moderate winds headed in the northeast to the east, which will bring slight to moderate coastal waters at heights reaching 0.6 meters to 2.1 meters. (PNA)
