MANILA A high-pressure area (HPA) and the easterlies are forecast to bring warm weather in the country until Wednesday afternoon, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) said on Tuesday.
In its 4 p.m. weather bulletin, which is effective for 24 hours, the state-run weather bureau said northern Luzon will be affected by a ridge of the HPA, which is associated with nice and warm weather.
The easterlies, which are warm winds coming from the Pacific and prompt cloud formation, will prevail over the entire country, according to PAGASA.
PAGASA added that local thunderstorms, along with the easterlies, will bring partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rains in Metro Manila and the other parts of the country.
The eastern section of northern Luzon will also have moderate to occasionally rough coastal waters caused by moderate to occasionally strong winds.
Slight to moderate coastal waters are expected to prevail over other parts of northern Luzon due to light to moderate winds.
Metro Manila and the rest of the country, meanwhile, will have slight to moderate coastal waters pushed by light to moderate winds.
