MANILA, Nov. 23 (PNA) — The country will continue to be storm-free for the next three days, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) said on Sunday.
In an interview, PAGASA weather forecaster Aldczar Aurelio said the agency is not anticipating any cyclone to affect the country until Wednesday.
He added that those who will watch the fight of Filipino boxing idol Manny Pacquiao and American boxer Christopher Algieri should not only expect a good fight but also good weather in most parts of the country.
Meanwhile, Aurelio said parts of the Samar provinces will experience cloudy skies with light to moderate rains until Tuesday because of the tail-end of a cold front affecting Eastern Visayas.
Northern Luzon, on the other hand, will remain to have partly cloudy to cloudy skies with passing light rains due to the effects of the northeast monsoon.
Aurelio said the rest of the country, including Metro Manila, will have partly cloudy to cloudy skies with possible isolated rains because of localized thunderstorms.
He said the agency has not issued gale warning and sea travel will be safe for fisherfolk and small seacraft.
In its advisory, PAGASA said moderate to strong winds blowing from the northeast will prevail over Northern Luzon and its coastal waters will be moderate to rough.
Elsewhere, winds will be light to moderate coming from the east to northeast with slight to moderate seas. (PNA)
