Philippine Weather Forecast: November 22, 2017 | Rains mostly in Luzon and Mindanao

Three weather systems including the Northeast Monsoon, Tail-end of Cold Front and Intertropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ) are expected to affect the country. The Northeast Monsoon, locally known as Hanging Amihan, prevails in the Extreme Northern Luzon. Apart from the slightly colder weather, it will bring partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated light rains in the province of Batanes and the Babuyan Group of Islands.

The extension of the cold front, where the boundary of warm and cold air converge, is still expected to bring cloudy skies with scattered rains and thunderstorms in the provinces of Cagayan, Isabela, Aurora and Quezon. Residents should watch out for possible flooding in low-lying areas and landslides in mountainous zones.

The same weather condition is expected in the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (ARMM), South Cotabato, Cotabato, Sultan Kudarat, Sarangani and General Santos City (SOCCSKSARGEN). Meanwhile, Metro Manila and the rest of the country will have partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rain showers or thunderstorms mostly in the latter part of the day.

No gale warning is up today but sea travelers in Luzon are advised to be cautious as moderate to rough sea conditions may prevail today. Slight to moderate seas will be experienced in Visayas and Mindanao, where coastal waters are favorable for sailing.
