The state weather bureau said a shear line, or the convergence of northeasterly and easterly winds that forms rain clouds, continues to affect extreme Northern Luzon.

Metro Manila and the rest of the country are affected by the easterlies, or the warm winds from the Pacific Ocean.

The easterlies may bring cloudy skies with rain showers and thunderstorms in the eastern section of Luzon and the Visayas, and the southern portion of Palawan including Kalayaan Islands.

There is a possibility of flash floods and landslides. 

Metro Manila and the rest of the country will have generally fair weather conditions, but there may be isolated rain showers and thunderstorms due to localized thunderstorms. 

It will be warm and humid in the morning and noon in the capital region, and the rains from the localized thunderstorms could come in the afternoon and evening, said Pagasa.
