Rai trough to bring scattered rain over Visayas, Mindanao areas

The trough of Severe Tropical Storm Rai will bring cloudy skies with scattered rain showers and thunderstorms over the Eastern Visayas, Caraga, and Davao Region, PAGASA said Tuesday.

In its afternoon weather bulletin, PAGASA said Rai was 1,000 kilometers east of Mindanao at 3 p.m. with maximum sustained winds of 100 kilometers per hour and gustiness up to 125 kph. It was moving west-northwest at 25 kph.

PAGASA advised affected residents to prepare for possible flooding or landslides during moderate to, at times, heavy rain.

Meanwhile, cloudy skies with light rain would prevail over the Cagayan Valley due to the Northeast Monsoon.

The monsoon would also bring partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated light rain over the Ilocos Region, Cordillera Administrative Region, Central Luzon, Metro Manila, and CALABARZON.

The rest of the country will have partly cloudy skies with isolated rain showers or thunderstorms due to localized thunderstorms.

Flash floods or landslides are also possible during severe thunderstorms, PAGASA added.

Moderate to strong winds and moderate to rough coastal waters would be experienced in Luzon, Visayas, and the eastern section of Mindanao, while light to moderate winds and slight to moderate waters would prevail over the rest of Mindanao. — DVM, GMA News
