Amihan, shear line to bring rains over parts of Luzon

The Northeast Monsoon (Amihan) and shear line are affecting Luzon on Tuesday and will bring rains over several areas, PAGASA said in its weather forecast.

Mainland Cagayan, Isabela, Quirino, Nueva Vizcaya, Aurora, Quezon, Camarines Norte, and Camarines Sur will have cloudy skies with scattered rain showers and thunderstorms due to the shear line which is affecting the eastern sections of Central and Southern Luzon. Moderate to at times heavy rains may result in flash floods or landslides.

Batanes and Babuyan Islands will experience cloudy skies with rains due to the Northeast Monsoon affecting Northern Luzon. Flash floods or landslides may occur due to moderate to at times heavy rains.

The Cordillera Administrative Region and Ilocos Region meanwhile will have partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated light rains due to the monsoon.

Metro Manila and the rest of the country on the other hand may expect partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rain showers or thunderstorms due to localized thunderstorms. During severe thunderstorms, flash floods or landslides may result.

Coastal waters will be moderate to rough in Northern Luzon, and slight to moderate in the rest of the country.
