The rest of the country will have partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rain showers or thunderstorms due to easterlies.
Residents in these areas are advised to prepare against possible flash floods or landslides due to moderate to at times heavy rains.
Moderate to strong northeast winds and moderate to rough seas will prevail over Northern Luzon and eastern sections of Visayas, Central and Southern Mindanao.
The rest of the country will experience light to moderate east to northeast winds and slight to moderate seas.
