Likewise, Southern Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao will have light to occasionally moderate rains associated with the southward migration of the tail-end of cold front (shear line) on (Nov 2-4). The rest of the country will have good weather condition apart from isolated passing light rains.
Sea travel along the seaboards of Northern Luzon is risky due to big waves associated with Severe Tropical Storm ROSITA while the rest of the country will have slight to moderate coastal waters.
