December 28

  • Extreme Northern Luzon will have cloudy skies with isolated light rains due to the Northeast (NE) Monsoon. Ilocos Region, Cordillera Administrative Region, Aurora province, and the rest of Cagayan Valley will experience cloudy skies with scattered light to moderate rains due to the Tail-end of a Cold Front (TECF). Metro Manila and the rest of the country will have fair and warm weather conditions with isolated thunderstorms, especially in the afternoon or evening.

December 29 – 30
  • Easterlies will prevail across the country, bringing generally fair and warm weather conditions. Occurrence of isolated thunderstorms in the afternoon or evening may be expected.

December 31 – January 1
  • The surge of the NE Monsoon will bring cloudy skies with light rains over extreme Northern Luzon. The TECF will develop again and bring cloudy skies with scattered light to moderate rains over Cagayan, Isabela, and Aurora. Metro Manila and the rest of Luzon will have fair and cooler weather especially in the morning. The rest of the country will be sunny and warm apart from isolated rainshowers.

January 2 – 3
  • The NE Monsoon will affect the whole of Luzon and continue to bring cool weather conditions. Northern Luzon will have cloudy skies with light rains while Metro Manila and the rest of Luzon will have passing light rains. The rest of the country will have generally fair weather with possible occurrence of isolated thunderstorms.

No tropical cyclone is expected to affect the country throughout the outlook period. Still, in light of the holiday season, the public is advised to continuously monitor for updates. PAGASA will continue to monitor and inform the public of any significant changes in the weather.
