TACLOBAN CITY – Shear Line will continue to affect Eastern Visayas as well as other parts of the Philippines, including Central Visayas, Misamis Oriental, Caraga, and Davao Oriental, bringing scattered rain showers and thunderstorms, according to the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and
Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA).

It is a weather phenomenon that occurs when two different air masses collide, resulting in atmospheric instability, scattered rain showers, and thunderstorms.

Meanwhile, the Northeast Monsoon is also affecting the Philippines, bringing rains to the Cagayan Valley, Cordillera Administrative Region, Bicol Region, Aurora, Quezon, Oriental Mindoro, Marinduque, and Romblon regions, in addition to the Shear Line.

It will bring partly cloudy to cloudy skies with light rains to Metro Manila and the rest of Luzon.

The rest of the country will see mostly cloudy skies with isolated rain showers or thunderstorms caused by the Shear Line or localized thunderstorms. During severe thunderstorms, flash floods and landslides are possible.

In terms of wind and coastal water conditions, the Philippines can expect moderate to strong winds from the Northeast to affect Luzon and Visayas, causing rough coastal waters. 

The eastern section of Mindanao will experience moderate to strong winds from the Northeast to the North, with rough coastal waters ranging from 1.2 to 4.0 meters. Light to moderate winds from the Northeast to the North are expected in the rest of Mindanao, with coastal waters ranging from 0.6 to 2.5 meters. —ITacloban
