Easterly winds, characterized by hot and humid air as they pass across the Pacific Ocean, continue to prevail over the eastern section of Luzon and Visayas.

Because of the easterlies, the whole country will enjoy good weather, apart from possible drizzling or isolated rain showers in the eastern section of the country.

Meanwhile, the coasts of Ilocos provinces, La Union and Pangasinan will experience moderate to rough sea conditions due to the surge of northeasterly winds.

Small sea vessels are alerted against the current sea condition.
