MANILA, April 24 — Warm weather is expected over some parts of Luzon as the easterlies or warm winds from the east continue to affect the eastern section of the country, the state weather bureau said on Wednesday.

In its advisory, Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) said the whole country will have partly cloudy skies with isolated rain showers or thunderstorms mostly over the eastern section.

Some parts of Luzon including Metro Manila will continue to experience maximum temperatures of 36 degrees Celsius for Wednesday.

PAGASA said that on Tuesday afternoon other areas in Northern Luzon experienced temperatures above 36 degrees Celsius as the temperature in Subic, Zambales reached up to 37.5 degrees Celsius; 36.8 degrees Celsius in Cabanatuan City in Nueva Ecija; and 36.4 degrees Celsius in Dagupan City in Pangasinan.

In Metro Manila, the temperature was recorded at 35.5 degrees Celsius at 1 p.m. Tuesday at the Science Garden in Quezon City.

Metro Manila's highest temperature so far this year was recorded last April 19 at 36.6 degrees Celsius.

PAGASA had warned of high temperatures until at least the second half of May.

PAGASA also said light to moderate winds from the east to southeast will pevail over Luzon and coming from the east to northeast over Visayas and Mindanao.

The coastal waters throughout the archipelago will be slight to moderate. (PNA)
