MANILA, Feb. 21 — The tail-end of a prevailing cold front is affecting Northern Luzon as easterlies prevail over Mindanao, according to the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Administration.

In its weather forecast issued Tuesday morning, PAGASA said that because of these weather systems affecting practically the whole country, Northern and Central Luzon and Mindanao will experience mostly cloudy skies with scattered rainshowers and thunderstorms, becoming cloudy with widespread rains over the eastern section of Northern and Central Luzon which may trigger flashfloods and landslides.

The rest of the country will have partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rainshowers or thunderstorms.

For its wind and sea alert, the weather agency said moderate to strong winds blowing from the east to southeast will prevail over Luzon and coming from the east over the rest of the country.

Coastal waters throughout the archipelago will be moderate to rough.

As explained by PAGASA Senior Weather Forecaster Renito Paciente, easterlies are warm and cold winds coming from the east that could bring cloudy skies and eventually moderate to heavy rains. (PNA) scs/MAGI/mec
