The Philippine Atmospheric geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) said severe Tropical Storm “Ramil” has left the Philippine area of responsibility (PAR) at midnight but rains will persist over Northern Luzon due to the northeast monsoon or locally known as amihan.
Weather specialist Robert Badrina said light to moderate with possible occasional heavy rains and thunderstorms will still prevail over Palawan due to the trough of Ramil.
Pagasa in its advisory said the Cagayan Valley region and provinces of Apayao and Ilocos Norte is expected to have cloudy skies with light rains due to the northeast monsoon.
Badrina said the Cordillera region and the rest of Ilocos would have partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated light rains.
He added that Metro Manila and the rest of the country are projected to experience partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated light rains or thunderstorms.
Pagasa said sea travel remains dangerous over the northern and western seaboards of Northern Luzon.
