The same weather condition with moderate to occassionally heavy rains will be experienced in Palawan due to prevailing Southwest Monsoon.

Light to moderate winds blowing from the southwest to southeast will prevail over Northen and Central parts of Luzon. The same winds coming from the southwest meanwhile will prevail over Southern Luzon and the rest of the archipelago with slight to moderate seas. —R4A/DOST-PAGASA
