Weather Central said that Eastern Visayas, Northern Mindanao and the regions of Caraga and Davao will have cloudy skies with light to moderate rainshowers and thunderstorms. Cagayan Valley and the provinces of Aurora and Quezon will experience cloudy skies with light rains. Metro Manila and the rest of the country will be partly cloudy with brief rainshowers or thunderstorms.

Moderate to strong winds blowing from the northeast will prevail throughout the archipelago and the coastal waters will be moderate to rough.

Strong to gale force wind is expected to affect the seaboards of Northern Luzon and the eastern seaboard of Central and Southern Luzon, Eastern Visayas and Eastern Mindanao.

In a special weather outlook during Christmas holidays (December 21-25, 2012) issued by PAGASA, it says that the tail-end of cold front and Northeast monsoon are the dominant weather systems to affect most parts of Eastern Luzon, Eastern Visayas and Mindanao.

Frequent rains will prevail over the provinces of Surigao, Davao, Leyte and Samar beginning on the 24th and until Christmas day due to the approach of a Low Pressure Area. The eastern section of Northern and Central Luzon will have light rains associated with the Northeast Monsoon. The rest of the country will have good weather conditions apart from passing showers.

Fishing vessels and other sea crafts over the seaboards of Luzon and Visayas are alerted against big waves generated by the monsoon surge with wave heights of 3-6 meters.

Residents living in low-lying areas of Mindanao are advised to take precautionary measures against flash floods and landslides.

No tropical cyclone formation is expected during the outlook period.
