MANILA, Philippines — The tail-end of a cold front and localized thunderstorms will bring rains that might trigger flooding and landslides in the Mimaropa and Bicol regions all the way down to the Visayas and Mindanao on Saturday, January 13, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration said.

The rest of Luzon, including Metro Manila, can expect cloudy skies and scattered rains but otherwise no significant impact from the northeast monsoon, the weather bureau added.

Sea travel could be risky in Luzon and Eastern and Western Visayas where waters are forecast to be rough to very rough.

The rest of the Visayas and the eastern section of Mindanao can expect moderate to rough seas while waters in the rest of Mindanao are forecast to be slight to moderate.
