Metro Manila and the rest of the country may have partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated light monsoon rains.

Based on the PAGASA’s extended weather outlook, minimum temperature range in Metro Manila from Feb. 11 to 14 is between 21 degrees Celsius and 23 degrees Celsius.

Minimum temperature in Baguio City is forecast at 13 degrees Celsius to 15 degrees Celsius during the same period.

PAGASA noted that a gale warning remains in effect due to rough to very rough seas triggered by the surge of the northeast monsoon.
