The northeast monsoon will bring cloudy skies with rains over Cagayan Valley, Aurora, Quezon and Bicol Region. Partly cloudy to cloudy skies are expected all over the rest of the country.

Auring is expected to make lamdfall  over the Caraga on Saturday evening or Sunday morning as a tropical storm, Estareja said.

Rains from Auring are expected from Saturday until Monday.

The areas on its path include the Visayas, Caraga, Northern Mindanao, Davao Oriental, Davao de Oro, Davao del Norte, Lanao del Sur, Bicol, Mimaropa (Mindoro, Marinduque, Romblon, Palawan) and Calabarzon (Cavite, Laguna, Batangas, Rizal, Quezon).
