Save for some scattered rains and thunderstorms, the weather during the upcoming Christmas long weekend that starts on Thursday will be generally fair, PAGASA said.

Weather systems that bring heavy rains -- the amihan or northeast monsoon and a frontal system or wet winds from the Pacific Ocean -- are concentrated on the country's northern tip, said PAGASA forecaster Aldczar Aurelio.

A cloud cluster east of Mindanao is being monitored since it could develop into a low pressure area. Last week, Tropical Depression Vicky developed in the same general area and flooded parts of Caraga Region, leaving 8 people killed.

It will be generally fair in most of Luzon in the next three days. From Christmas Day Friday until Saturday, there could be patches of light rain in Metro Manila, Aurelio said.

In Cebu City and Davao City, there will be cloudy skies with isolated thunderstorms on Christmas Day until Saturday, he said.

Baguio City will experience fair weather in the next three days from Thursday, save for light rains in some parts starting Christmas Day until Saturday, he said.
