The northeast monsoon or “hanging amihan” continues to be the dominant weather system that is expected to bring cloudy skies with isolated rains in most parts of the country on Tuesday.
In its advisory, Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) said the cold northeast monsoon or “hanging amihan” is expected to bring cloudy skies with isolated light rains over Eastern Visayas, Davao Region and CARAGA while the rest of the country including Metro Manila will be partly cloudy to at times cloudy with isolated light rains.
PAGASA also said moderate to strong winds blowing from the northeast to east will prevail over Luzon and coming from the northeast over the eastern section of Visayas and of Mindanao and the coastal waters along these areas will be moderate to rough.
Elsewhere, winds will be light to moderate coming from the northeast with slight to moderate seas.
Meanwhile, the minimum temperature in Metro Manila on Tuesday morning was recorded at 19.5 degrees Celsius at 6 a.m.
It was higher compared to Monday’s minimum temperature of 18.2 degrees Celsius.
Metro Manila’s temperature readings are being recorded daily in the vicinity of the PAGASA Science Garden in Diliman, Quezon City between 5 a.m. and 6 a.m.
The 18.0 degrees Celsius recorded last Feb. 3 in Metro Manila is so far the lowest for this year.
PAGASA said the all-time lowest temperature recorded in Metro Manila was at 14.9 degrees Celsius on March 1, 1963.
PAGASA said the lowest temperature so far this year was recorded at 9.8 degrees Celsius in Baguio City on Feb. 2.
