Expect warmer days ahead with the transition period as the northeast monsoon starts to dissipate, the Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) said on Monday.
In an interview, Pagasa weather forecaster Connie Dadivas said cold weather can still be experienced but only in northern Luzon due to the weakening northeast monsoon.
She said most parts of the country will experience fair weather for the next three days with the easterlies affecting Luzon and Visayas,
Dadivas said that whole archipelago will be partly cloudy to cloudy with isolated rain showers or thunderstorms.
She said that with the present of the easterlies, localized thunderstorms are easily formed.
She further noted that no tropical cyclone is expected to affect the country until Wednesday.
Until Wednesday, Dadivas said that except for extreme Northern Luzon, the rest of the country including Metro Manila will have a mixture of sunny to partly cloudy skies with possible passing light rains in the afternoon or evening due to localized convective activities.
On the other hand, Dadivas said extreme Northern Luzon will experience partly cloudy to cloudy skies with passing light rains due to the effects the cold northeast monsoon or “hanging amihan.”
In its advisory, Pagasa said that moderate to occasionally strong winds blowing from the east to southeast will prevail over Luzon and its coastal waters will be moderate to occasionally rough.
Elsewhere, winds will be light to moderate coming from the east to northeast with slight to moderate seas. PNA
