The whole country would continue to experience fair weather and partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated light rains due to the northeast monsoon affecting Luzon and Visayas, the Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) said on Monday.
In an interview, PAGASA weather forecaster Fernando Cada said the northeast monsoon continues to bring cold weather with isolated light rains in most parts of the country.
The temperature for Metro Manila for Monday will range from 17 to 29 degrees Celsius, while Baguio City between 9-19 degrees Celsius.
Cada said a low pressure area (LPA) being monitored is expected to enter the boundary of the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) this Wednesday but it will not affect the country as of this time.
He added that the LPA has small chance to intensify into a tropical cyclone.
In its advisory, PAGASA said that moderate to strong winds blowing from the northeast will prevail over Luzon and Visayas and coming from the northeast to north over Mindanao.
The coastal waters throughout the archipelago will be moderate to rough.
PAGASA also issued gale warning as strong to gale-force winds associated with the northeast monsoon, will affect the northern seaboard of Northern Luzon and the eastern seaboards of Southern Luzon, Visayas and of Mindanao.
“Fishing boats and other small seacrafts are advised not to venture out into the sea while larger sea vessels are alerted against big waves,” it warned. PNA
