The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) on Monday said the entire archipelago will continue to experience generally fair weather for the next two to three days.
For Monday forecast, PAGASA still advised the public in Metro Manila and the rest of Luzon and Visayas to bring umbrella because of isolated light rains despite the fair weather while Mindanao will be partly cloudy to cloudy with isolated rainshowers or thunderstorms.
Moderate to occasionally strong winds blowing from the northeast will prevail over eastern section of Luzon and Visayas and the coastal waters along these areas will be moderate to occasionally rough.
Elsewhere, winds will be light to moderate coming from the northeast with slight to moderate seas.
In an interview, PAGASA weather forecaster Fernando Cada said that aside from Mindanao, the rest of the country including Metro Manila will have a sunny weather with partly cloudy skies until Wednesday.
Cada explained the northeast monsoon or “hanging amihan,” which continues to affect parts of Luzon and Visayas, would not be as cold as last month.
He said the northeast monsoon that remains blowing from mainland China into the country is “already modified.”
“Kapag sinabing modified, medyo mas mainit na ito (northeast monsoon) dahil dumadaan na ito sa may Pacific Ocean bago pumasok ng bansa,” he noted.
Meanwhile, Cada said Mindanao will continue have sunnyto partly cloudy skies with possible afternoon or evening rains due to localized convection for the next three days.
He added that PAGASA still does not see a cyclone entering the Philippine territory until Wednesday.
Cada said the weather disturbance over the Pacific Ocean continued to move towards Japan and it is not expected to enter the country anymore.
However, he noted that PAGASA still expects at least one storm to affect the country this month. PNA
