Except in Southern Mindanao, most parts of the country including Metro Manila will continue to experience fair weather, the Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) reported on Monday.
In an interview, PAGASA weather forecaster Connie Dadivas said the rest of the archipelago including Metro Manila will have generally fair weather apart from isolated rainshowers or thunderstorms due to the northeast monsoon affecting Luzon and Visayas.
She added that in the next three days they cannot see any weather disturbance near the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR).
Dadivas said that the regions of Caraga will be cloudy with light to moderate rainshowers and thunderstorms because of the trough or extended clouds of low pressure area which has a slim chance of entering the country.
She added that the LPA also has little chance to develop into a tropical cyclone and expected to dissipate by Wednesday.
But in case it enters the country and intensifies into a tropical depression, she said it will be named “Caloy,” the third cyclone to affect the country this year.
Dadivas said they expect a gradual weather improvement in Mindanao once the LPA dissipates.
In its advisory, PAGASA said that moderate to strong winds blowing from the northeast will prevail over Luzon, Visayas and eastern Mindanao. 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. PNA
