Except for isolated light rains, fair weather continues in most parts of the country within the next two to three days as the northeast monsoon continues to be the dominant weather system affecting the country, according to the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) on Sunday.
In an interview, PAGASA weather forecaster Jaime Bordales said the northeast monsoon or “Hangin Amihan” is characterized by the cold winds coming from mainland China which blow in early October, reaching peak during February and lasting until March.
He said that for Sunday’s weather forecast, Luzon, including Metro Manila, will have partly cloudy to at times cloudy skies with isolated light rains while the rest of the country will be partly cloudy to cloudy with isolated rainshowers or thunderstorms.
Bordales said the agency has not seen any weather disturbance near the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) that may develop into tropical cyclone within the next three days.
PAGASA said moderate to strong winds blowing from the northeast to east will prevail over Luzon and Eastern Visayas 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. PNA
