The Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) on Sunday said the country will continue to experience fair weather for the next two to three days.
In an interview, PAGASA weather forecaster Glaiza Escullar said the agency has not monitored any weather disturbance outside the country’s area of responsibility that may intensify into a tropical cyclone to affect the country until Wednesday.
He said except in Mindanao and Palawan, most parts of the country will continue to enjoy relatively good weather for the next three days.
For the month of June, he said the state weather bureau is expecting two to three storms to hit the country while for the month of July, expect to three to four storms.
Every year, an average of about 18 to 20 storms affect the Philippines, according to the PAGASA.
Escullar said that due to monsoon trough, Palawan, Eastern Visayas and Mindanao will experience cloudy skies with light to moderate rains and thunderstorms on Sunday
She added that the rest of the country including Metro Manila will continue to experience sunny to partly cloudy skies with possible afternoon or evening rains because of the localized thunderstorms.
In its advisory, PAGASA said moderate to strong winds coming from the southwest to south will prevail over Luzon and its coastal waters will be moderate to rough.
It added that light to moderate winds blowing from the southwest will prevail over the rest of the country with slight to moderate seas.
Meanwhile, for the weekly outlook, PAGASA said the southwest monsoon or “Hanging Habagat” is expected to temporarily weaken by Monday. Hence, the whole country will have partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated afternoon or evening rainshowers or thunderstorms throughout the rest of the outlook period (June 30-July 04). PNA
