The whole country including Metro Manila will be partly cloudy to cloudy with isolated rainshowers or thunderstorms mostly over the eastern section on Monday due to the easterlies
Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) weather forecaster Aldczar Aurelio said the easterlies continue to affect the eastern section of Luzon and Visayas.
Aurelio said the low pressure area (LPA) hovering inside the country dissipate on Sunday afternoon.
He added that no weather disturbance will affect the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) until Wednesday.
However, Aurelio said the agency continues to monitor a weather disturbance which is still too far the country but is expected to enter PAR on Friday and will be a tropical cyclone category.
He said the LPA was spotted some 2,000 km east of Mindanao.
Once it enters PAR as tropical depression or storm category, it will be named “Ruby”, the 18th tropical cyclone to affect the country this year, he said.
Aurelio said that expect one to two tropical cyclone to affect the country this month.
He added that usually if there is tropical cyclone for the month of December, it affects mostly parts of the Visayas and Mindanao.
In its advisory, PAGASA said moderate to strong winds blowing from the east to northeast will prevail over Luzon and its coastal waters will be moderate to rough.
Elsewhere, winds will be light to moderate coming from the east to northeast with slight to moderate seas.
