MOST parts of the country will have better weather beginning today since typhoon “Hanna” has left the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR), the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) said on Sunday.
PAGASA weather observer Lenny Ruiz said “Hanna” blew out of the country at 3 p.m. on Saturday. The typhoon killed 12 people in eastern China and dumped the heaviest rains in a century.
Ruiz said the southwest monsoon has weakened but is still affecting Luzon and the Visayas.
He said the western section of the country will have partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rains because of the southwest monsoon. The rest of the country will generally have sunny to partly cloudy skies with possible light rains in the afternoon or evening.
The weather bureau also issued a gale warning, saying sea conditions will be rough to very rough because of strong to gale force winds expected to affect the seaboards of Northern Luzon and the eastern seaboard of Central and Southern Luzon.
”Fishing boats and other small seacrafts are advised not to venture out into the sea while larger sea vessels are alerted against big waves,” it warned.
