Monsoon rain over north Luzon, humid weather in Metro Manila-A A +A
Monday, September 2, 2013
The Southwest Monsoon will continue to bring rain to parts of Northern Luzon, while a high-pressure area will bring humid weather to Metro Manila on Monday, the state weather bureau said.
In its early morning bulletin, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) said the weakened southwest monsoon will still bring rain to extreme Northern Luzon.
But Pagasa forecaster Meno Mendoza said in a radio interview the high-pressure area is bringing easterlies to Metro Manila.
Meanwhile, Panahon TV's Harry Bayona cited Pagasa forecaster Fernando Cada who said that the Philippines should expect lower temperature this month as the transition from the Southwest Monsoon (Hanging Habagat) to the Northeast Monsoon (Hanging Amihan) will happen soon.
Cada added, that except for the western part of Luzon, the country will experience less rain this month.
Pagasa also said in its 5 a.m. bulletin, the Cagayan Valley and Cordillera and Ilocos, the provinces of Zambales and Bataan and the Islands of Batanes, Babuyan and Calayan will experience cloudy skies with light to moderate rain showers and thunderstorms."
It added Metro Manila and the rest of the country will have "partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rain showers or thunderstorms." (JK/Sunnex)
