Sunday, December 22, 2013
MANILA -- A day after the so called "Winter Solstice" when the Philippines experienced the shortest daytime and the longest nighttime, the country remains set for the cold weather brought about by the Northeast Monsoon (Hanging Amihan).
The state weather bureau Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) said in its Sunday morning bulletin that Amihan continues to affect the northern and central portions of Luzon.
Pagasa said, "Cagayan Valley, Bicol region and the provinces of Aurora, Quezon and Palawan will have cloudy skies with light to moderate rain showers and thunderstorms."
It added, " The regions of Ilocos and Cordillera will experience cloudy skies with rain."
Meanwhile, "Metro Manila and the rest of the country will be partly cloudy to cloudy with isolated rain showers or thunderstorms," Pagasa also said.
The state weather agency also said, "Moderate to strong winds blowing from the northeast will prevail over Luzon and Visayas and the coastal waters along these areas will be moderate to rough. Elsewhere, winds will be light to moderate coming from the northeast to north with slight to moderate seas." (SFP/Sunnex)
