Sunday, December 29, 2013
MANILA -- State weather forecasters on Sunday reiterated that 2013 will end "on a good note" as they don't see any tropical cyclone brewing within the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR).
In its morning bulletin, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) said that two weather systems still affect the Luzon, the tail-end of a cold front over Bicol region, and the Northeast Monsoon (Hanging Amihan) over Northern and Central Luzon.
Pagasa said, "Bicol region, Eastern Visayas and the provinces of Mindoro, Marinduque and Romblon will have cloudy skies with light to moderate rains howers and thunderstorms."
Meanwhile, the skies over Cagayan Valley, Ilocos and Cordillera regions will be cloudy with light rain. This is due to the Northeast Monsoon.
"Metro Manila and the rest of Luzon will have partly cloudy to cloudy skies with light rain," it added.
"The rest of the country will be partly cloudy to cloudy with isolated rain showers or thunderstorms," it also said.
Pagasa warned, "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. In Mindanao, winds will be light to moderate coming from the northeast with slight to moderate seas." (SFP/Sunnex)
