She added that we should expect warmer days ahead with the transition period as the wind from the northeast monsoon continues to weaken.
Metro Manila temperature will be range 21-32 degrees Celsius for Tuesday.
She said that the minimum temperature recorded in Metro Manila was at 20.7 degrees Celsius around 6 a.m. on Monday while the maximum recorded at 32 degrees Celsius around 3 p.m.
Dadivas also said that the easterlies was blocked due to the tropical storm in Pacific Ocean towards Japan.

In its advisory, Pagasa said that moderate to occasionally strong winds from the northeast will prevail over the eastern section of Luzon and Visayas and the coastal waters along these areas will be moderate to occasionally rough.
