A weak southwest monsoon or “hanging habagat” will bring partly cloudy to at times cloudy skies with rainshowers or thunderstorms over the whole country today.
The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration said the southwest monsoon is currently affecting the western section of Northern Luzon.
Moderate to strong winds blowing from the southwest will prevail over extreme Northern Luzon and the coastal waters along this area will be moderate to rough.
Meanwhile, light to moderate winds coming from the southeast to south will prevail over Mindanao and coming from the south to southwest over the rest of the county with slight to moderate seas.
PAGASA added that Metro Manila and the rest of the country will have partly cloudy to cloudy skies with rainshowers or thunderstorms mostly over the western part of due to weak southwest monsoon tomorrow.
By Tuesday until Thursday, the effect of the southwest monsoon will re-intensify. It will likely bring occasional light to moderate rains over Luzon while Visayas and Mindanao will have partly cloudy to cloudy skies with rainshowers or thunderstorms.
By Friday, the southwest monsoon will bring occasional light to moderate rains mostly over Northern Luzon and western section of Central and Southern Luzon. (Ellalyn B. de Vera)
