Filipinos seeking to make the most of a long weekend break can expect a generally fair weather across the country for the remainder of October until the first week of November.
The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration said the intertropical convergence zone could bring cloudy skies with light to moderate rains and thunderstorms over Oriental Mindoro, Occidental Mindoro, Marinduque, Palawan, Quezon, Albay, Catanduanes, Sorsogon, Masbate, Camarines Norte, Camarines Sur, Visayas, and Mindanao today.
Cloudy skies with light rains will prevail over Cagayan, Isabela, and Aurora. For Metro Manila and the rest of the country, partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rain showers or thunderstorms can be expected.
This weather scenario will prevail until November 4, PAGASA said.
Midweek, it said, a low pressure area could form east of Luzon over the Philippine Sea but has a slim chance of becoming a tropical cyclone. PAGASA said one to three tropical cyclones could enter or develop inside the country’s area of responsibility this November.
The northeast monsoon, locally called “hanging amihan,” is also expected to set in soon.
PAGASA said generally near average temperature is likely in November, while cold surges may start to occur in December. (Ellalyn B. de Vera)
