2 storms seen in June

The government weather bureau is expecting one or two tropical cyclones that may affect the country in June.

The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration said tropical cyclones originating from eastern Pacific Ocean tend to move and curve northeast but these cyclones pull the southwest monsoon or “hanging habagat” inland, enhancing its effects.

Some cyclones may also cross Northern or Central Luzon.

PAGASA expects cloudy skies with light to moderate rain showers and thunderstorms over Palawan due to the habagat, while partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rain showers or thunderstorms will prevail over Metro Manila and the rest of the country today.

Tomorrow until Tuesday, PAGASA said the southwesterly winds will prevail over Luzon and some parts of Visayas.
Partly cloudy to cloudy skies with light to occasionally moderate rains will prevail over Ilocos Norte, Ilocos Sur, La Union, Pangasinan, Abra, Benguet, Ifugao, Kalinga, Mountain Province, Apayao, Batanes, Cagayan, Isabela, Nueva Vizcaya, Quirino, Aurora, Bataan, Bulacan, Nueva Ecija, Pampanga, Tarlac, Zambales, Oriental Mindoro, Occidental Mindoro, Marinduque, Romblon, Cavite, Batangas, and Iloilo.

Metro Manila and the rest of the country will be partly cloudy to at times cloudy with light rain showers and isolated thunderstorms mostly in the afternoon or evening.

By Wednesday until Friday, PAGASA said the southwesterly winds will prevail over most parts of the country.

Ilocos Norte, Ilocos Sur, La Union, Pangasinan, Aurora, Bataan, Bulacan, Nueva Ecija, Pampanga, Tarlac, Zambales, Oriental Mindoro, Occidental Mindoro, Marinduque, and Romblon will experience partly cloudy to cloudy skies with light rains and isolated thunderstorms.

Metro Manila and the rest of the country will have partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rain showers and thunderstorms especially in the afternoon or evening.

PAGASA does not expect the formation of a tropical cyclone that may affect the country throughout the forecast period. (Ellalyn V. Ruiz)
