‘Habagat’ dominant weather system until tomorrow

RAIN iconThe southwest monsoon or “habagat” will still be the prevailing weather system in the next two days.

The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration said the habagat may bring cloudy skies with scattered rain showers and thunderstorms over Metro Manila, Central Luzon, Ilocos region, Cordillera Administrative Region, and Cagayan Valley.

The rest of the country will experience partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rain showers due to localized thunderstorms.

A gale warning remains in effect as sea travel remains risky over some seaboards of the country.

The northern seaboard of Northern Luzon and the western coasts of Northern and Central Luzon, particularly Batanes, Calayan, Babuyan, Ilocos Norte, Ilocos Sur, La Union, Pangasinan, Zambales, and Bataan will have rough to very rough seas due to the habagat.

PAGASA weather specialist Gener Quitlong said a circulation off the Pacific Ocean will likely form into a low-pressure area by Wednesday and may enter the Philippine Area of Responsibility later this week.

So far, tropical cyclones “Kabayan” and “Liwayway” have entered the PAR this month. (Ellalyn Ruiz)
