Fair weather seen ahead for CebuCebu Daily News
TYPHOON “Karen” is already out of the country but the southwest monsoon isn’t finished with Metro Manila and other parts of the country, the state weather bureau Pagasa said yesterday.
Still Pagasa Mactan acting chief Alfredo Quiblat said Metro Cebu’s temperature range will be at 24 to 33 degree Celsius while coastal waters are moderate.
Moderate to strong southwesterly wind or the monsoon continues to prevail over the Visayas and Luzon.
Light to moderate rain showers will occur particularly in the afternoon and rains with possible thunderstorms during the evening.
Pagasa forecasters warned of possible flash floods and landslides as a result of intermittent moderate to heavy rains expected over the Cordillera Administrative Region (CAR), and the provinces of Quirino, Nueva Ecija and Aurora.
Metro Manila, the weather bureau said, has been anticipated to experience occasional light to moderate rains and thunderstorms while the rest of Luzon and Western Visayas would have occasional light to moderate rains. Sea condition at the Manila Bay is expected to be moderate to occasionally rough with moderate to occasionally strong winds from the southwest.
Forecaster Samuel Duran said the rains pounding Metro Manila were spawned by the enhanced southwest monsoon, which remained in effect over Luzon and portions of the Visayas.
Duran said the public should expect the bad weather conditions in the National Capital Region, to persist until Tuesday, based on surface and satellite data analysis.
A developing low pressure area (LPA) has been spotted east of Mindanao but Pagasa assured that it was still too far from the Philippine area of responsibility to have effect. Inquirer with a report from Correspondent Joy Quito
