Summerís here, northeast monsoon gone, says PAGASA

MANILA -- And just like that -- it?s summer.

The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) said the amihan or the northeast monsoon coming from the cold polar region ended on Sunday, signaling the onset of the warmer easterly wave from the Pacific Ocean.

"With the termination of amihan yesterday, we expect dry weather to prevail until May," said weather forecaster Bernie de Leon in a phone interview.

The hanging amihan that brought about colder mornings and nights in the last two months particularly in the Luzon area came from the winter wind blowing from mainland China.

De Leon said the transition wind called the easterlies (wind blowing from east to west) that replaced amihan would bring in pleasant weather conditions in the country.

But possible rains are in the cards for the Bicol region and Samar province due to the effect of the easterly waves and the tail-end of a cold front. The weather disturbance in these areas will be intensified by the continuing La NiŮa phenomenon.

In its weather bulletin on Sunday, PAGASA said the Bicol region, Visayas and Mindanao were expected to experience cloudy skies, scattered rain showers and thunderstorms due to wind convergence.
