MANILA, Philippines — Isolated rain showers and thunderstorms may still occur in the country on Monday afternoon and evening even as hot and humid weather is expected to persist due to the easterlies, according to the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa).

Based on Pagasa’s weather bulletin issued at 4 a.m., the easterlies or warm winds coming from the Pacific Ocean continue to affect the weather in the country.

“Dahil sa easterlies, patuloy na mararanasan sa buong Luzon ang mainit at maalinsangang panahon. Subalit pagdating ng hapon at gabi, posible ang pagkakaroon ng pulo-pulong pag-ulan, pagkidlat at pagkulog,” Pagasa weather specialist Meno Mendoza said.


(Because of the easterlies, Luzon will continue to experience hot and humid weather but in the afternoon and evening, isolated rain showers and thunderstorms may occur.)


Isolated rain showers are likewise expected in Visayas and Mindanao.

“Para sa Kabisayaan, patuloy pa ring mararanasan ang maaliwalas na panahon na may posibilidad ng isolated thunderstorms lalo na pagdating ng hapon at gabi,” Mendoza said.

(Visayas will still experience fair weather, and isolated thunderstorms may occur especially in the afternoon and evening.)

“Sa buong Mindanao, magiging maaliwalas pa rin ang panahon, mainit at maalinsangan. Pagdating ng hapon at gabi ay mas malaki ang tsansa na magkaroon ng isolated thunderstorms,” he added.

(In the entire Mindanao, the weather will be fair, hot and humid. In the afternoon and evening, there is a higher chance for isolated thunderstorms to occur.)
