Rainy weather in N. Luzon; fair weather in Metro Manila, rest of PH
MANILA, Philippines — Northern Luzon will expect scattered rains due to the southwest monsoon or habagat while Metro Manila and the rest of the country will experience fair weather conditions on Monday, the state weather service said Sunday.
The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) said Ilocos Region, Cordillera Administrative Region, and the provinces of Batanes, Cagayan, Zambales, and Bataan will experience cloudy skies with scattered rain showers and thunderstorms.
Meanwhile, Metro Manila and the rest of the country will expect fair weather conditions with chances of isolated rain showers or thunderstorms.
There is also a low-pressure area (LPA) located 680 kilometers northeast of extreme northern Luzon outside of the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR).
The LPA, which has maximum sustained winds of 55 kilometers per hour (kph) and a gustiness of up to 70 kph, is enhancing the habagat, said Pagasa.
“Bagamat maliit ang tiyansa nitong maging bagyo, ay within 12 to 24 hours ay patuloy itong magpapaibayo ng habagat,” said senior weather specialist Chris Perez.
(While the low-pressure area has a low chance of turning into a typhoon, it will be affected by the habagat within 12 to 24 hours.)
Meanwhile, Pagasa has raised a gale warning on the northern and western seaboards of Northern Luzon and western seaboard of Central Luzon where moderate to strong waves at 1.2 to 4.0 meters will be experienced. The rest of the country will experience light to moderate sea conditions.
