MANILA, Philippines — The northeast monsoon or amihan is gaining strength, causing cooler weather in most parts of Luzon on Tuesday, the state weather bureau reported.
“Sa kasalukuyan, inaasahan natin ang muling paglakas ng northeast monsoon o amihan at ito nga po ngayon ay umiiral at nakakaapekto dito sa bahagi ng Luzon kung saan ngayong araw asahan po natin ang malamig na panahon dito sa malaking bahagi ng Luzon,” said Grace Castañeda, weather specialist of Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa).
(At present, we expect the northeast monsoon to gain strength, prevailing and affecting Luzon where we see cooler weather in many parts of Luzon.)
