Habagat to bring rain over parts of Luzon, Visayas on Monday
MANILA, Philippines — The southwest monsoon, or “habagat” will continue to bring rain over several parts of Luzon and the Visayas on Monday, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) said.
“Inaasahan pa rin natin ang pagpapatuloy ng hanging habagat sa kanlurang bahagi ng Luzon, kaya asahan pa rin natin ang makulimlim na panahon na may kalat kalat na pagulan pagkidlat pagkulog,” said Pagasa weather specialist Daniel James Villamil.
(We can still expect the southwest monsoon to be present in the western part of Luzon. We can expect cloudy weather with scattered rain showers, and thunderstorms.)
Meanwhile the rest of Luzon, said Villamil, will experience generally fair weather with chances of thunderstorms in the afternoon and evening.
“Dito sa Western at Central Visayas ay inaasahan pa rin natin na iiral itong habagat kaya inaasahan natin itong maulap na kalangitan may mga scattered rain showers at thunderstorms,” said Villamil.
(Here in the Western and Central Visayas we expect expect cloudy skies with scattered rain showers and thunderstorms brought by the habagat.)
The rest of the Visayas and Luzon, meanwhile, will have generally fair weather with hot temperatures expected at noon, and chances of rain in the afternoon and evening.
No gale warning was raised in any of the country’s coasts, but Villamil warned of moderate to rough sea conditions in the seaboards of Northern Luzon and the eastern part of the country.
