MANILA,  Philippines — Several areas in Luzon, including the earthquake-stricken Cordillera Administrative Region (CAR), will experience scattered rains and thunderstorms enhanced by the southwest monsoon, the state weather bureau said.

In its early morning weather forecast on Wednesday, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) said the southwest monsoon, locally known as “habagat,” will primarily affect northern Luzon — such as the provinces of Ilocos Sur, Ilocos Norte, Cagayan and Batanes, and provinces in CAR.


These areas will experience scattered rains and thunderstorms.

“Magpapatuloy ang maulap na kalangitan na may kalat-kalat na mga ulan, pagkidlat at pagkulog dito sa bahagi ng may Cordillera Administrative Region, maging sa Ilocos Norte, Ilocos Sur, Cagayan at sa may Batanes. Dahil iyan sa patuloy na pag-iral ng southwest monsoon o ng hanging habagat.”


(Cloudy skies. scattered rains and thunderstorms due to the southwest monsoon will affect the areas of Cordillera Administrative Region, Ilocos Norte, Ilocos Sur, Cagayan and Batanes.)

Metro Manila, Central Luzon and other parts of the country will experience partly cloudy to cloudy skies with chances of rain and thunderstorms also due to the southwest monsoon.

Meanwhile, del Mundo said cloud clusters can be found east of Visayas and Mindanao, which Pagasa will continue to monitor in the following days.

He said Visayas and Mindanao will experience warm weather in the morning, with the possibility of rains in the afternoon due to localized thunderstorms.

“Banayad hanggang sa katamtamang alon ang mararanasan ngunit may mga tsansa pa rin na tumaas ang alon, lalung-lalo na tuwing magkakaroon ng severe thunderstorm event,” said Del Mundo.

(Slight to moderate waves will be felt but there is a chance that waves can rise due to a severe thunderstorm.)

Pagasa outlined temperate ranges in the following areas, thus:


Metro Manila temp 25 to 33 degrees celsius
Laoag 32 to 24 degrees celsius
Baguio 16 to 24 degrees celsius
Legazpi 25 to 33 degrees celsius
Tagaytay 22 to 31 degrees celsius
Tuguegarao 23 to 33 degrees celsius
Puerto Princesa 25 to 32 degrees celsius
