‘Habagat’ rains expected over northern, central Luzon — Pagasa
MANILA, Philippines — The southwest monsoon or “habagat” will continue to affect northern and central Luzon on Tuesday, according to the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa).
“Yung habagat o southwest monsoon ay patuloy pa rin na nakakaapekto doon po sa northern Luzon at central Luzon, kaya makaka-asa pa rin tayo ng pag-ulan dulot nito,” said Pagasa weather specialist Aldczar Aurelio in the bureau’s public weather forecast.
