Pagasa: Dry season, warmer weather coming soon
MANILA, Philippines — Warmer weather may prevail next week as the end of northeast monsoon or “amihan” season nears, according to the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa).
“Nalalapit na po ang pagtatapos ng amihan season at maaaring sa susunod na linggo hanggang sa huling araw ng Marso ay magsimula na ‘yung warm and dry season or tag-init sa Pilipinas,” Pagasa weather specialist Benison Estareja said.
(The end of the northeast monsoon season is near, and by next week or the last days of March, the warm and dry season may begin in the country.)
Estareja said the “amihan” is now only affecting parts of Northern Luzon.
Pagasa on Friday said that partly cloudy to cloudy skies and possible rain showers are expected in the Ilocos region, Cordillera Administrative Region, Cagayan Valley, and Central Luzon.
Metro Manila and the rest of the country can likewise expext fair weather with partly cloudy to cloudy skies and isolated rain showers and thunderstorms.
Estareja said the low pressure area last spotted off Eastern Visayas has already dissipated, and the country is not expecting any weather disturbance in the coming days.
“Wala po tayong namo-monitor na low pressure area o bagyo na papasok ng Philippine area of responsibility hanggang sa mga susunod na araw,” he added.
(We don’t expect any low pressure area or tropical cyclone entering the Philippine area of responsibility in the coming days.)
Pagasa added that no gale warning was is in effect over any of the country’s seaboards.
‘La Niña has ended,’ says Pagasa
Pagasa says up to one tropical cyclone may enter PH this March
