“Patuloy pa rin ang epekto ng easterlies sa bansa. Kaya asahan natin na ang buong bansa ay, bukod sa maalinsangan na panahon, asahan din ang biglaang buhos ng ulan dala ng thunderstorms,” Pagasa weather specialist Aldczar Aurelio said.
(The effect of the easterlies will persist in the country. Expect that the entire country will have, other than hot and humid weather, sudden downpours brought by thunderstorms.)
