Pagasa sees intensified effect of southwest monsoon in coming days
MANILA, Philippines — Effects of the southwest monsoon, which is locally termed habagat, are predicted to strengthen in the coming days, the state weather bureau said Saturday.
In a weather report, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) said rains that would occur in the next few days would be mainly due to the southwest monsoon as it has not observed any weather disturbances within and outside the Philippine area of responsibility.
“[Sa] mga susunod na mga araw inaasahan natin na mas lalakas pa ang epekto ng hanging habagat na makakaapekto pa rin sa ating bansa,” Pagasa weather specialist Patrick del Mundo said.
(In the next few days, we expect the effect of the south wind will be stronger which will still affect our country.)
Pagas said parts of Southern Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao will experience rain on Saturday due to the southwest monsoon while the greater part of Luzon, including Metro Manila, will have cloudy weather with chances of isolated rain showers and thunderstorms from afternoon to evening.
