MANILA, Philippines — The northeast monsoon, locally known as amihan, and the trough or extension of a low-pressure area (LPA) will bring rain showers to most parts of the country on Monday, state meteorologists said.


In a public report, specialist Obet Badrina said that due to the northeast monsoon, Cagayan Valley, Cordillera Administrative Region, Aurora, Quezon, and Bicol Region will experience cloudy skies with light rains.

The rest of Luzon, including Metro Manila, will be dampened by some isolated light rains, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) noted in its 4 a.m. advisory.

Despite this, Badrina said that the northeast monsoon may still bring “generally fair weather.”

Overcast skies and light rains are likewise expected to prevail over Palawan and parts of Eastern Visayas also due to the northeast monsoon.

“That’s the area of Samar provinces including Biliran and Leyte provinces,” Badrina explained in Filipino, referring to the areas in Visayas which may experience the most rainfall.

The rest of the Visayas, including Central and Northern Visayas, may also experience overcast skies with isolated light rains.


Meanwhile, in Mindanao, the trough of an LPA will bring light to moderate rainfall, the specialist added.

Caraga and Davao Region may experience cloudy skies with scattered rain showers and thunderstorms due to the trough of an LPA.

According to Badrina, the LPA is located south of the Philippines near the equator.

“For the rest of Mindanao, there are chances of isolated rain showers and thunderstorms,” he continued.

Pagasa said that they are still not monitoring any LPA forming within the Philippine area of responsibility on Monday.
