/ 07:30 AM February 19, 2024

MANILA, Philippines — Most of the country will have isolated rain showers due to the effects of the easterlies on Monday, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) said.

The easterlies are warm winds blowing from the Pacific Ocean.


In a morning report, Pagasa specialist Obet Badrina said that the easterlies would bring overcast skies and rains over most of Luzon, including Metro Manila.

“Much of Luzon will experience partly to mostly cloudy skies with chances of isolated rain showers, thunderstorms, and lightning, typically occurring from the afternoon until the evening,” Badrina noted in Filipino.

Similarly, most of the Visayas and Mindanao will have partly cloudy to cloudy skies with chances of isolated rain showers and thunderstorms from the afternoon until the evening.

Badrina also mentioned that despite the possibility of rain, the easterlies would bring hot and humid weather to several areas in the country.

He noted that key cities in the country will have warm weather on Monday, especially during high noon, with temperatures reaching 33ºC in Metro Manila, the Kalayaan Group of Islands, and Metro Davao, and 34ºC in Zamboanga City.

This is because the cold northeast monsoon, locally known as amihan, is no longer affecting the country.

As for the country’s seaboards, Badrina said that no gale warning is hoisted in any coastal area as slight to moderate wave heights, which may be as high as 2.5 meters, will prevail.

State meteorologists do not anticipate any weather disturbances forming or entering the Philippine area of responsibility on Monday.
