MANILA, Philippines—Expect a sunny weekend, the state weather bureau said Friday.

Based on the Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration’s (Pagasa) five-day weather outlook, a weak southwest monsoon will affect the whole country in the next five days.

“We anticipate a generally sunny, fair weather for the long weekend ahead, the best time to resume our usual weekend activities at home or elsewhere with our family and friends. It is also the best time to do and hang the laundry, and wash off the mud and dirt that built up during the recent monsoon rain and typhoon Helen,” Department of Science and Technology Secretary Mario Montejo said in a statement. Filipinos will have a long weekend as Monday and Tuesday have been declared regular holidays.

On Sunday, however, a shallow low pressure area is expected on the east of Luzon and will cause a southwesterly wind flow over the country, bringing light to moderate rains in Northern and Central Luzon and Mindanao.

But the weather outlook likewise does not indicate any tropical cyclone within the Philippine territory.

While the weather may be generally fair, the public should constantly bear in mind that some areas in Luzon are still flooded due to the rains from monsoon and Helen, Pagasa said.

“Our hearts go to our people who could not yet go back to normal living conditions and we hope that the good weather ahead will somehow help improve their situation,” it also said.
