‘Amihan’ to bring rains, rough seas

Tropical cyclone “Nina” (international name: “Nock-Ten”) may already be out of the Philippine area of responsibility, but the weather bureau warns against rainy weather and rough seas due to the northeast monsoon (“amihan”).

In its 24-hour weather forecast  issued at 5 p.m. yesterday, the Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) said the northeast monsoon would continue to affect northern Luzon and bring cloudy skies with light rains over the Ilocos, Cordillera and Cagayan Valley regions.

Partly moderate to strong winds blowing from the northeast will prevail over northern Luzon, causing its coastal waters to be moderate to rough, Pagasa said, in its forecast.


“Even if Typhoon Nina has left, we still expect strong waves, so it’s still dangerous to go out to sea,” Pagasa forecaster Aldczar Aurelio said in Filipino., in a weather update yesterday.

Aurelio said Nina no longer had any direct effect on the Philippines, and will continue to weaken due to the effects of the northeast monsoon.
