Maximum Temperatures Expected as Northeast Monsoon Weakens

In the Philippines, the maximum temperatures will be felt in the coming days as the northeast monsoon, also known as “amihan,” continues to weaken, according to the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA).

Based on the three-day extended weather outlook, PAGASA stated that the easterlies will become the dominant weather system. This means that major cities like Baguio City, Legazpi, and Metro Manila can expect to record maximum temperatures starting at noon until the afternoon.

Fair Weather Across Most Parts of the Country

Despite the change in weather system, it will still be fair weather in most parts of the country, including Metro Manila. However, there may still be chances of light rains caused by the weakening amihan over the next 24 hours, according to PAGASA.

Meanwhile, in Metro Cebu, Iloilo City, and Tacloban in Visayas, as well as Metro Davao, Cagayan de Oro, and Zamboanga in Mindanao, it will be hot and humid with chances of thunderstorms in the afternoon or at night due to the easterlies.

No Incoming Weather Disturbances

PAGASA Weather Specialist Daniel James Villamil assured that there are no low-pressure areas being monitored inside and outside the Philippine area of responsibility that may affect the country in the coming days.

As of Saturday, no gale warning has been issued, indicating that it is safe for small seacraft to navigate the waters.

It is important to note that weather conditions can vary across different regions and cities in the Philippines. Local laws, customs, and geographic factors may also impact how these weather systems are experienced. Therefore, it is always advisable to stay updated with the latest weather forecasts and follow any advisories or warnings issued by PAGASA or local authorities.
