NORTHEAST MONSOON (AMIHAN) has come to naught eventually – now replaced by warmer winds from the Tropical Pacific, referred to as ”EASTERLIES” or EASTERLY TRADE WINDS, which brings warmer weather where mostly cloudy (overcast) skies, with passing occasional to scattered light to at times moderate rain showers or thunderstorms across BATANES & BABUYAN ISLAND GROUP, EASTERN & SOUTHERN LUZON, including the NCR, BICOL REGION, MIMAROPA, VISAYAS, NORTHERN & EASTERN MINDANAO.
Meanwhile, we are still watching the slow moving Tropical Disturbance (LPA) 95W off the Eastern coast of Mindanao. Its disorganized rain bands may also reach for the shores of Mindanao and Southern part of Eastern Visayas yet again, within the next 12-24 hours. It is highly recommended that we continue to monitor its progress, and do the necessary precautions against potential flooding and or landslides in identified threat zones.
THE REST OF THE COUNTRY will have some cloud cover with chances of having isolated to scattered rain showers and thunderstorms in places.
Important note: In the infrared (IR) satellite image shown above: BLUE areas indicate Clear Skies with a Few Clouds; GREEN = Partly to Mostly Cloudy Skies; YELLOW = Mostly Cloudy to Hazy Skies with Possible Slight-to-Moderate Rainfall; and RED = Thunderstorms with Moderate to Heavy to sometimes Extreme Rainfall.
