Southwest monsoon to intensify, to bring rain across PH — Pagasa

THE southwest monsoon, locally known as “habagat” will intensify in the next few days and will dump rains across the country, the state-run weather bureau said Saturday.

“While there is no tropical cyclone or any weather disturbances that are expected to enter the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) for the next few days, we may expect rainshowers due to Habagat,” weather specialist Patrick del Mundo said.

The Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) said that habagat continues to prevail over the western portion of Southern Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao.

It will bring cloudy skies with isolated rainshowers and thunderstorms in Palawan, Western Visayas, Zamboanga peninsula, Northern Mindanao and Caraga, for Saturday.

Meanwhile, generally fair weather will prevail in Luzon over the next 24 hours, except for isolated rainshowers and thunderstorms in the afternoon and evening, Pagasa said.

Metro Manila and the rest of the country may have partly cloudy to cloudy skies, with scattered rainshowers mostly by afternoon.

Moreover, no gale warning is up in the seaboards Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao, according to Pagasa.
