Fair weather prevails over PHL

MANILA, (PNA) — Except for extreme Northern Luzon, many parts of the country will experience fair weather in the next two days due to the weakening of the southwest monsoon or “hanging habagat”, the state weather forecaster said on Sunday.

Aurleio also said that so far the agency has not monitored any weather disturbance near the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR).

He added that at least three or four cyclones are expected to hit the country this peak month of September.

Aurelio said that until Tuesday most parts of the country including Metro Manila will have sunny to partly cloudy skies with possible passing rains in the afternoon or evening due to localized thunderstorms or convections.

In its advisory, PAGASA said that moderate to strong winds blowing from the south to southwest will prevail over Northern Luzon and its coastal waters will be moderate to rough.

Elsewhere, winds will be light to moderate coming from the east to southeast with slight to moderate seas.
