Rainy weather till Sunday

THE Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) yesterday said many parts of the country will continue to experience cloudy and rainy weather until Sunday because of the tail-end of a cold front and the northeast monsoon.

Weather forecaster Shiela Reyes said the cold front, which is the merging of cool and warm winds, will bring cloudy skies with light to occasionally heavy rains to the eastern section of southern Luzon until Sunday.

Northern and central Luzon and the western portion of southern Luzon, including Metro Manila, will have partly cloudy to cloudy skies with passing light rains due to the northeast monsoon.

The northeast monsoon or “hanging amihan” is the cold air from Siberia that normally blows into the country from mid-October to early March.

The rest of the country will have generally fair weather aside from isolated rains due to localized thunderstorms.

Reyes said a new low pressure area from the Pacific Ocean may enter the Philippine area of responsibility on Wednesday if it does not change direction or dissipate.
