PH will be storm-free until end of January — Pagasa
MANILA, Philippines — No storm may develop and affect the country for the rest of January, but the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) expects the effects of the northeast monsoon to intensify in the coming days.
“Ang good news ay wala naman tayong minomonitor na sama ng panahon na posibleng makaapekto sa ating bansa hanggang matapos ang buwan ng Enero 2021. Ngayon pong January nakikita natin hindi na tayo magkakaroon ng bagyo in the next five days hanggang matapos ang buwan ng Enero,” Pagasa weather specialist Ariel Rojas said in a weather forecast on Wednesday morning.
(The good news is we don’t see any weather disturbance that could affect the country until the end of January 2021. This January, we don’t see that there would be any storm that would affect the country in the next five days, which will cover the end of the month.)
Currently, the northeast monsoon is expected to bring cloudy skies with rains in Bicol Region, Aurora, and Quezon, and partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated light rains in Metro Manila and the rest of Luzon.
Once the amihan intensifies, it will bring cold weather in affected areas especially at midnight and in the morning, according to Rojas.
“Mararamdaman din ‘yan sa Metro Manila especially pagdating ng weekend, at of course magiging malamig po ang panahon sa northern Luzon. Kasama rin diyan ang Laoag, Baguio at Tuguegarao at maging ang Tagaytay,” he added.
(It will be felt in Metro Manila especially on the weekend, and of course there will be cold weather in northern Luzon, as well as in Laoag, Baguio, Tuguegarao ang Tagaytay.)
“Sa paglakas po ng amihan sa mga susunod na araw magdadala rin po yan ng pag-ulan especially sa eastern side ng ating bansa,” Rojas also said.
(As the amihan intensifies in the coming days, it will also bring rains especially in the eastern side of the country.)
Samar provinces, meanwhile, will experience cloudy skies with scattered rain showers and thunderstorms due to the easterlies or warm winds coming from the Pacific Ocean.
The rest of the country will have partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rain showers due to localized thunderstorms, according to Pagasa.
