Furthermore, Eclarino said they have not detected any weather disturbance or any low-pressure area inside the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR).

“Until mahuman ang April is less likely na magkaroon ng bagyo,” Eclarino said.

Eclarino said that Pagasa’s El Niño Advisory No. 10 issued on April 5, mentions that the weather phenomenon was expected to persist from March to May this year.
