PAGASA: Southwest Monsoon weakened enough to miss the Philippines landmass


WEATHER UPDATE — On August 12, Friday, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) announced the southwest monsoon (habagat) is still present but has weakened.

“The southwest monsoon still affects Central and Southern Luzon, but you can notice the clouds are not reaching the Philippine landmass,” PAGASA forecaster Ezra Bulquerin said. 

Looking at the satellite imagery, PAGASA spotted no formation of any weather disturbances, so that we can expect fair weather for the next three days.

Areas in Metro Manila and the rest of the country will experience partly cloudy skies with isolated rain showers or thunderstorms, especially at noon and night.

PAGASA warned that landslides or flash floods are still possible during heavy thunderstorms.

For areas in the western section of Luzon, light to moderate winds and slight to moderate waves are expected. The country will also be experiencing light to moderate winds and slight to moderate seas. –WhatALife!/Zed
