Amihan brings rains to Metro Manila
MANILA, Philippines – The light to moderate rains experienced in Metro Manila and nearby areas on Tuesday morning were caused by the northeast monsoon (amihan), the state weather bureau said.
Speaking to radio dzMM, Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) forecaster Meno Mendoza said the capital should experience improved weather conditions starting tomorrow until the weekend.
Moreover, Mendoza assured no potential cyclone is present within the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) as of the moment.
Mendoza said that aside from Metro Manila, Cagayan Valley, Aurora, and the Calabarzon region are expected to have cloudy skies with isolated rains during the day.
PAGASA said due to the diffused tail-end of a cold front, Bicol region and eastern Visayas are expected to have cloudy skies with light to moderate rains.
The rest of the country will be partly cloudy with isolated rains or thunderstorms, particularly over central Visayas, northern Mindanao, Caraga and Davao region.
