Easterly winds with humid air prevailing in the Sulu area, where there are small convergences with cloud masses, may bring isolated rain showers, the state weather bureau reported.
Sonny Pajarilla, the local chief of the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA), said Monday that most parts of the country will experience easterly winds and humid air.
However, Puerto Princesa City will have dominant sunny and fair weather.
“Dahil easterlies ang umiiral, maaaring magdulot ‘yan ng orographic effect, babangga sa mga bundok ang ating easterly winds na medyo humid na maaaring magdulot ng isolated rain showers at least sa mga bundok ay meron at magkakaroon ng pagdaloy sa ating water resources,” Pajarilla said.
PAGASA officially announced the end of the northeast monsoon or amihan and the start of the dry or summer season in the country.
However, Pajarilla said there will still be an occasional occurrence of amihan that could affect the extreme northern Luzon.
He said the weather bureau is not expecting any weather system that could bring massive rainfall to the province before the end of March.
“Maaaring mayroon tayong low pressure system na mabuo na lalapit sa Pilipinas sa unang lingo ng Abril so most likely next week,” he added.
This would move towards the island of Mindanao on the first week of April, and it might dissolve immediately.
There is most likely chance of drought after the month of March added by Pajarilla even there will be an occurrence of rainfall in Palawan, this would not exceed 40 percent from the normal accumulated rainfall.
The wind blows in moderate condition as well as the sea current that will be favorable for fishermen to sail, he added.
