Warmer weather is expected in the coming days due to the termination of the northeast monsoon and the start of the dry season, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) on Friday.
The weather bureau explained that this is signified by the gradual shift of wind direction from northeasterly to easterly over most parts of the country due to the establishments of the high-pressure area (HPA) over the northwestern Pacific Ocean.
“With this development, the day-to-day weather across the country will gradually become warmer, though isolated thunderstorms are also likely to occur,” according to the official statement.
PAGASA advised the public to take precautionary measures to minimize heat stress and optimize the daily use of water for personal and domestic consumption.
Meanwhile, the state weather bureau stated that it will continue to monitor the day-to-day weather and long-term climate situation despite the ongoing enhanced community quarantine due to coronavirus disease (COVID-19).
