So far, it’s a sunny day on the 35th anniversary of EDSA People Power Revolution.


According to the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA), easterlies or the warm and humid rains originating from the Pacific Ocean may bring partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated light rains over Metro Manila and the rest of the country.

“Ngayong araw po ay asahan natin ang maaraw na panahon dito sa malaking bahagi ng Luzon, with the exception of extreme Northern Luzon kung saan may party cloudly to cloudly skies at mayroong mga isolated light rains (Today, we expect sunny, fair weather here in the large part of Luzon, with the exception of Northern Luzon which will have partly cloudy to cloudy and may experience isolated light rains,” weather specialist Benison Estareja said in a livestreamed 4 a.m. weather forecast.

He said the remaining part of Luzon will experience fair weather conditions, but may experience hot and humid noon due to the easterlies.

Estareja warned that easterlies may bring localized thunderstorms to certain parts of the country, including Bicol and Mimaropa regions, in the afternoon.

He cautioned the public that flash floods or landslides may occur during severe thunderstorms.

He said the localised thunderstorm that may be experienced in Zamboanga Peninsula this morning is not any way connected with a low pressure area (LPA) or tropical cyclone.

Estareja said the public can brace for generally fair weather conditions until the end of the month, as there will be a “low chance” that a weather disturbance will develop.

He said in the next two to three weeks, northeast monsoon or “amihan” may continue to linger, but is expected to weaken.

The amihan will continue to affect few areas, which include eastern section of Visayas, and Luzon.

PAGASA said no gale warning has been raised.
