Habagat season has officially ended, thus the start of the northeast monsoon or Amihan season in the country.
The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) confirmed the weather transitions and expect to have colders days ahead.
The state weather bureau said the wind pattern has already shifted from southwesterly to easterly.
The growing high-pressure systems over the Asian continent cause the gradual changing of the seasons, PAGASA administrator Vicente Malano said.
“With these developments, the climate of the Philippines is on transition to the northeast monsoon in the coming days,” PAGASA added.
PAGASA said on its weather bulletin yesterday that Amihan wind flow is prevailing over Northern Luzon.
“Metro Manila and the rest of the country will have partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rain showers because of localized thunderstorms,” it said.
However, the winds from the northeast to east, and in the northern and eastern section of Luzon will be moderate to strong.
The rest of the country, meanwhile, will experience light to moderate winds coming from the northeast to east.
