‘Habagat’ weakens

State weather bureau Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration on Friday disclosed that most parts of the country may experience fair weather conditions this weekend as the southwest monsoon, or habagat begins to weaken.

In its weather outlook, PAGASA said that warm and humid weather conditions may prevail due to the easterlies or warm winds from the Pacific Ocean, adding that the southwest monsoon may shift westward, leading to the prevalence of the easterlies.

Meanwhile, the low-pressure area off north-northeast of Itbayat, Batanes is expected to dissipate in the next 12 hours.

However, PAGASA weather specialist Aldczar Aurelio said habagat is still bringing rain, especially in areas in Southern Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao.

Although isolated downpours and thunderstorms are expected in some parts in the afternoon or at night, Aurelio said fair weather conditions will prevail across the country.

Meanwhile, Zambales, Bataan, Palawan, Occidental Mindoro, Western Visayas, Zamboanga Peninsula, Northern Mindanao and Caraga will experience overcast skies with scattered rain showers and thunderstorms due to habagat.
