MANILA, Philippines — Metro Manila and some parts of the country are expected to have a cloudy weather on Wednesday and in the coming days as temperatures are expected to drop due to the northeast monsoon or amihan, the state weather bureau said.
Metro Manila, for one, will have a temperature range of 24 to 32 degrees Celsius, according to the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa). This will persist until Saturday as the northeast monsoon, or amihan, affects the entire Luzon.
“Asahan natin ang fair weather condition sa Thursday na sasamahan lang ng mababang tiyansa ng pag-ulan pagsapit ng hapon. Sa umaga at tanghali ay mostly cloudy skies naman, so hindi ganoon kainitan,” Pagasa senior weather specialist Benison Estareja said.
