TERMINATION OF THE SOUTHWEST MONSOON

04 October 2018

Recent analyses showed a significant weakening of the southwest monsoon winds over the last few days. With this development, the southwest monsoon season or known as "Habagat" has ended.

Moreover, the strengthening of the high pressure systems over the Asian continent suggests the gradual transition of the season. This pattern will lead to the beginning of the northeast monsoon "Amihan" season in the coming days.
