ONSET OF THE NORTHEAST MONSOON

26 October 2018

For the past several days, strong to gale force northeasterly winds has prevailed over the seaboards of Northern Luzon. Moreover, gradual cooling of surface air temperature over Northern Luzon has been observed. These meteorological conditions signify that the onset of the Northeast Monsoon season has started.

With these developments, the northeast wind flow is expected to further intensify and become dominant over most parts of the country, bringing cold and dry air. Surges of cold temperatures may also be expected in the coming days.
