Recent observations and analysis showed that the general wind pattern has shifted from southwesterly to easterly. This signifies that the southwest monsoon season has officially ended. Moreover, the strengthening of the high pressure systems over the Asian continent has led to the gradual changing of the season.

With these developments, the climate of the Philippines is on transition to the northeast monsoon "Amihan" season in the coming days.
