TERMINATION OF THE NORTHEAST MONSOON

20 March 2020

The gradual shift of wind direction from northeasterly to easterly over most parts of the country due to the establishment of the High Pressure Area (HPA) over the Northwestern Pacific Ocean signifies the termination of the Northeast Monsoon and the start of dry season. With this development, the day-to-day weather across the country will gradually become warmer, though isolated thunderstorms are also likely to occur.

The public is advised to take precautionary measures to minimize heat stress and optimize the daily use of water for personal and domestic consumption.

Despite the on-going enhanced community quarantine due to Covid-19, PAGASA will continue to monitor our day-to-day weather and long-term climate situation.
