TERMINATION OF THE NORTHEAST MONSOON

22 March 2019

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

The on-going weak El Niño affecting large areas of the country may result in prolonged dry spell and hotter air temperatures in the coming months.

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