PAGASA: Rain over PH unlikely due to HPA ridge

The high-pressure area (HPA) ridge extending over the eastern sections of Northern and Central Luzon made rain unlikely over the country, PAGASA said Monday.

“Kapag ridge of HPA ang nakakaapektong weather system, posible ‘yun nga mas mababang pag-ulan sa areas na apektado nito… Halos walang kaulapan o kakaunti ang kaulapan na makikita natin sa bansa,” weather specialist Veronica Torres said.

(There is a lower chance of rain in areas affected by the ridge of the HPA. It will be almost cloudless over the country.)

In its 24-hour public forecast, PAGASA said the localized thunderstorms may still bring partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rain showers or thunderstorms over Metro Manila and the rest of the country.

The weather bureau warned the public against possible flash floods or landslides during severe thunderstorms in the affected areas.

Meanwhile, winds over the country would be light to moderate, with coastal conditions to be slight to moderate.

Temperatures over Metro Manila rose to a high of 35 °C at 2:45 p.m.

Sunrise on Tuesday would be at 5:52 a.m. — DVM, GMA Integrated News
