MANILA, Philippines—Expect colder days ahead after the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) announced the onset of northeast monsoon or amihan season in the country.

PAGASA also observed gradual cooling of the surface air temperature over the northeastern part of Luzon.

“For the past several days, strong to gale-force northeasterly winds have prevailed over Northern Luzon due to the strengthening of the high-pressure system over Siberia and enhanced by passing of low- pressure areas (LPAs),” according to PAGASA

Surges of cold temperatures may also be expected in the coming months, the state weather bureau added.

Meanwhile, with the on-going La Niña, NE monsoon rainfall may be enhanced and could trigger floods, flash floods, and rain-induced landslides over susceptible areas. PAGASA reminded local government units and the public to take precautionary measures. AAC
