Warmer days looming, says Pagasa

Time to put those jackets back in your closet.
This, as the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) reports that warmer days are coming.
PAGASA weather forecaster Alvin Pura said the state weather bureau recorded a 20.9 degree Celsius in Science Garden in Quezon on early Tuesday. He notes that trend shows warmer days are ahead.
“This is higher than the ones we recorded the previous week, which says that temperatures will gradually start to rise up these coming weeks,” Pura told Yahoo! Southeast Asia.
Pura explained the warmer temperature is being brought in by another weather system called the Easterlies, which has been overpowering the weakening cold and dry surge of Northeast Monsoon.
He noted that the Easterlies has been blowing in temperatures from hot and humid North Pacific Ocean and bringing them into the country.
“We are witnessing that Northeast monsoon (Hanging Amihan) is weakening. In the weekend, we expect a surge in the monsoon so we may experience one of the last cold weekends,” Pura said.
“But this surge may not be strong enough for us to feel the nice cool weather in the previous weeks,” he added.
Pura explained the Easterlies usually prevails, ushering the country to summer.
PAGASA has been reporting unusually cold weather in the country including the 10 degrees Celsius in Baguio City on January 24.
The state weather bureau also recorded an 18.5 degrees Celsius in Tagaytay, which had the lowest drop in temperature to 17.6 degrees on January 15.
It also recorded 19.5 degree Celsius as the official lowest temperature experienced in Manila for this year last January 17.
