MANILA, Philippines – The northeast monsoon or ‘hanging Amihan’ is bringing cold breeze to Luzon while the easterlies are affecting the eastern sections of Visayas and Mindanao, the state weather service PAGASA said.

Cloudy skies with light rains is expected in the areas of Cordillera Administrative Region, Cagayan Valley, and the provinces of Aurora and Quezon on Friday (December 13) with windy conditions in coastal and mountainous areas due to the effects of the Northeast Monsoon.

Meanwhile, portions of Visayas, Caraga and Palawan will experience cloudy skies with scattered rainshowers and thunderstorms due to the effects of the easterlies.

Metro Manila and the rest of Luzon, on the other hand, will have partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated light rains throughout the day.

The rest of the country may expect partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rainshowers due to localized thunderstorms.

During such weather condition, flashfloods and landslides may happen in affected areas so residents are still advised to take appropriate measures.

Several parts of the Philippines will be able to witness the annular solar eclipse on December 26, according to PAGASA.

“An annular eclipse happens when the moon is farthest from Earth. Because the moon is farther away from Earth, it seems smaller and does not block the entire view of the sun thus creating a ‘ring of fire’ effect,” according to PAGASA.

The annular eclipse will be observed in the southernmost part of Davao Occidental.

According to PAGASA, the best site of observation is in Balut and Batulaki, Sarangani Island, Davao Occidental while other parts of the country will observe it as partial solar eclipse.

The earliest start of the eclipse will begin at 12:32 p.m. in Manila while it will begin at 12:43 p.m. in Balut Island. —AAC
