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.

Expect longer nights and shorter days after the occurrence of autumnal equinox last Tuesday night (September 22), according to the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA).

An equinox in Latin, means ‘equal night’. PAGASA explained that it is when day and night are of approximately equal duration all over the planet. After the autumnal equinox, the country will experience longer nights and shorter days due to the Sun traversing its shortest path of the year at the time of the winter solstice.

“Philippine nights will be longer as the sun moves below the celestial equator towards the southern hemisphere,” PAGASA said.

PAGASA also clarified that the equinox will not affect the change of temperature in the country. AAC
