MANILA – A fair weather with isolated rain showers will continue to prevail across the country Tuesday, a weather forecaster said.
"Most parts of Luzon, including Metro Manila, will have warm and humid weather. Isolated rains are still likely, and thunderstorms may be experienced in the afternoon or evening so one should bring an umbrella," Ariel Rojas of the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) said.
Warm and humid weather will also prevail over the Visayas and Mindanao. Thunderstorms are likely in the afternoon and at night, Rojas said.
In its 4 a.m. forecast, PAGASA said light to moderate winds and slight to moderate seas will prevail over the entire archipelago.
Typhoon Mindulle was last tracked 1,485 kilometers east of extreme Northern Luzon, outside the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR).
"It has slightly intensified, and is moving slowly near the eastern boundary of PAR," Rojas said.
Mindulle has no direct effect on any part of the country, he added.
"Mindulle may enter PAR on Tuesday night or early Wednesday, and will be given the local name, 'Lannie'. It is still not expected to have an effect on the weather," he said, adding that it is also possible that it would no longer enter PAR.
Rojas said PAGASA is also monitoring a tropical depression over 3,000 kilometers away from PAR, but this is not expected to affect the country.
"Other than Mindulle and the tropical depression, we are not expecting any weather disturbance in the next two to three days," he said. (PNA)
