Except for rains from the northeast monsoon, the Philippines may finally expect a cyclone-free weekend after experiencing stormy ones since late September.
The Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) said there is no weather disturbance likely to affect the country this weekend.
“Sa ngayon wala, malayo ang posibilidad [na] may makapasok (For now there is no weather disturbance likely to enter Philippine territory this weekend),” Pagasa forecaster Arnel Gonzales said in an interview on dzBB radio Friday.
But Gonzales said there may still be some rains brought by the northeast monsoon in Luzon and Visayas. A wind convergence will affect Mindanao, he added.
These may bring cloudy skies and rainshowers, he said.
