Amihan Entering The Philippines Next Week, Says PAGASA

After Super Typhoon Lawin hit the Philippines, Amihan is on her way and probably entering the PAR next week.

The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) announced on Friday, October 21, that Amihan season also called as the Northeast monsoon is coming to the Philippines next week.

According to PAGASA Forecaster Gener Quitlong, Amihan season is the time when the whole country can feel a cooler breeze of air.

From the usual 25 to 25 degrees Celsius, the temperature goes lower to 18 to 22 degrees Celsius.

Although the majority of the Filipinos get excited as the Amihan season enters because it decreases humidity, PAGASA warns that it brings with it some changes and might mean more typhoons will cross the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR).

It is because most of the tropical depressions entering the PAR coming from the Pacific Ocean usually make landfall because they are being pushed by Amihan.

According to the state weather agency, there are approximately six to eight weather disturbances that are yet to enter the Philippine Area of responsibility before 2016 comes to an end.

Meanwhile, for the latest updates on super typhoon Lawin, please continue reading on the next page.
