Except for extreme Northern Luzon, the rest of the country will continue to experience warm and humid weather because of a ridge of high pressure area, which is associated with clear skies, according to Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA).
The HPA, which is the opposite of the low pressure area (LPA), is associated with light winds, less rainclouds, and drier air.
Due to the presence of trough of low pressure area affecting extreme Northern Luzon, cloudy skies with light to moderate rains and isolated thunderstorms will be experienced over Batanes, Calayan and Babuyan Group of Islands.
The presence of HPA will bring high temperatures and good weather condition in the coming days as the state weather bureau advised people to wear lightweight and light-colored clothing, and drink plenty of water.
PAGASA said residents of places directly hit by the heat of the sun, without trees, and surrounded by concrete roads would feel much hotter.
Despite a warmer weather, the occurrence of isolated rains will still prevail due to localized thunderstorms expected mostly in the afternoon or evening.
PAGASA explained that the convective activity brought about by intense heat triggers the formation of more cumulonimbus clouds or dark clouds associated with thunderstorms that brings rains. (PNA)
