Recent analyses showed that a significant weakening of the Southwest Monsoon has been observed over the last few days. Moreover, the strengthening of the high-pressure area over the Asian continent has led to the gradual changing of the season.
With these developments, the Southwest Monsoon season or known locally as "Habagat" is now officially over. The season in the Philippines is on the process of transition and will be expecting the gradual start of the Northeast Monsoon (NE) season in the coming days with a shift in the direction of the winds.
Meanwhile, with the on-going La Niña, the NE monsoon may be enhanced that could trigger floods, flashfloods and rain-induced landslides over susceptible areas. Therefore, all concerned government agencies and the public are advised to take precautionary measures to mitigate the potential impacts of these events.
