The past few days have seen a slight weakening of the Northeast Monsoon leading to relatively warmer temperatures. Much of the country has also seen quieter weather even in the eastern sections.

We expect a return of the cool weather this week as another surge of the Amihan should set in by Tuesday. A cold-front could bring some light rains into Northern Luzon over the next few days. Meanwhile, a tropical wave associated with the easterlies could bring a period of light to moderate rain across parts of Visayas and Mindanao by tomorrow.
3-Day Forecast (NOT OFFICIAL!)
We are forecasting generally clear weather for much of the Philippines with the exception of the southern half of the country. Luzon should see partly cloudy skies with little to no chance of rain. Cooler weather will try to make a comeback following a cold front passage by Tuesday. A weak disturbance could reach Mindanao tomorrow which could bring rains of up to 30mm in some areas which may trigger minor flooding or flash floods.
Except for isolated rains and thunderstorms in the afternoon, the rest of the week is looking rather quiet with no major rain maker in sight. We'll have another update on Wednesday, February 6.
