By Juzel L. Danganan

MANILA, July 12 (PNA) – Typhoon “Nangka” will brings rains to the country by Wednesday, as it will pull the strength of the Southwest Monsoon or “Hangin Habagat”, the Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) said.

Starting Wednesday typhoon “Nangka” will pull “Habagat” to the country, bringing rains based on our latest data,” PAGASA weather forecaster Buddy Javier told PNA in a phone interview Sunday.

However, he noted typhoon “Nangka” will unlikely enter the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR), which was estimated 1,685 kilometers (km) South East of North Luzon as of 4:00 p.m.

But, Javier said typhoon “Nangka” will continue to be felt in the country until Thursday due to the Southwest Monsoon.

Meanwhile, he added no other weather formations are seen near the PAR.

From Sunday to Tuesday, the PAGASA weather forecaster expects the Southwest Monsoon – better-known as “Hangin Habagat” – will keep affecting the country. It usually brings rains to the country from April to October. (PNA)
