MANILA (Mabuhay) – Parched parts of the country including Mindanao may have to wait until late May or early June for rain, state weather agency PAGASA said.

PAGASA forecaster Alvin Pura said there may be localized thunderstorms but these may be few and far between.

Inaasahan sa May to June, posibleng magkaroon ng ulan or thunderstorm,” he said.

By then, he said the southwest monsoon could enter and bring rain and thunderstorms to parts of the country.

For now, however, he said the easterlies or warm winds from the east will continue to affect the country.

Ngayon mainit tayo. May thunderstrom na localized sa hapon at gabi pero bihira,” he said.(MNS)
