MANILA, Philippines - Wednesday's weather condition is expected to gradually improve as storm "Haikui" moves toward the southern part of China, according to Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) forecaster Bernie de Leon.
"Ang good news dito, magkakaroon ng gradual improvement tomorrow dahil 'yong nag-e-enhance na nasa labas ng Philippine area of responsibility na si Haikui ay inaasahang lalayo na papuntang silangang bahagi ng China" De Leon told a radio station at about 11:30 p.m., Tuesday.
[The good news here is that there will be gradual improvement tomorrow because Haikui, which is outside the Philippine area of responsibility, is expected to move farther toward the southern portion of China.]
There is no storm in the Philippines but heavy rains continue to pound areas in Central and Western Luzon due to a southwest monsoon, which is being enhanced by Haikui.
As of Tuesday night, Metro Manila remains under Pagasa's red warning, the highest alert warning for rains.
"Still red code ang rainfall warning. Of course kasi ang mga kalye natin sa NCR and nearby provinces binabaha pa rin so di maibaba ang red code," said De Leon.
[The rainfall warning is still under code red. Of course, because the streets in the National Capital Region and nearby provinces remain flooded, so we cannot downgrade the red code.]
