According to a report from CNN Philippines, the Amihan season is getting weaker due to the presence of the warm and damp easterlies. PAGASA weather forecaster Aldczar Aurelio said, “Ngayon ay unti-unti nang umiinit ang panahon dahil papalapit na tayo sa tag-init. At sa Amihan season ay maaring magtapos by average, kalagitnaan ng March at maaring umabot ng April. Ito yung nararanasan natin na humihina na yung Amihan.”
In a weather advisory issued on March 8, the weather forecaster said that Metro Manila’s temperature could reach 35°C on March 9, but occasional thunderstorms may still occur.
