by Malou Talosig-Bartolome

Monday, is another grinding day. Generally, good and comfortable weather in Luzon and most of Visayas and Mindanao today, state weather forecaster Pagasa said.

Aldzcar Aurelio, Pagasa weather specialist, said the easterlies or the hot wind from the Pacific Ocean would bring hot weather to the country.

Meanwhile, Eastern Samar, Southern Leyte, and Surigao del Norte experienced heavy rains at dawn today due to the Inter-Tropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ).

Aurelio said they are not monitoring any low-pressure area within the Philippine Area of Responsibility.

The Northeast monsoon (hanging amihan) is not yet felt in the country, but northern Luzon residents may start feeling the chill on Wednesday and Thursday.
