The cold weather has prompted a boom in sales of socks, gloves, and headgear, particularly in Baguio City, and other provinces in Northern Luzon according to a report by radio dzRH on Sunday. The report said such items sold like hotcakes especially in ukay-ukay (used clothing) shops.
The tail end of a cold front, and not any upcoming weather disturbance, is causing cold mornings in the first days of December according to state weather forecasters.
“Tail-end of a cold front (is) affecting the eastern sections of Visayas and Mindanao. Moderate to strong northeasterly surface windflow (is) prevailing over Luzon and Visayas,” the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) said in its bulletin as of 5 a.m., Sunday.
Ludy Alviar, Pagasa senior weather forecaster, said the agency would expect at least one cyclone to hit the country this month.
“Mga isa pero baka hindi na rin po (We expect one cyclone to hit this month but it is also possible it will not affect the country),” Alviar said on dzBB radio.
Meanwhile, Pagasa said Visayas and Mindanao would experience mostly cloudy skies with scattered rainshowers and thunderstorms becoming frequent over the eastern sections.
The rest of the country will have partly cloudy to at times cloudy skies with isolated rainshowers.
Moderate to strong winds blowing from the northeast will prevail over Luzon and Visayas and the coastal waters along these areas will be moderate to rough.
Elsewhere, winds will be light to moderate blowing from the northeast with slight to moderate. – GMANews.TV
