Amihan, the refreshing north-east monsoon is now blowing at entire power. Embedded inside this powerful air-stram is a cold entrance. This entrance is marked by the cloud band commencing among the Philippines and Taiwan likely north-east towards Japan.
This contemporary north-jap wind straight impacts Luzon and Bicol (mild blue). It marks also the start of the windsurfing and kiteboarding year in Boracay.
In the southern Visayas and Mindanao, this cold air-stream isn’t so robust. There it meets the warmer and humid north equator stream (orange). This stream is also termed “Easterlies”. This humid air cools down and can not hold any more all the drinking water. The final result is weighty rain. Ordinarily this weather lasts until finally conclude of January / commence of February.
Sorry, but this is the improper instant to check out the southern islands these kinds of as Siquijor or Camiguin. Also northern Mindanao from Butuan to Iligan is damp.
