Bohol will continue to experience warm weather due to the Southwest Monsoon according to the Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration-Bohol (PAG-ASA)
Warm and humid weather conditions will persist until the end of October, said Leonard Samar, officer-in-charge of PAG-ASA Bohol.
Samar explained that the lingering southwest monsoon is bringing warm and damp winds and not causing rains.
He noted that present warm weather conditions are no different from those experienced from March to May, this year.
Even amid the entry of storms and low pressure areas into the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) , Bohol will not be directly affected, particularly by winds and heavy rains these would likely bring, he said.
According to Samar, weather disturbances being monitored by the weather bureau will be moving toward the countryâ€™s capital region until October.
The trend has caused the persisting warm and dry weather in the Visayas and Mindanao, he added.
There are at most four storms expected to enter the PAR in the following weeks, but the PAG-ASA official is confident that these will not be directly affecting Bohol.
Samar also said that the northeast monsoon will be replacing the southwest monsoon in October and will be bringing cool weather and constant rains.
Although the southwest monsoon prevails in the region, rains are still expected to pour, but sparingly. (Allen Doydora)
