Three provinces seen to have dangerous heat index

THE provinces of Ilocos Norte, Cagayan and Pangasinan will likely have a «dangerous» heat index of between 45 degrees Celsius and 47 degrees Celsius, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) said Monday.

The National Capital Region will swelter at 43 degrees Celsius until Tuesday based on Pagasa's two-day forecast, weather specialist Robert Badrina said.

The air temperature in Metro Manila and Tuguegarao City could reach the maximum for the day at 35 degrees Celsius, the weather bureau said.

It will be another hot day in most areas due to the easterlies except for isolated rain showers and thunderstorms late in the afternoon or at night, Badrina said.

Last week, the weather agency said a tropical cyclone could enter the Philippine Area of Responsibility this week but Pagasa Administrator Nathaniel Servando told The Manila Times via Viber that their latest analysis indicates that no storm will develop.
