MANILA, Philippines - Fair weather will continue to prevail throughout the country the rest of the week.

Rene Paciente, chief of the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA)’s marine meteorological services section, yesterday said no tropical cyclone is likely to enter the Philippine area of responsibility (in the next three to five days.

However, PAGASA said occasional rains are still expected over Bataan, Zambales and Pangasinan within the next 24 hours due to the southwest monsoon, which was enhanced by Typhoon Ineng.

PAGASA advised operators of fishing boats and small sea vessels not to venture out to the seaboards of Northern and Central Luzon and the western seaboard of Southern Luzon due to big waves generated by the enhanced southwest monsoon.

Ineng exited the Philippine area of responsibility after midnight Monday after leaving at least 20 people dead and more than P165 million in damage to infrastructure and agriculture.

 Dams

 Ineng replenished the dams in drought-hit provinces in Luzon.

As of 6 a.m. yesterday, Ambuklao and Binga dams – both in Benguet – continued to release excess water. 

Two gates of San Roque dam in Pangasinan also remained opened as of yesterday morning, according to PAGASA. 

The water level in Angat dam, which supplies around 97 percent of Metro Manila’s water demands, also increased to 184.33 meters as of 6 a.m. yesterday from 182.57 meters the other day.
