The Amihan Season is definitely not over yet! The cold and dry air from Siberia is back, particularly affecting extreme Northern Luzon. Compared to the previous weeks, its effect is much weaker and will only be felt in Batanes and Calayan Group of Islands.
Meanwhile, Easterlies remain dominant in the eastern section of the archipelago. These are warm and humid winds coming from the Pacific Ocean that cause rising temperatures. In the next hours, Metro Manila and the rest of the country will experience generally fair weather apart from the isolated rain showers or thunderstorms.
Moderate to occasionally strong winds will affect Northern Luzon, where coastal waters are expected to be moderate to occasionally rough. The remaining parts of the archipelago can expect slight to moderate seas, which will be favorable for sea travelers and those who are hitting the beach this weekend.
As we approach the tag-init, Panahon TV monitors the escalating temperatures. Here are the highest temperatures recorded yesterday:
Earth Hour 2017
In the latest report from the World Meteorological Organization (WMO), record-breaking weather events were recorded in 2016. These include ocean heat, lower sea ice extent and sea level rise. With global sea level touching record highs, the sea ice coverage of the Earth dropped to more than four square kilometers below the average in November. WMO warns the public that these extreme weather events are more likely to prevail this year.
The Philippines, despite being a small country, faces big challenges when it comes to calamities. Our country has been actively participating in this event since 2008. This year, we will once again join millions of people around the world as we celebrate Earth Hour.
Earth Hour is a global movement wherein participants switch-off lights for an hour as a symbol of unity in energy conservation and love for our planet. Spearheaded by the World Wide Fund (WWF) – Philippines, the main switch-off event will be held at the SM by the Bay, Mall of Asia Complex, Pasay City this evening. The program will start at 7:00 PM until 10:00 PM, wherein lights will be turned off from 8:30 PM to 9:30 PM. Together, let us shine a light on climate action!
