Today, the whole archipelago will experience partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rain showers or thunderstorms due to the prevailing Easterlies.

The said weather system currently affects the eastern section of Luzon and Visayas.

Easterlies are winds coming from the east, passing through the Pacific Ocean, bringing warm and humid weather to the country. Everyone is advised to take precautionary measures against the expected rise in temperatures.

According to PAGASA Weather Forecaster Meno Mendoza, the country will remain storm-free until the next three days.

 

Northern Luzon should brace for rains induced by Typhoon Paeng.

At 3:00 a.m., the eye of the typhoon was spotted 740 kilometers east of Basco, Batanes. It has slightly intensified with maximum sustained winds of 200 kilometers per hour (kph), gustiness of up to 240 kph, moving west-northwest at 10 kph. According to PAGASA Weather Forecaster Ariel Rojas, light to moderate rains will prevail in Northern Luzon starting Friday. Tropical Cyclone Warning Signals may also be hoisted. The typhoon is expected to exit the Philippine Area of Responsibility on Saturday.

Today, the trough or extension of the typhoon will bring cloudy skies with scattered rain showers in Western Visayas, Zamboanga Peninsula, ARMM and Soccsksargen. Elsewhere, partly cloudy to cloudy skies prevail, but isolated rain showers are still possible due to localized thunderstorms.

PAGASA raised a gale warning off the northern seaboards of Northern Luzon and eastern seaboards of Luzon. Fisherfolk and those with small seacraft are advised not to venture out, while larger vessels are advised to take precautionary measures against rough to very rough sea conditions.

The Northeast Monsoon is still affecting Extreme Northern Luzon, while a possible trough of a Low Pressure Area (LPA) was spotted in Mindanao.
 
In an interview with PAGASA Weather Forecaster Meno Mendoza, he said that the LPA east of Mindanao is not expected to develop into a tropical cyclone but may still dampen some areas.
 
Today, Batanes and Babuyan Group of Islands will have cloudy skies with scattered rains. Meanwhile, Davao Region can expect cloudy skies with scattered rain showers and thunderstorm. In the rest of the country including Metro Manila, partly cloudy to cloudy skies will prevail only with isolated rain showers.
 

A Tropical Depression is brewing outside the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR).
 
According to PAGASA weather forecaster Sheilla Reyes, two Low Pressure Areas (LPA) are still being monitored. The one inside PAR, spotted at 420 kilometers (km) east of Hinatuan, Surigao del Sur, is expected to dissipate. However, the other LPA outside PAR may intensify into a Tropical Depression. Reyes said that the LPA was spotted at 1,975 km. east of Mindanao. Based on PAGASA’s analysis, it may develop into a Tropical Depression tomorrow and will be named ‘Basyang’, the country’s second tropical cyclone this 2018. It is forecast to enter PAR on Sunday or Monday.
 

 
On Monday evening or early Tuesday, it may hit Northern Mindanao and the southern part of Visayas before heading toward Palawan on Wednesday, February 14. PAGASA is not ruling out the possibility of the cyclone intensifying into a Tropical Storm (a cyclone with winds between 62 to 88 kilometers per hour) before landfall.
 
Although two weather disturbances surround the country, the Northeast Monsoon remains the dominant weather system. It will bring cloudy skies with scattered rains in the Cagayan Valley Region and Cordillera Administrative Region, while causing partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rains in Ilocos Region. In the rest of the country including Metro Manila, partly cloudy to cloudy skies, or generally fair weather with isolated rain showers will be experienced.
 
With the surge of Amihan, gale warning is still in effect in the northern and eastern seaboards of Northern Luzon. These include coasts of Batanes, the Babuyan Group of Islands, Ilocos Norte, Cagayan and Isabela. Fishing boats and other small seacraft are prohibited from venturing, while larger sea vessels are alerted against rough to very rough seas.
 

A new weather disturbance has developed within the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR). At 3:00AM today, the Low Pressure Area (LPA) was at 505 km east of Hinatuan, Surigao del Sur. According to PAGASA Weather Specialist Chris Perez, it has slim chance of developing into a tropical depression. Meanwhile, the Northeast Monsoon is affecting Northern and Central Luzon.
 
Today, Cagayan Valley Region, Cordillera Administrative Region and the province of Aurora will have cloudy skies with scattered rains. In Metro Manila, Ilocos Region and the rest of Central Luzon, partly cloudy to cloudy skies will prevail except for isolated rains. In Mindanao and Eastern Visayas, cloudy skies with scattered rain showers and thunderstorms will be experienced. Partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rain showers will dominate.
 
Here’s the replay of today’s interview:
 

A new weather disturbance has developed within the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR).
 
At 11:00 AM today, the Low Pressure Area (LPA) was at 300 kilometers east-southeast of Hinatuan, Surigao del Sur. PAGASA Weather Forecaster Shelly Ignacio said, the LPA has a slim chance of developing into a tropical cyclone but will still dampen parts of Visayas and Mindanao.
 
The trough of the LPA will bring moderate to heavy rains over Palawan, the whole of Visayas, and CARAGA while light to moderate rains will prevail over Northern Mindanao. The Tail-end of a Cold Front will bring light to moderate rains over the provinces of Albay, Sorsogon, Masbate, and Romblon. Residents in these areas must undertake precautionary measures against possible flash floods and landslides and coordinate with their respective local disaster risk reduction and management offices.
 
Meanwhile, Northeast Monsoon is bringing rains to Northern and Central Luzon, and Tail-End of a Cold Front incudes rains in the eastern section of Southern Luzon. Today, Bicol Region, MIMAROPA, Visayas, Mindanao will have cloudy skies with scattered rain showers and thunderstorms, making flash floods and landslides possible. In Cordillera, Cagayan Valley, Aurora and Quezon, cloudy skies with scattered rains will be experienced. The rest of Luzon, including Metro Manila, will have partly cloudy to cloudy skies, or generally fair weather with isolated rains.

 

 
With the surge of Amihan, gale warning remains in the northern and eastern seaboards of Northern Luzon, down to the eastern seaboards of Central Luzon, South, rn Luzon and Visayas. Affected provinces include Batanes; Babuyan Group of Islands; the northern coast of Ilocos Norte; Cagayan; Isabela; Aurora; the eastern coast of Quezon including Polillo Islands; the northern and eastern coasts of Camarines provinces; Catanduanes; the eastern coasts of Albay and Sorsogon; Northern Samar and Eastern Samar. In these areas, fishing boats and small seacraft are prohibited from venturing due to rough to very rough seas.

 
Today’s Philippine Weather Forecast: January 11, 2018
 
Two weather systems will continue to dump rains in portions of Luzon and Visayas today. These include the Tail-end of Cold Front, the extended part of weather system wherein cold air dominates warm air mass in the atmosphere, and the Northeast Monsoon or cold and dry air from Siberia.
 
In the next hours, residents of Quezon, Mindoro, Bicol Region, and Eastern Visayas are alerted against cloudy skies with scattered rain showers and thunderstorms that may trigger flash floods and landslides. In Cordillera, Cagayan Valley and Aurora, cloudy skies will prevail with scattered rains. In Metro Manila, Ilocos Region, and the rest of Central Luzon and CALABARZON, generally fair weather, or partly cloudy to cloudy skies, is expected only with isolated rains. In the rest of MIMAROPA, Visayas, and Mindanao, partly cloudy to cloudy skies will be experienced with isolated rain showers.
 

 
Due to the surge of the Amihan, a gale warning is hoisted in the northern, eastern and western seaboards of Northern Luzon, down to the eastern seaboards of Central and Southern Luzon. Fishing boats and small seacraft are prohibited from venturing, while larger sea vessels are alerted against rough to very rough sea conditions.
 

 

 
Typhoon Paolo may have exited the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) but a new weather disturbance threatens the country.
 
At 3:00 AM, the Tropical Depression was located at 2,145 kilometers east of Mindanao. It has maximum winds of 45 kilometers per hour (kph) with gustiness of 60 kph, moving in a northwest direction at a speed of 15 kph.
 
It is expected to enter the country’s premises on Thursday or Friday and will be given the local name Quedan. According to PAGASA Weather Forecaster Gener Quitlong, the Tropical Depression may recurve away from landmass but can intensify into a typhoon while within PAR.
 
This Tuesday, Mindanao, Western Visayas and Palawan will experience cloudy skies and light to occasional heavy rains due to the Intertropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ). In the rest of the country including Metro Manila, partly cloudy to cloudy skies will prevail with isolated rain showers or thunderstorms mostly in the afternoon or evening.
 

 
The Tropical Storm with international name Lan entered the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) last night and was given the local name, Paolo, the country’ 16th Tropical Cyclone this 2017.
 

 
At 11:00 AM today, the cyclone has intensified into a severe tropical storm and was at 765 kilometers east of Guiuan, Eastern Samar. It has maximum sustained winds of 90 kilometers per hour (kph) near the center and gustiness of up to 115 kph. The storm is forecast to move west-northwest at 7 kph.
 
In an interview, PAGASA Weather Forecaster Gener Quitlong said that Paolo may recurve and miss the landmass due to a current interaction with a Low Pressure Area (LPA) located west of Palawan. But Paolo may also intensify into a typhoon before exiting PAR by Sunday and head towards Japan.
 

 
No tropical cyclone warning signal was issued but the outer rainbands of Paolo may bring scattered light to moderate with possible occasional heavy rains over Bicol Region, Visayas and Mindanao. Meanwhile, the LPA will bring scattered light to moderate with possible occasional heavy rains over Palawan. In the rest of Luzon, including Metro Manila, partly cloudy to cloudy skies will prevail, apart from isolated rain showers mostly in the afternoon or evening.
