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.

Today, Ridge of a High Pressure Area extends over Northern Luzon, while Easterlies affect the rest of the country. These will bring partly cloudy to cloudy skies or a generally fair weather will prevail in the entire country only with chances of isolated rain showers or localized thunderstorms in the latter part of the day.

Sweltering days are here as two weather systems begin to prevail.
 
According to PAGASA, an extension or ridge of a High Pressure Area extends over Northern Luzon, while Easterlies remain dominant in the rest of the country. Today, the whole of Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao will experience generally fair and humid weather except for chances of localized thunderstorms in the afternoon or evening.
 
The country may be experiencing rising temperatures, but according to PAGASA, the Hot and Dry Season is yet to be officially declared. For this to happen, all of the following indicators should be present: the elimination of the Northeast Monsoon, the presence of High Pressure Area and Easterlies, and increasing temperatures.
 
Today, air temperature in Metro Manila can soar up to 33 degrees Celsius while residents of Tuguegarao can expect a scorching 35 degrees Celsius.
 

The Northeast Monsoon or Amihan has weakened, leaving Easterlies, the warm and humid aid from the Pacific as the dominant weather system.
 
With the presence of Easterlies, Caraga and Davao Region will have cloudy skies with scattered rain showers and thunderstorms. Meanwhile, the rest of the country including Metro Manila, can expect a generally fair weather only with chances of isolated rain showers.
 
Gale warning has also been lifted.
 

 

 
The prevalence of various weather systems has prompted cancellation of domestic flights and classes in some areas in Luzon today.
 

 
According to PAGASA, the Tail-end of a Cold Front affects the eastern section of Northern and of Central Luzon, bringing cloudy skies with scattered rains. Meanwhile the Easterlies bring scattered rains in the eastern section of Southern Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao. The Northeast Monsoon or Hanging Amihan continues to affect the rest of Northern Luzon, causing a slight breeze.
 
Cagayan Valley, the Bicol Region, Aurora, Quezon, Eastern Visayas, Caraga and Davao Region will experience cloudy skies with scattered rain showers and thunderstorms. In the rest of the country including Metro Manila, partly cloudy to cloudy skies will prevail only with isolated rain showers.
 

 
Gale warning is also in effect in the northern seaboards of Northern Luzon where rough to very rough sea condition is expected. Fishing boats and other small seacraft are advised not to venture out, while larger vessels are alerted against big waves.
 

Generally fair weather prevails today. According to PAGASA Weather Forecaster Chris Perez, partly cloudy to cloudy skies will affect the archipelago only with isolated rain showers or thunderstorms mostly in the afternoon or evening as Easterlies, or warm and humid air from the Pacific Ocean, dominates.
 

 
Perez said, warm and humid weather is still expected today and heat index can soar up to 39.6 degrees Celsius.
 

 
If this good weather continues, we can enjoy various festivals this month.
 
In the Philippines, each city or municipality has a local festival of its own. The celebration includes the feast of the town’s patron saint, as well as an abundance of local products. Some of the festivals celebrated in May are the Bawang Festival of Ilocos province, the Hundred Islands Festival in Pangasinan, the Pahiyas Festival in Quezon, and the Flores de Mayo in almost every town.
