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.

 

With its northward movement, Typhoon Paeng is forecast to leave the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) on Saturday without any landfall activity.

Enhanced by the Typhoon, the Southwest Monsoon will bring cloudy skies with scattered rain showers in Zamboanga Peninsula, Northern Mindanao and Caraga. Elsewhere, partly cloudy to cloudy skies prevail and localized thunderstorms are possible. PAGASA raised a gale warning off the northern seaboards of Northern Luzon and the eastern seaboards of Luzon and Visayas. 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.

Meanwhile, a new weather disturbance may threaten the country next week. According to PAGASA Weather Forecaster Ariel Rojas, a Low Pressure Area (LPA) was spotted at 3,100 kilometers east-southeast of Mindanao, outside PAR. It is forecast to intensify into a tropical cyclone and enter PAR next week.

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 tropical cyclone with international name “Trami” has entered the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) and is now called through its local name, Paeng.

Now categorized as a Typhoon, Paeng was last spotted at 1,100 kilometers east of Tuguegarao City, Cagayan. It has maximum sustained winds of 170 kilometers per hour (kph) near the center and gustiness of up to 210 kph, moving at 20 kph. Although landfall is less likely to happen, the typhoon is expected to move west-northwest towards the Batanes-Babuyan Group of Island where Tropical Cyclone Warning Signals may be hoisted between Thursday and Friday.

Due to its proximity, the typhoon no direct effect on any part of the country yet. Today, partly cloudy to cloudy skies will prevail in the entire country but isolated rain showers are still possible.

 

The Intertropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ) has oscillated and is now affecting Southern Luzon and Visayas.

ITCZ is characterized as an area where winds coming from the Northern and Southern Hemispheres meet; this interaction results to rains in the affected areas.

As this weather system prevails, Metro Manila, Bicol Region, CALABARZON, MIMAROPA, Aurora and Visayas will experience cloudy skies with scattered rain showers and thunderstorms. Elsewhere, partly cloudy to cloudy skies prevail only with chances of localized thunderstorms.

The Intertropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ) is affecting Eastern Visayas and Mindanao.

ITCZ is characterized as an area where winds coming from the Northern and Southern Hemispheres meet; this interaction results to rains in the affected areas.

As this weather system prevails, cloudy skies with scattered rain showers and thunderstorms will be experienced in Eastern Visayas, Caraga and Zamboanga Peninsula. In the rest of the country including Metro Manila, partly cloudy to cloudy skies will prevail only with isolated rain showers or thunderstorms.

Typhoon “Ompong” has exited the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) last Saturday, leaving the country  storm-free.
The country’s 15th Tropical Cyclone entered PAR last Wednesday, September 12. Typhoon Ompong gained strength over the Philippine Sea, posing threat to Northern Luzon. It made landfall in Baggao, Cagayan at 1:40 a.m. last Saturday. After traversing  Northern Luzon, it left the landmass .

In the absence of a weather disturbance today, the Ridge of a High Pressure Area now extends across Northern Luzon. “Ridge” refers to the extended part of a High Pressure Area, and is an anticyclone. When this weather systems prevails, formation of clouds is usually suppressed, producing less chance of rains.
The entire country will have partly cloudy to cloudy skies except for chances of localized thunderstorms.
Despite the improved weather, classes in all levels are still suspended in parts of Luzon.

The country remains storms-free as the new week sets in.

According to PAGASA Weather Forecaster Samuel Duran, no weather disturbance is expected in the next three days.

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.
