MANILA, Philippines: The state-run weather agency, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa), has forecasted generally fair weather in most parts of the country this Sunday, with chances of light rain. The country will also continue to experience cold winds due to the northeast monsoon or “amihan.”
In the eastern section of Luzon, particularly in the Cordillera, Cagayan Valley, Aurora, Quezon, and Bicol region, cloudy skies and light rain are expected. However, Metro Manila and the rest of Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao, including Palawan, will have generally fair weather, with partly cloudy to cloudy skies.
According to weather specialist Daniel James Villamil, there are currently low chances of tropical storms within the next three to five days. This is reassuring news for the residents and visitors across the country.
However, it is important to note that a gale warning signal is up in the seaboards of Southern Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao, where waves as high as 2.8 to 4.5 meters are expected. Fishers with small seacraft in these areas are advised to take precautionary measures to ensure their safety.
It is always crucial to stay updated with the latest weather advisories and warnings from Pagasa to make informed decisions and stay safe during any weather disturbances. Being prepared and taking necessary precautions can help mitigate any potential risks.
For those planning outdoor activities or travel, the generally fair weather in most parts of the country provides a great opportunity to enjoy the natural beauty and attractions that the Philippines has to offer. Whether it’s exploring the stunning beaches, hiking in the picturesque mountains, or visiting historical landmarks, there are plenty of options to choose from.
Additionally, the cool winds brought by the northeast monsoon create a pleasant atmosphere, making it an ideal time to engage in outdoor activities. From kite flying to picnics in the park, there are various ways to make the most of the weather conditions.
It’s important to remember that weather conditions can change rapidly, so it’s advisable to check the latest updates before making any plans. Local laws and customs should also be taken into consideration to ensure a smooth and enjoyable experience in the Philippines.
