Fair weather on New Year’s Eve, says Pagasa

/ 08:33 AM December 30, 2019

MANILA, Philippines – Filipinos can expect fair weather when they celebrate New Year’s Eve with the prevailing easterlies or the warm winds from the Pacific Ocean, the state weather bureau said on Monday.


According to the latest forecast from the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa), the easterlies will bring warm weather to the whole country.

“Sa kasalukuyan wala po tayong nakikitang anumang mga kaulapan na posibleng maka-apekto at magdala ng mga pag-ulan dito sa ating kapuluan kaya’t sa ngayon wala naman tayong inaasahang mga malalakas na pag-ulan,” weather specialist Meno Mendoza said.


“Ang nakaka-apekto sa ngayon ay itong ating easterlies, o ating mga hangin na galing sa dagat Pasipiko, at ito’y nakaka-apekto nga sa buong bansa na magdadala naman ng maaliwalas na panahon sa napakalaking bahagi po ng ating bansa,” he added.

(Currently, we do not see any cloud bands which can possibly affect and bring rains here in the country, that’s why we are not expecting heavy rains.  What is affecting the country right now are easterlies, or winds from the Pacific Ocean, which brings fair weather to a huge part of the country.)

Meanwhile,  the easterlies will also bring warm temperatures to different parts of the country. Temperature will range from 23 degrees Celsius to 32 degrees Celsius in Metro Manila, 22 to 30 degrees in Laoag City in Ilocos Norte, 21 to 30 in Tuguegarao in Cagayan, 14 to 24 in Baguio City, and 25 to 31 degrees in Legazpi City, Albay.

In Metro Manila, the same temperature range is expected on Wednesday, January 1, and Thursday, except for isolated rain showers and thunderstorms.

But in Baguio City, the weather is expected to be colder as the lowest temperature drop to 12 degrees Celsius on Wednesday, and possibly 11 degrees on Thursday.

The rest of the country will also experience the same weather, with temperatures in Iloilo City playing between 25 to 32 degrees Celsius, 24 to 31 in Metro Cebu, 24 to 32 in Tacloban, 22 to 31 in Cagayan de Oro City, and 25 to 32 in Metro Davao.

For the next three days, weather conditions in Metro Davao are seen to be the same, although occasional rains and thunderstorms may still occur. There are also no gale warnings issued by Pagasa.
