High chance of thunderstorms on Wednesday afternoon or evening — Pagasa
MANILA, Philippines — Warm weather will prevail over the country on Wednesday due to the easterlies but thunderstorms may occur in the afternoon and evening, the weather bureau said.
The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration weather specialist Ariel Rojas said the easterlies will affect the whole country.
“Magdadala ito ng mainit at maalinsangang panahon at mas mataas ang tsansa ng mga thunderstorms sa hapon at sa gabi lalo na sa silangang bahagi ng ating bansa,” he said in the weather bureau’s daily forecast.
(This will bring hot and humid weather and there is higher chance of thunderstorms in the afternoon and evening.)
Pagasa warned that flash floods and landslides could occur during severe thunderstorms.
