Heat to continue in PH due to easterlies — Pagasa
MANILA, Philippines — The Pacific easterlies will keep the country warm and humid, with isolated rain showers likely to form throughout the country due to localized thunderstorms caused by high moisture content in the easterlies.
The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) said that no low pressure systems or storms that could enter the Philippine area of responsibility have been observed as of Thursday afternoon.
For Friday, Luzon would have “generally fair” weather conditions, though isolated rain showers should be expected in some areas including Metro Manila.
Temperatures in Laoag Tuguegarao and Metro Manila range from 24 to 33 degrees Celsius, Baguio with 16 to 24 degrees, Tagaytay with 22 to 32 degrees, Legazpi with 24 to 32 degrees, Puerto Princesa with 25 to 33 degrees and Kalayaan Islands with 25 to 33 degrees.
Visayas and Mindanao will also experience “generally fair” weather, including isolated rain showers due to localized thunderstorms caused by the Pacific easterlies.
Iloilo and Tacloban would experience temperatures ranging from 26 to 32 degrees Celsius, while Cebu and Davao would experience temperatures ranging from 25 to 33 degrees, Zamboanga with 24 to 34 degrees, and Cagayan with 24 to 32 degrees.
Meanwhile, Pagasa also said no gale warning has been raised in the entire country.
“Kaya malayang makakalaot ang mga kababayang mangingisda, at may mga maliliit na sasakyang pandagat,” said Pagasa.
