Expect generally fair weather throughout PH on Friday — Pagasa
MANILA, Philippines — Generally fair weather is expected to prevail throughout the country on Friday, but rain should still be expected during the afternoon and evening, said the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa).
“Dito sa Kamaynilaan pati na rin sa nalalabing bahagi pa ng Luzon ay patuloy na makakaranas ng maaliwalas na panahon sa umaga hanggang tanghali,” said Pagasa weather specialist Ana Clauren.
(Manila as well as the rest of Luzon will continue to experience fair weather from morning to noon.)
“Ngunit pagsapit po ng hapon hanggang gabi ay mataas po ang tiyansa ng mga panandaliang buhos ng ulan dulat ng localized thunderstorms,” she added.
(But from afternoon to night, there is a high chance of short-term rains due to localized thunderstorms.)
Meanwhile, Pagasa issued Thunderstorm Advisory No. 20 at 5:28 PM in which moderate to heavy rainshowers with lightning and strong winds are expected over the areas of Zambalez, Pampanga, and Quezon within the next two hours.
“Heavy to in intense rainshowers with lightning and strong winds are being experienced in Tarlac (San Miguel, Anao, Moncada, Paniqui, Ramos, Geron, Pura, Victoria, San Clemente, Camiling, Santa Ignacia, Mayantoc, San Jose, Tarlac City, Capas), and Nueva Ecija which may persist within two hours and may affect nearby areas.

Fair weather will prevail over Visayas and Mindanao, as well as the forecasted rain from afternoon until evening — also caused by localized thunderstorms.
Forecast temperature range in key cities/areas according to Pagasa:
Metro Manila: 25 to 34 degrees Celsius
Baguio City: 16 to 26 degrees Celsius
Laoag City: 25 to 32 degrees Celsius
Tuguegarao: 24 to 35 degrees Celsius
Legazpi City: 25 to 34 degrees Celsius

Pagasa also said that no gale warning is raised across the country’s coasts, as only slight to moderate sea conditions are expected in the Philippines’ surrounding seaboards.
Meanwhile, the state weather bureau is currently monitoring two weather disturbances still outside the Philippine area of responsibility (PAR).
Clauren said of the two is tropical storm “Dianmu” (international name) which was last spotted 585 kilometers northwest of Pagasa Island, Palawan. The other one is a still unnamed storm spotted 2,070 km east of Visayas.
Both the tropical storms are not expected to enter PAR and affect the country in any way, according to Clauren.
