Fair weather on weekend, with isolated rains over parts of PH — Pagasa
MANILA, Philippines — A generally fair weather may persist across the country on Black Saturday and Easter Sunday, but state meteorologists said that thin cloud bands over several parts of the country may still cause isolated rains.
Weather updates from the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) on Friday night showed clouds over parts of Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao, especially the eastern portions of these regions.
In particular, the trough or the extension of Typhoon Malakas is still affecting waters east of Mindanao, despite the weather disturbance already well outside of the Philippine area of responsibility (PAR).
Aside from the isolated rains, Pagasa said that clear skies may be expected in the coming three to five days as no low pressure area is seen to either enter or develop within the PAR.
Pagasa reminded people going out on Saturday to bring umbrellas not only for the possible isolated rains, but also because most areas in Luzon may see warm and sunny weather, starting from Tuguegarao which may have temperatures of 24 to 34 degrees Celsius, Laoag with 24 to 34 degrees, and Metro Manila with 26 to 34 degrees.
Temperatures may be lower in Baguio, at 15 to 24 degrees Celsius, Tagaytay with 23 to 32 degrees, Legazpi with 25 to 32 degrees, and Puerto Princesa with 25 to 31 degrees.
Visayas and Mindanao would not be as hot as Luzon, as partly cloudy skies may bring down temperatures in Tacloban to 25 to 31 degrees Celsius, Cebu and Cagayan de Oro with 24 to 31 degrees, Iloilo with 23 to 31 degrees, Davao with 24 to 34 degrees, and Zamboanga with 23 to 32 degrees.
A gale warning remains raised over the waters of Batanes province, as sea condition may be rough. Sea condition meanwhile on Luzon’s western and eastern seas may be moderate to rough, while the rest of the country’s waters would have a slight to moderate condition.
Pagasa: Fair, hot and humid Good Friday weather
