Chances of isolated rains seen in parts of PH — Pagasa
MANILA, Philippines — The entire country is expecting a fair weather on Tuesday, but two systems are expected to bring isolated rains in some parts of the country, the state weather bureau said.
Obet Badrina, weather specialist of the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa), said easterlies may bring isolated rain showers and thunderstorms in the eastern section of the country, while the northeast monsoon or amihan could also cause isolated light rains.
“Itong easterlies, ito yung hanging nagmumula sa Karagatang Pasipiko, ang siyang nakakaapekto sa malaking bahagi ng ating bansa,” Badrina said.
(This easterlies or warm winds coming from the Pacific Ocean affects most parts of the country.)
“Magdadala ito ng mga isolated o pulo-pulong pag-ulan, pagkidlat, pagkulog lalo na nga sa eastern section ng ating kapuluan,” he added.
(This will bring isolated rains and thunderstorms in the eastern section of the archipelago.)
Despite this, most parts of the country are expecting a generally fair weather condition.
“Malaking bahagi ng Luzon ay makakaranas ng generally fair weather … yung bahagi ng Batanes at Babuyan Islands ay unti-unting makararanas na ng epekto ng northeast monsoon o amihan, kaya possible ang isolated o pulo-pulong mahihinang pag-ulan,” he said.
(Most parts of Luzon will experience generally fair weather … parts of Batanes and Babuyan Islands are also starting to feel the effects of the northeast monsoon, thus, isolated rain showers and thunderstorms are possible.)
“Dito rin po sa malaking bahagi ng Kabisayaan ang makararanas ng pulo-pulong pag-ulan, pagkidlat, pagkulog. Malaking bahagi din po ng Mindanao ang makakaranas ng generally fair weather,” he added.
(Here in most parts of Visayas, isolated rain showers and thunderstorms are also expected. Also in most parts of Mindanao, fair weather will be experienced.)
Pagasa did not raise gale warning in any seaboards nationwide.
