According to Pagasa, the hot easterlies, or the wind coming from the Pacific Ocean, will affect the eastern sections of Visayas and Mindanao for Thursday.
“Ibig sabihin po nito ay generally fair weather conditions po tayo sa malaking bahagi ng ating bansa, ngunit mas malaki yung tsansa na makakaranas tayo ng isolated o pulo-pulong pag-ulan, pagkidlat at pagkulog lalung-lalo na dito sa eastern section ng Visayas at Mindanao,” Torres said.
(This means that we will have generally fair weather conditions in the country, but there is a large chance that we will experience isolated or scattered rain, lightning and thunderstorm especially in the eastern section of Visayas and Mindanao.)
Pagasa also identified the day’s hottest temperature at 42 degrees Celsius in Dagupan City, Pangasinan.
Combined with 56 percent relative humidity, the state weather bureau said that the temperature range has been hazardous to the heath of individuals, as heat cramps and heat exhaustion are likely.
