 MANILA, Philippines— Amid hot weather conditions, several parts of Luzon can expect quick rain showers due to localized thunderstorms this weekend, according to the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa). 

Pagasa weather specialist Benison Estareja, in an early morning update, said  rain showers are possible in the  Calabarzon (Cavite, Laguna, Batangas, Rizal, Quezon) and Bicol regions, Cagayan Valley, Cordillera Administrative Region  as well as in Metro Manila.


“Mga localized thunderstorm po ito, walang kinalaman sa anumang weather disturbance,” Estareja said on Friday.


 While Luzon can expect fair weather on Friday morning, temperatures may rise to a maximum of 37 and 35 degrees Celsius in Tuguegarao and Metro Manila respectively, the state weather bureau said.

Pagasa also predicts that wind coming from the North Pacific Ocean will lightly tame the heat in Northern and Central Luzon.

“Pagsapit po ng Sunday and Monday sa ating mga kababayan sa Luzon, ‘yung hangin is possible na manggaling sa may hilagang silangan o doon sa may North Pacific Ocean. Ito ang magdadala ng bahagyang pagbaba ng temperatura s’ating mga kababayan sa Northern and Central Luzon,” stated Estareja.

(On Sunday and Monday, it is possible that wind will come in from the north east or from the North Pacific ocean. This will slightly decrease temperatures in Northern and Central Luzon.)

“Asahan pa rin po ang mainit at maalinsangang panahon sa malaking bahagi ng bansa, mapa-Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao po ‘yan. Lalo na po sa Visayas at Mindanao, patuloy ang epekto ng easterlies for the next three days,” he added.

(Expect hot and humid weather in most parts of the country, whether in Luzon, Visayas or Mindanao. Especially in Visayas and Mindanao, where the effects of easterlies are expected in the next three days.)
