MANILA, Philippines — Most Filipinos can expect generally fair weather with clear skies for on Wednesday, Valentine’s Day, with some chance of light rains across the country, according to state meteorologists.

In a morning report, state weather specialist Obet Badrina said that the northeast monsoon, or amihan, may bring some light rainfall over parts of Northern and Central Luzon, including Metro Manila.

The shear line, or the convergence of warm and cold wind, may also bring rains to Southern Luzon and some parts of Eastern Visayas.

He said, however, that the weather outside of these areas will be generally fair.

“In other parts of our country, we can expect generally fair weather, with possible isolated rain showers in Visayas and Mindanao. Meanwhile, isolated light rains are expected in parts of Luzon, particularly in the Ilocos Region, Central Luzon, and the Metro Manila area,” Badrina reported in a mix of Filipino and English.

According to the 4 a.m. advisory of the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa), the shear line will bring rain showers and thunderstorms to the Bicol Region, Oriental Mindoro, Marinduque, Romblon, Northern Samar, Eastern Samar, and the southern portion of Quezon.

Cagayan Valley, Aurora, the rest of Quezon, Metro Manila, Cordillera Administrative Region, Ilocos Region, and the rest of Central Luzon and Calabarzon, on the other hand, may be dampened by light rains due to the northeast monsoon, the advisory added.

Meanwhile, Mindanao may see a reprieve in rains after being inundated by the trough of a low-pressure area in late January, Badrina’s report continued.


He still advised Mindanao folk, however, to brace for possible isolated rains.
