Philippine Weather Forecast: Umbrellas on standby this Thursday


Residents of Eastern Visayas and CARAGA regions must gear up for cloudy skies with light to moderate rains and thunderstorms brought by the low pressure area (LPA). The said weather disturbance was last spotted at 460 kilometers east of Hinatuan, Surigao del Sur.

PAGASA Weather Forecaster Manny Mendoza said there is a higher chance of dissipation or weakening within 24 to 36 hours due to temperature, strong vertical wind shear and poor circulation. However, all are still advised to monitor updates and further development.

Meanwhile, the easterlies, characterized by warm and humid air, still prevail over the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR), particularly the eastern section of the country. Metro Manila and the rest of the country will experience partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rain showers or thunderstorms, mostly in the afternoon or evening. All sea travel are safe today as coastal waters throughout the archipelago will be slight to moderate.

Yesterday, most parts of the country experienced very warm weather due to the easterlies. Here’s a list of the highest temperatures:


Mendoza added that temperatures will continue to shoot up. Today, people in Metro Manila should brace themselves for a scorching range of 26 to 35 degrees Celsius. Metro Cebu will have 25 to 32 degrees Celsius while Metro Davao will experience 25 to 34 degrees Celsius.
