Philippine Weather Forecast: August 13, 2017

 
 
Fair Weather Sunday
 
 
A generally fair weather will prevail in the country today. Partly cloudy to cloudy skies will be experienced in Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao only with isolated rain showers or thunderstorms. This weather condition is caused by the Ridge of High Pressure Area (HPA) extending across Luzon and Visayas.
 
“Ridge” refers to the extended part of a High Pressure Area or an anticyclone. Unlike a Low Pressure Area, this indicates an area where the atmospheric pressure is higher than its surroundings. Formation of clouds is usually suppressed, thus, less chance of rains.
 
Meanwhile, in an interview with PAGASA Weather Forecaster Samuel Duran, no weather disturbance is expected to affect the Philippine within the next three days but the public is still advised to continue monitoring updates.
