Philippine Weather Forecast: December 6, 2017 | Amihan, Tail-end of a Cold Front prevail

According to PAGASA Weather Forecaster Samuel Duran, no weather disturbance or Tropical Cyclone is expected to affect the country within the next three days. However, rains are more likely to persist in Luzon and Visayas due to the presence of the Northeast Monsoon and Tail-End of a Cold Front.

The Northeast Monsoon, also known as Hanging Amihan, is composed of cold and dry air coming from Mainland China or Siberia. It normally affects the country during ber months, bringing colder weather and lower temperatures. In the next hours, Amihan will cause cloudy skies with light to moderate rains in Metro Manila and the regions of Ilocos, Cagayan Valley, Cordillera, Central Luzon and CALABARZON (Cavite, Laguna, Batangas, Rizal and Quezon).

Apart from the rains and slightly cooler breeze, Amihan continues to affect the sea condition. Gale warning is up in the northern seaboard of Luzon including Batanes, Calayan, Babuyan, Cagayan, Isabela, Ilocos Norte, Ilocos Sur, La Union and Pangasinan. The same warning is hoisted in the eastern seaboards of Central and Southern Luzon, affecting Aurora, the eastern coast of Quezon, Polillo Island, Camarines Norte, the northern coast of Camarines Sur and Catanduanes. Rough to very rough sea condition with wave height ranging from 3.4 to 4.5 meters may be risky for fishing boats and other small seacraft.

Meanwhile, the Tail-End of a Cold Front is the boundary or an area where cold and warm air masses meet. Converging winds form clouds that produce rains and thunderstorms.

This weather system will bring scattered rain showers and thunderstorms in Visayas and the regions of MIMAROPA (Mindoro, Marinduque, Romblon and Palawan), Bicol, Caraga, Northern Mindanao and Zamboanga Peninsula. The rest of the country will experience generally fair weather aside from chances of isolated rain showers or thunderstorms.
