MANILA, Philippines — Fair weather is expected nationwide in the next three to five days, with no low pressure area (LPA)  expected to develop in the Philippine area of responsibility, the state weather bureau said Friday, March 18, 2022.

According to Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) weather specialist Ezra Bulquerin, only the easterlies or warm winds blowing from the Pacific Ocean will affect the country’s weather in the coming days, causing warm and humid conditions.

“For the next three to five days, as of now, easterlies po ang prevailing weather system natin na kung saan wala rin po tayong nakikitang namumuong sama ng panahon o LPA na maaaring makaapekto sa ating bansa. Kaya’t makakaranas pa rin po tayo ng magandang panahon. Bahagyang maulap hanggang sa maulap ang kalangitan and then may mga isolated rain showers nga lang pagdating ng hapon at gabi,” he said in a weather forecast.

(For the next three to five days, as of now, the easterlies is the prevailing weather system and we are not monitoring a possible LPA that could affect the country. That’s why we will  experience fair weather with partly cloudy to cloudy skies  and isolated rain showers in the afternoon and evening.)

Bulquerin said that the country has also been experiencing warm and humid weather conditions in the recent days due to the effects of the easterlies.

On Wednesday, Pagasa officially announced the start of the dry season in the country and the termination of the northeast monsoon or “amihan.”

The weather bureau advised the public to take precautionary measures such as ensuring proper hydration to prevent heat stroke.
